Cops chase, catch alleged thief of truck, defibrillator

December 28, 2013 

A Ramrod Key man remained jailed Friday on $75,000 bond for allegedly taking law enforcement on a chase on Christmas and stealing emergency medical equipment.

Corey Robinson, 24, was arrested on felony charges of grand theft between $300 and $5,000, grand theft auto, auto burglary, resisting arrest with violence and two counts of battery of a law enforcement officer.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says Sgt. Evan Calhoun tried to stop Robinson, who was driving a Ford F-250, around 5:30 a.m. on Indies Drive in connection with an auto burglary investigation, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

Robinson wouldn't stop and instead sped down Indies and crashed into mangroves before running away, Herrin said. Calhoun and Deputy Josh Gordon caught up to him.

Herrin said the F-150 turned out to be stolen, along with goods inside stolen in an auto burglary earlier in the morning.

The following day, Dec. 26, Robinson was charged with burglary of an authorized emergency vehicle and theft of emergency medical equipment for reportedly broking into a Monroe County Fire Rescue truck and stealing a defibrillator.
