Police use the drone to find the suspect hidden in wooded ground

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – Port St. The Lucie Police Department says their officers used a drone to find a suspect who fled an accident Sunday.

Police say 43-year-old Jeremiah Nantz was riding a motorcycle that was not registered with a stolen registration plate at Port St. Lucie Blvd.

According to officials, Nantz forgot to collapse the outrigger, causing him to crash into the curb. Nantz then fled on foot just after midnight.

Officer Faleiros recently joined the Drone unit and operated the drone on his first call mission with K9 officers Biano and Ciro.

Officials say Faleiros located the suspect hiding in a wooded area and directed officers directly to Nantz.

Officers say they also found crack tubes and prescription drugs that Nantz did not have a prescription for.

According to officials, Nantz was also wanted for an incident that occurred six hours earlier, when he entered a house, pushed a victim and poured bleach over a person’s personal belongings, causing damage to clothing worth $ 3,000 and $ 200 for a phone.

Due to injuries from the motorcycle accident, Nantz was taken to a local hospital before being taken to jail.

Nantz has been charged with battery, burglary, criminal accident, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of drug equipment, failure to register a motor vehicle, driving with a revoked driving license and driving on a motorcycle without endorsement.
