Florida man arrested for theft after attaching a power pole to the roof of his car
The accident occurred in Lakeland, Florida. A Florida man attached a utility pole to the roof of his car. Law enforcement spotted the man on his way to the recycling center and retrieved the service pole. The authorities announced the arrest of the man and his imprisonment.
Florida Highway Patrol Soldiers received information from Highway 4 District on Monday. The report contained information that a man had stolen something. The police quickly arrived at the scene. Witnesses said that a man drove away from the area by loading a utility pole into his car.
The man was driving a sedan. He had attached the service pole to the roof of his car and headed off to Interstate 75. He later realized he was aiming to get to the recycling center. The man succeeded before the police arrived at the scene. However, he was not taken to the recycling center because he did not have the appropriate documents regarding the service shaft.
Public Affairs Officer Sergeant Steve Gaskins made a statement regarding the incident. Florida Highway Patrol soldiers took the crankshaft from the man and put it back in place. Gaskins said 71-year-old Douglas Allen Hatley was arrested and his Toyota confiscated in 1997.
Hatley was charged with grand larceny and sent to Hillsborough County Jail. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, this was not Hatley’s first attempt to commit a crime. In 2017, Hatley was implicated in grand theft, dealing in stolen goods, and making false statements about recycling metallic items.
