VIDEO: Deputies need help finding road rage suspect

Comments Off on VIDEO: Deputies need help finding road rage suspect

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who was involved in a road rage encounter and allegedly threatened a motorcyclist with a baseball bat.

  • Road rage incident was captured via Snapchat
  • Authorities looking for the public’s help
  • Deputies say the suspect was driving an older model Nissan extended cab pickup truck

Part of the incident was recorded by witnesses using Snapchat.

Joseph Sudano, 62, said he was driving his motorcycle near the intersection of Hillsborough Avenue and Town ‘N Country Boulevard around 11:30 a.m. on July 20.

Sudano said he was being tailgated by a man driving a gray pickup truck.

"You know, he was driving too close so that was kind of dangerous and I said something to him and he said something back," Sudano said.

He told deputies the driver went past him, slammed on his brakes and got out of his truck.

Sudano said the man grabbed a baseball bat from his truck and threatened him. As he was calling 911, Sudano said the suspect said "I’ll just take this instead" and grabbed the gold necklace off his neck.

"That’s pretty gutsy to do that in broad daylight," he said.

Sudano said he doesn’t regret speaking up with the man got too close.

"No, this is me," he said. "I’m sorry, I’m going to say something. If it’s wrong, it’s wrong because you know,  if I don’t say something he might hit somebody next time."

Investigators are hoping someone recognizes the man. They said the suspect was driving a 2000-2005, light gray, Nissan extended cab pickup truck with flared wheel wells.

Crimestoppers Tampa Bay is offering a $ 3,000 reward in this case.

Anyone with any information reference the suspect is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200 or anyone with any information regarding the identity and whereabouts of this suspect and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).

Hernando Humane Society seeking help to improve security

Comments Off on Hernando Humane Society seeking help to improve security

Folks at the Humane Society of the Nature Coast in Hernando County need some help.

Someone broke into their Brooksville facility late last month and took two puppies.

Since then, the boxer mix puppies have been reunited with their littermates. About a week ago, Humane Society personnel posted video of the person who broke in and took the pups. Soon after, they were returned.

But the problem with security at the Brooksville location remains.

Executive Director Barbara Sprague says they need a better security system, and they need help from the community to make that happen.

"We have been here since 1964 on a large campus," said Sprague, "and the only security measures we really have are door locks and an old security camera."

Those interested in supporting the Humane Society of the Nature Coast can make a donation at

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office says the case is still under investigation. No arrest has been made yet.

By the way, those puppies and their mom will be up for adoption in about a month.
