Stolen bike recovered after traffic stop

 A stolen motorcycle was recovered when a Holmes County Sheriff’s Office deputy conducted a stop for a traffic infraction.

On April 12, a sports bike was traveling at the intersection of Highway 79 and Highway 90 when the driver committed a traffic infraction. An HCSO deputy activated lights and sirens and the driver sped up in an attempt to flee.

The deputy observed the driver turn into Bonifay Mobile Home Park on Highway 90, make a loop in the park and turn back toward Highway 90. As the driver attempted to turn onto Highway 90, the driver struck the stop sign and wrecked the bike.

As this was happening the deputy called the tag number into dispatch and discovered the bike had been stolen out of Lake County.

When the driver wrecked the bike, he attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended. He was identified as Terry L. Evans Jr. of Casselberry. A license check revealed Evans had never had a valid drivers license. A search of Evans’ person found a clear pipe containing methamphetamine in a pocket.

HCSO contacted Lake County Sheriff’s Office and the owner of the bike.

Evans is charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, third degree grand theft, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, operating a vehicle without a valid license and resisting arrest without violence.
