Another driver, identified as Worst, was caught driving a stolen vehicle in Palm Coast on Thursday.

She was originally sentenced to prison on multiple charges, including failure to comply with sex offender reporting and possession with purpose to deliver a controlled substance, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies said she also previously faced charges for providing false identification to law enforcement in Brevard County last June. She was found with the stolen vehicle in a parking lot and is being held on no bond at a Green Roof Inn while awaiting extradition to her home state, Arkansas.

The final arrest in the 32-hour period was Brown, who is also from Jacksonville. He was arrested after 8 p.m. when someone reported him for reckless driving on Interstate 95.

Deputies found Brown in a RaceTrac gas station on SR-100 with a Chevrolet Colorado truck reported stolen from Orange County. Like Worst, Brown is being held at the Green Roof Inn, with a bond of $3,500.

In a press release, Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said the technology within the Real-Time Crime Center helped police apprehend the criminals before they did something else to the community.
