A Fort Lauderdale man who has been in custody in other jurisdictions since December of 2013 has been returned to Monroe County to face charges here.
21 year old Darrell Bush and four accomplices smashed the windows on eight vehicles and took items from them on July 29th 2013. The cars were parked at the Dolphin Research Center, the Long Key Bridge and Robbie’s Marina. They took property including cell phones, computers, cameras, cash, credit cards and jewelry.
Deputies stopped the car the suspects were traveling in at the 90 mile marker because they had information the car may have been involved in the crimes. The car – with four people inside – fled from the traffic stop.
They turned onto Coconut Row and all four people fled from the car on foot. Two women in the car were found hiding a short distance away. Bush was located at a bus stop nearby and was arrested after he gave deputies a false name.
Further investigation revealed stolen items from the burglaries discarded in the area of Coconut Row, where the suspects fled from the car.
The three other suspects in the case have already been taken into custody for the eight vehicle burglaries and for resisting arrest. Bush was in custody in other jurisdictions on other charges and was finally returned to Monroe County to face his charges here.
The three others arrested in connection with this case:
31 year old Darrion Donaldson of Planation, Florida
23 year old Lawanda Finley of Fort Lauderdale
23 year old Dominique Hill of Fort Lauderdale
