BSO Sgt, Deputies rammed in Deerfield

Posted on 16 April 2014 by JimLusk


Shortly after 3 a.m., BSO deputies were responding to a call from an Oakland Park resident that her car alarm was going off. A BSO sergeant en route to the home saw a Chevy Malibu with dark tinted windows leaving the area at a high rate of speed. The vehicle sped onto Interstate 95 and into Deerfield Beach, where the driver rammed a deputy’s vehicle and continued to flee. In the process, he hit two other BSO vehicles, incapacitating the Malibu. He then bailed out of the car and ran through a relative’s apartment, over a barbed-wire fence and into a field. BSO deputies used the helicopter and K-9s to track him, and he was eventually apprehended. Two of the deputies he rammed were transported to Broward Health North Medical Center. Their injuries do not appear to be serious.  A sergeant driving the third vehicle that was hit was uninjured. The suspect, Derek Fuller (10/21/87), was transported to the hospital for treatment of a dog bite before going to jail. Currently out of jail on bond, he faces multiple charges including three counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault, fleeing and eluding and possession of cocaine. BSO Violent Crimes Unit detectives are investigating the incident.

LHP vehicle recognition system alerts

Posted on 26 March 2014 by JimLusk

LHP Cops find stolen car ; burglar asks for ride from BSO Deputy3-27-Burglery 023

Early afternoon yesterday, Mar 27,  a stolen vehicle cruised into

Lighthouse Point. The camera system set up to detect  stolen vehicles

did its  job and alerted the desk. A patrol unit was dispatched to that area

and within 6 or 7 minutes, the officer spotted the truck. A black male was

getting into the vehicle with a bounty of stolen goods he had just ripped off

from a house. When the LHP car tried to stop him, he fled. They broadcast an alert

over the BSO radio and Deerfield started placing cars to look for him.

It wasn’t long before the BSO burglary apprehension unit saw the dude and

tried to stop him. He jumped on I-95 and went southbound in the northbound lanes.

In that situation a chase will not happen. The guy panicked and pulled over to try his luck on foot.

When he ran across lanes to the other side, he was blocked by that giant sound wall, so he ran back to the other side.

Then he jumped a chain link fence and walked right up to a BSO under cover car that was staged there and asked the deputy for a ride. The deputy said, “sure I’ll give you a ride” and promptly arrested him.

The deputy gave him a ride to the BSO District 10 station. They recovered thousands in property from

the stolen car on I-95. LHP Chief  Ross Licata  told the Observer “our vehicle recognition system works.”
