Officials Search For Man Who Shot At Deputies
Published August 4th, 2013
FROSTPROOF, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in Polk County are searching for a man who shot at deputies.
The Sheriff's Office is offering a $5,000 reward for information on the whereabouts of 20-year-old Eleno Suarez.
Detectives asked for the public to help in locating two suspects in a armed home invasion, robbery and carjacking in Frostproof in July. Suarez was one of those suspects.
On Saturday, deputies found him at a convenience store and tried to stop him in his car. But Suarez kept going and deputies began to pursue his car.
During the chase, Suarez fired multiple shots at deputies. No one was injured.
Suarez ultimately lost control. Deputies were able to apprehend five passengers, but Suarez fled on foot. He now faces charges of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer.
