GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - An Alachua County man is behind bars after he stole a deputy cruiser from the airport.

According to Alachua County Sheriff deputies, Duncan Smith took an ASO vehicle from a fenced in parking lot at the Gainesville Regional Airport on Thursday night.

Deputies were able to track down the 20 year-old after he used a ASO credit card, that was also in the cruiser, in Columbia County. Smith then returned to Alachua County, where he was stopped by deputies.

Smith says he was on a “spiritual journey” when he took the vehicle.

He is charged with burglary, larceny and vehicular theft.
