A helicopter was used to help track down a suspect who broke a window at a heating and air conditioning business.
Nicholas Fifer, 34, of Brooksville, who has a long criminal history, broke a window at about 7 p.m. Saturday at Mid Florida Heat and Air on U.S. Hwy. 27/441, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.
A police officer spotted Fifer walking away from the business and commanded him to stop. However, Fifer jumped a 6-foot wooden fence and began running, cutting through multiple private properties.
Eagle 1 from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office joined in the hunt for Fifer, who was spotted near a lake. He was eventually taken into custody on charges of resisting arrest and criminal mischief. He was booked at the Lake County Jail on $3,000 bond.
