Police seek man accused of stealing motorcycle
Police are seeking Jeremy Bernard Hazelton in an incident where they believe he stole a motorcycle when he took it for a test drive.
A few days prior to July 11, Eric Villalobos listed a CR80R for sale on craigslist.com. He got some text messages regarding it and then received a call from someone saying he was the one who texted to him. The call failed, so Villalobos called back the number. A woman answered the phone and handed the phone to the person who called. They two agreed to meet at Polk Street Community Center, at 1255 W. Polk St.
Villalobos met with Hazelton there and they discussed the price of the motorcycle. Hazelton asked if he could take the motorcycle for a test drive, according to reports. Villalobos asked if he could see the cash. Hazelton showed him a debit card and said he would get the cash if the motorcycle ran well, the police reported.
He gave Villalobos the debit card and his cellphone. Hazelton then got onto the motorcycle, took off and didn’t come back, police said.
Villalobos called the police and while he was waiting, he called the first number from which he received a call from Hazelton. There was no answer and he called the second number with the same result, police reported.
During the police investigation, they contacted Samari Phelps who told police Hazelton borrowed her cellphone to attempt to buy the motorcycle because his battery was low. Phelps did not hear the whole conversation, but she identified Hazelton by name, police reported.
In a photo array from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Villalobos, on Sept. 20, identified Hazelton and said he wanted to file charges against him. He said the motorcycle’s value is $1,300.
Linwood Keiton Jones, 26, of 2095 Georgia St., was charged Oct. 13 with violating a domestic protection order saying he thought it had expired.
An anonymous person called the Bartow police to report a woman was screaming. Jones and Manning both told police there was no problem, and no one was screaming.
After doing a check on the people, the officer found there was a non-expiring injunction against Jones dated June 5, police reported. He police he thought the order was dropped two weeks earlier.
