Satellite Beach Police conducted a manhunt for a wanted fugitive in South Patrick Shores in Satellite Beach. A K-9 unit from the Melbourne Police Department was brought in to assist.
The chase began after a traffic stop near St. Georges Court where the suspect took off on foot into the nearby neighborhood.
The fugitive was later spotted jumping off of a seawall on Cardinal Drive and made his way northward toward Skylark Boulevard where he then headed east toward the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and South Patrick Drive.
He then phoned a friend to pick him up from the Kangaroo Express. The friend complied and drove throughout the neighborhood in a black Ford Taurus station wagon looking for him. Police kept surveillance on the station wagon waiting for the suspect to jump into the car.
The suspect never came out of hiding to meet his friend.
