ED NOTE: We were recently threatened with legal action by the “general counsel” of the company that owns the BP Station at Glades and Butts Road (aka the BP Station at I-95 and Glades). The group, apparently, did not like our suggestion that the gas station seems to be a not infrequent hotbed of criminal activity.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Boca PD) — On Wednesday, August 5, 2015, an officer from the Boca Raton Police Services Department was conducting surveillance at the BP Gas station located at 5440 Glades Road. The officer spotted a white Nissan with dark tint slowly driving around while the occupants seemed to be looking into other cars at the pumps. After numerous loops the car exited the station onto Butts Road. The officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop due to the very dark tint on the windows. While attempting to stop the car, the driver accelerated at a high rate of speed, ran a red light and hit another car turning onto Glades Road from Renaissance Way. The driver fled the scene and entered 95 south.
Minutes later, another Boca Raton Police Officer, who was heading home from her shift, came upon an accident on I-95 South. The car involved was a white Nissan that was unoccupied. The officer radioed in the license plate number and confirmed that it was the same car that fled the previous scene. Witnesses told the officer three occupants got out and started walking down the interstate. Officers quickly located the three individuals.
After confirming their identities, it was determined that the driver, Jamahn Ranard Arnold, had seven warrants for his arrest from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. The warrants included robbery, grand theft auto, and multiple narcotics charges. In addition to the outstanding warrants, Arnold was charged with Driving without a license, leaving the scene of an accident, and aggravated fleeing & eluding. The other two occupants were released from the scene.
