Live Oak —
Two people are in custody after a traffic stop Tuesday morning revealed the truck they were in was stolen. However, the two that were arrested were reportedly not the ones who stole the truck, according to Live Oak Police Sgt. Justin Bates.
The truck was stopped at the Suwannee River Regional Library on US 129 South shortly after 8 a.m. Bates apprehended driver Amanda Nicole Barfuss, 33, Live Oak, for attaching a tag not assigned. The passenger, Allen Miguel Camejo, 33, exited the vehicle and ran from law enforcement. He was arrested around 8:30 a.m. near Bass Road, down the road from the library, for resisting arrest without violence, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and a warrant out of Columbia County for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Bates said it was determined that Camejo purchased the stolen truck from someone else. He said Camejo reportedly ran due to his warrant and prior history.
Local schools were on lockdown for a brief time due to Camejo running from law enforcement. No injuries were reported.
