Someone got a better bargain than the owner expected when he put his car up for sale.

The Red Dodge Neon was parked at a lot on County Road 484 near Walmart, but sometime between Saturday at 8:30 p.m. and Sunday at noon the vehicle disappeared.

The theft was reported to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

A 19-year-old Ocala resident fled from a disturbance at Canopy Oaks on Saturday, at about 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, and the subsequent search involved several sheriff’s units, air support and a K-9 unit that had to be called from the sheriff’s substation Halloween party.

Eventually arrested after being located on Southwest 76th Avenue was Matthew Keith Sexton, 19, of Southwest 34th Avenue. He was with a 16-year-old female, and was subsequently charged with kidnapping, interfering with custody and resisting without violence.

Sometime between 3 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. the same Halloween evening, someone took a wallet and credit cards from a vehicle parked in the 4500 block of Southwest 44th Lane. One of the credit cards was used to spend $900 at Best Buy, and $47 at Walmart in Ocala. The victim said he left his car window open and the key in the ignition because, according to the report, “he thought he was in a good neighborhood.”

Sometime between 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 and 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 26, someone entered an unlocked vehicle on Southwest 22nd Street in the 4200 block, and took a CD player, radar detector, three dress shirts and two pairs of dress pants.

Sometime between Oct. 12 and Oct. 19 someone stole a pressure washer from a yard in the 3900 block of Southwest 86th Terrace. The theft was not reported until Oct. 27.

Robin E. Ray, 48, of Winter Park, was accused of DUI after being stopped on Interstate 75 on Sunday at about 8:20 p.m. Another driver had reported that she was driving erratically.

Donald Maurice Labrie, 30, of Southwest 108th Street, was accused of DUI after being stopped for a stop sign violation, speeding 80 in a 50 mph zone, and failing to maintain a single lane. After allegedly failing the field sobriety test, he reportedly had breath readings of .227 and .254. The limit in Florida is .08.
