Two people wanted on murder charges in Ohio were arrested in Daytona Beach Shores Saturday. Sgt. Michael Fowler with the Daytona Beach Shores Department of Public Safety says the two were apprehended after a tip was received from a citizen about a stolen vehicle used by the couple. Daytona Beach Shores Police officers were radioed about the report of the vehicle being seen on South Atlantic Boulevard, and spotted the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer with an Ohio license plate.
Couple detained after chase
Police say the suspects abandoned the SUV at the Walgreens parking lot in Daytona Beach Shores and then fled on foot, but officers took them into custody after a short foot chase. A Taser was also deployed in the capture of one of the suspects. Daytona Beach Shores Police were also assisted by the Volusia County Beach Patrol and the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office helicopter.
Sgt. Fowler says both suspects were wanted in connection with a murder in Cadiz, Ohio and were believed to be armed and dangerous. He also says Daytona Beach Shores Police have been working with investigators from Ohio, and that 24-year old Matthew Dowdle and 33-year old Eve Kelley were to be transferred without bond to the Volusia County Branch Jail.
