The Martin County Sheriff’s Office reports that 39-year old Sammy Luciano is no stranger to illegal and dangerous behavior.

Early Sunday morning, Luciano tested the skills of Martin County Sheriff’s midnight-shift deputies, finding out quickly that they don’t give up until the job gets done.

Late last night, the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office released a BOLO (be on the look-out) reference a stolen car out of their county.

Just after 4:00AM, MCSO spotted that vehicle, driving recklessly at speeds of more than 110-mph.

Deputies conducted a felony traffic stop near I-95 and SR714.

When they attempted to speak to the driver, (who turned out to be Luciano), he took off on foot and ran into a dark muddy wooded area.

Deputies set up a perimeter, and within 45-minutes, plucked Luciano out of the muck.

Luciano has an extensive criminal history for crimes such as burglary, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, robbery, fleeing and eluding, battery on a law enforcement officer, violation of probation, possession of drugs, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, and causing serious injury or death by failing to stop.

This time he was charged with felony drunk driving, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and resisting arrest.

He was taken to the Martin County Jail.
