Traffic Fatality, Burglary Might Be Linked, Police Say


Mitchell, Tia, The Florida Times Union


Byline: TIA MITCHELL, The Times-Union

A Jacksonville youth's death early Tuesday morning after an accident could be linked to a burglary at an auto dealership, police said.

Samuel Williams, 17, of the 2200 block of West 13th Street was killed while riding an all-terrain vehicle about 4:20 a.m. in the 2200 block of West 14th Street. Williams, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to Shands Jacksonville hospital, where he died.

The ATV, as well as an off-road motorcycle that was left at the accident scene, had been stolen from First Coast Auto Sales at 3552 W. Beaver St., police said.

Patrol officers went to the business Monday night when the burglar alarm was tripped about 9:30 p.m., but they found no evidence of a break-in. Police were called back to the scene about 4 a.m., when they determined nine vehicles -- ATVs, as well as on-road and off-road motorcycles -- had been stolen.

Police said five of the vehicles were found Tuesday behind a house at 2233 W. 14st St., which is less than a block from where the accident occurred.

Lt. Robert Connor, who heads both the traffic homicide and auto theft units, said police have not determined what caused the crash that killed Williams.

It is too early to say if Williams had participated in burglarizing the business, Connor said.

He said police are looking for the person riding the off-road cycle and anyone with details about the burglary.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers offers rewards of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the people responsible for crimes in the area, and callers can remain anonymous.
