Tommy Lucas

A Niceville man is facing numerous charges after fleeing from Okaloosa County deputies last night. Deputies attempted a traffic stop on a truck driven by 27-year old Tommy Daniel Lucas around 11:00 p.m. for multiple moving violations in the area of SR 293 and Highway 20 in Niceville. Instead of stopping, Lucas accelerated and continued at high rates of speed on SR 293 into oncoming traffic lanes. Lucas drove the vehicle into the wood line on Eglin AFB property where he fled on foot into the woods. OCSO K9 “Burt” apprehended Lucas approximately 40 yards from the vehicle and he was taken into custody. Deputies located a baggie containing heroin near where Lucas was apprehended and also found methamphetamine in Lucas’ vehicle. This is the third time Lucas has been arrested by the OCSO in the last month. Lucas is charged with fleeing and eluding with disregard for safety to persons or property, possession of a controlled substance without prescription, trafficking heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting officer without violence.
