HERNANDO CRIME UPDATE – NOVEMBER 18 – Criminal Attempts To Elude Police By Biking, Running, Swimming Away.


On Oct. 24, 2019 just before 10:30 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Deputy A. Valdez was conducting proactive patrol in the area of Falcon Avenue and Cambay Lane in Spring Hill when he observed a male riding a bicycle approaching him.

Deputy Valdez immediately recognized the male on the bicycle, from previous law enforcement contacts, as Gary Francis Molloy.  Deputy Valdez also had knowledge that Molloy had an active felony warrant for his arrest. After Molloy passed the deputy and turned onto Falcon Avenue, Deputy Valdez turned his patrol vehicle around and began to follow him.  Molloy was now operating his bicycle in the opposing lane of traffic.
