April 19, 2024 – Englewood, FL

A Kissimmee man robbed the Dollar General store on Oceanspray Blvd. in Englewood, FL and attempted to flee from deputies, but was apprehended after a short chase.

At approximately 12:30 in the afternoon on Thursday, April 18, 2024, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office received 911 calls in reference to an armed robbery at the Dollar General located at 11500 Oceanspray Blvd. The calls stated that a black man had entered the store, proclaimed that it was a robbery, and then chased a customer into the parking lot. Outside, the suspect ripped the license plate off of the customer’s vehicle and then armed himself with a machete.

Deputies immediately responded to the location as the subject entered a Toyota Camry and attempted to flee. As deputies made efforts to stop the vehicle, the suspect attempted to ram their patrol cars and was waving the machete out of the window. The deputies were able to avoid the collisions and continued to pursue the suspect.

After a short chase, the Camry came to a stop near the intersection of Piney Court and Treadway Rd. The suspect, identified as Scott Moisses Pierre (12/16/1993) of Kissimmee, FL, eventually complied with deputy commands to exit the vehicle and lay on the ground. As he was being handcuffed, Pierre then began to kick at the arresting deputies, striking one in the leg. He continued to be combative both at the scene and upon arrival to the Charlotte County Jail.
