While on routine patrol, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office District One, Deputy Craig Robert discovered a stolen Wisconsin tag on a 2012 Dodge Ram pickup truck parked in front of Room 110 at the Days Inn located at 701 East Fletcher Avenue in Tampa. A further check revealed that the vehicle was stolen out of Washington County, Wisconsin in reference to an armed carjacking with a knife. Two suspects had outstanding warrants for this incident (Scott Kudek and Kayla Goemer). Deputies learned that Scott Kudek had registered at the hotel and was in fact in room 110. Deputies attempted to make contact with the suspects asking them to exit the room. The suspects made comments that they were going to harm themselves and refused to exit.
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office SWAT and Crisis Negotiation Team were activated and began to negotiate with the subjects via telephone. SWAT was able to place both subjects into custody.
The subjects were identified to have multiple felony warrants out of Wisconsin for armed carjacking, obtain controlled substance by fraud, receive stolen property, possession of controlled substance, manufacturer/deliver schedule II narcotics, recklessly endangering safety and felony bail jumping.
