    A man wanted for stealing a motorcycle was arrested by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office on Friday, September 28.

    On Tuesday, September 25, detectives received a tip that Andrew Brown, 32, was trying to sell a motorcycle reported stolen earlier in the day. Detectives located the motorcycle at an apartment complex in Riverview and attempted to arrest Brown, but he fled on foot and jumped into the Alafia River to evade capture.

    A tip from Crimestoppers on Friday morning led detectives to a residence where Brown was staying. Brown was arrested and taken into custody without incident. He's facing charges of Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle and Resisting an Officer without Violence.

    The Sheriff's Office would like to thank the community for its assistance in locating Brown.
