According to the arrest report, 24-year old Matthew Lambert of Niceville stole a bread truck on New Year’s Day from the Fill Ups Food Store on Emerald Coast Parkway in Destin.
A deputy spotted the truck headed north on State Road 293. But Lambert refused to pull over. He ran a red light at State Road 20. The chase ended when he turned into the Whataburger on SR 20 and crashed into a drainage ditch.
Lambert is charged with resisting arrest, grand theft of a motor vehicle, driving with a suspended license, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The bread truck sustained approximately $8000 in damages.
