ALACHUA COUNTY, Fl. — Deputies in Alachua County announced Sunday that they found the car driven by Othal Wallace, the man accused of shooting Daytona Beach officer Jason Raynor on Wednesday.
Alachua County Sheriff Clovis Watson Jr. said the gray 2016 Honda HRV with a California tag 7TNX532 was found on Saturday.
Deputies said the car was found at the parking lot of the Home Depot on Tower Road.
The car was towed back to the Daytona Beach Police Department for processing and evidence gathering.
A sheriff’s office spokesperson released a statement saying, “we are grateful to be able to assist our fellow law enforcement community in resolving this case and also grateful to those who provided information and assistance that led to the discovery of the car.”
Daytona Beach police announced Saturday morning that Wallace was arrested in DeKalb County, Georgia.
He will be sent back to Daytona Beach to face charges, but the time of his return has not been announced.
Officer Raynor is still recovering in the hospital from his injuries.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Raynor and his family as he continues his road to recovery.
