Busy Afternoon For A Clearwater Car Thief

Clearwater,Fla.(970 WFLA)-A convicted felon wanted for parole violations didn't  give up, after  his  attempt to get away from police proved to  be a challenge.

It didn't take Shanon Dubois long to  crash a truck  he had  stolen  from  Dayton Andrews in Clearwater. The collision didn't slow him down.  Dubois continued to drive the damaged  truck  through the neighborhood of Coachman Hill Preserve, where after  mowing  down a couple  of mailboxes and slamming into a security gate, the wrecked truck would go no further.  Dubois  left  it and ran off. 

On his way out of the preserve, he busted  into two occupied homes, injuring a woman  during a confrontation,  before his getaway  on a motorcycle he had found in the garage.  

Duboise dumped the  motorcycle at a near-by home,  where he was chased away by the resident.

The sheriff's office say Dubois tried four more times to steal a vehicle,  including physically attacking a second person, but was not  successful. 

He was arrested inside the Florida Central Credit Union after several witness'es   reported seeing him  walking  along Coachman Road.  

Deputies say he had  hydrocodone and alprazolam in his possession, he's now in the  Pinellas County Jail.
