Why can’t a Florida Man find a Pay n’ Spray when he needs one? Reinier Lazaro Perez and Dayanly Cutino Gonzalez were spotted behind the Days Inn in Palm Coast Florida. They were spray painting a Peterbilt semi-tractor in the back corner of the parking lot. The hotel is located just off I95, we’ll get back to that. Someone (who obviously can’t mind they own business) thought that someone spray painting a semi truck in the parking lot of a hotel was suspicious. So they called the cops. When Flagler County Sheriff’s Office  deputies arrived the two dropped the cans took off running along Southbound I95. That’s your escape plan?

Dayanly clearly hadn’t been doing her cardio and was quickly captured. Reinier managed to hide in the woods for about 2 hours before they found him.

The Peterbilt semi-tractor had been stolen just hours earlier from Columbia County, Florida.

The recovered semi-tractor is valued at $280,000. The semi-tractor’s original color is pink (really). The pair were in the process of spray painting the stolen semi-tractor red to conceal its original color when deputies arrived. Makes sense. I’m actually impressed with how good their paint job was coming along. They even took the time to tape it off. The semi-tractor’s GPS had been disabled and removed but was found nearby in the woods.

The female subject, Dayanly Cutino Gonzalez, was placed under arrest.  Her charges were Resisting Arrest Without Violence, Grand Theft – Motor Vehicle, and Felony Criminal Mischief. She was booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. She’s out after posting $13,500 bond.
Florida Man Reinier Lazaro Perez, was placed under arrest for Resisting Arrest Without Violence, Grand Theft – Motor Vehicle, Felony Criminal Mischief, Possession of a Removed Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), and Possession of Fentanyl. There’s that last one. Fentanyl. Seems like it’s not a Florida Man story without Fentanyl.
