Multiple deputies converged and quickly took 27-year-old Johnathan Hernandez into custody. In his backpack, deputies found a loaded pistol.

DELTONA, FL – A Volusia Sheriff’s Office drone flying overhead helped deputies quickly catch an armed suspect who jumped out of a bedroom window as he tried to escape arrest.

According to authorities, deputies were at the house on Urbana Avenue in Deltona around 6:40 a.m. Monday providing an escort for the victim in an incident that started hours earlier. Overnight, the victim had reported the suspect texted her that he was on his way to her house to shoot her.

For her safety, the victim left the house for the night. In the morning, deputies responded to check and clear the house for her before she went back inside.

As deputies made announcements at the front door, another deputy operating a drone overhead spotted someone exiting through a back bedroom window, running through the backyard and jumping a fence.
