Drunk Woman Steals Cell Phone, Causes Hit & Run Crash In Florida Keys

A 54-year-old Florida woman is facing a number of charges after deputies say she got drunk, caused a hit-and-run crash, and stole a cell phone in the Keys all in the same day.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office officials Lee Rojas, of Polk City, snatched a phone out of a man's hand as he walked down a street Saturday morning on Stock Island. 

The victim told deputies that he didn't know Rojas or why she stole his phone.

Some time later, authorities say Rojas crashed her car into another vehicle but fled the scene.

Just before noon, deputies caught up with Rojas near Maloney Avenue and Third Street. 

The deputies said Rojas smelled of alcohol, slurred her speech and refused to take a field sobriety test. 

Her car had front-end damage consistent with being in the crash, officials said.
