COCOA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- 5-12 -

A man running from authorities jumped into the Atlantic Ocean, where a sheriff's helicopter used a spotlight to hunt him down.

Deputies arrested 30-year-old Ryan Prebor Wednesday night after
searching the Atlantic Ocean along Cocoa Beach for 40 minutes.

The chase began after investigators confronted Prebor while he
was working at a beachside restaurant. He was wanted on charges of
dealing in stolen property and providing false verification of

Prebor ran from authorities, who chased him several blocks
before he "ran straight into the water."

It wasn't his first police chase. In 2005, records show he led
police on a car chase that ended with 17 charges against him.

This time, Prebor was charged with resisting arrest without
violence. He's also been linked to an armed robbery.
