Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police have charged a man who crashed a rental car into a sheriff’s patrol car on Sept. 9, with multiple offenses.
Leonardo Divinci “Rock” Larck has been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; trafficking heroin; possession with intent to distribute heroin, MDMA, and cocaine; and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
The charges are a result of the investigation of the crash conducted by Metro’s Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office request and a separate investigation by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT).
Larck was taken into custody while being treated for injuries received when the rental car he was driving collided with a marked Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Chatham County Sheriff’s Deputy Edward Gray on the 37th Street Connector to Interstate 16.
Both men had been transported for treatment of injuries in the 9:40 a.m. crash when deputies discovered an active probation violation warrant against Larck for a previous aggravated assault.
Larck was previously sought by the Metro Homicide Unit as a person who may have had information regarding the July 18 homicide of Arkeen Abron on the 1200 block of Seiler Avenue. He remains incarcerated.
Investigations continue into the crash, the drug charges and the homicide by MAIT, CNT and the SCMPD Violent Crimes Division respectively.
