PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL– A 35-year-old man has been taken into police custody in connection with a missing Palm Beach Gardens Lyft driver.
Authorities in Rutherford County, North Carolina, apprehended Matthew Scott Flores following a police chase in the missing 74-year-old’s vehicle.
Officials say Flores appeared to be under the influence of drugs at the time of his arrest.
Gary Levin’s was reported missing on Monday in Palm Beach Gardens after his family says he went to pick up a customer around 1:30 p.m., and they lost contact with him.
“We don’t know if he actually picked up the person, or if he picked up a person as it was completed, or what happened,” Levin’s daughter Lindsay DiBetta said.
While Levin’s red 2022 Kia Stinger has been located, Levin remains missing.
No other information is available about Levin at this time but, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office did report that Flores is wanted for second-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, discharging a firearm in public, and violation of supervised pre-trail release in Florida.
He is expected to be extradited to Florida to face charges.
