The scene was strange from the start. DeKalb County police got a call Friday about a stolen Honda Fit spotted at Serenade Apartments on Flat Shoals Parkway. While officers looked over it and other suspected stolen cars parked nearby, someone kept pressing the clicker: locked, unlocked, locked, unlocked. Police say they confirmed two were stolen and they staked out a third to see who would drive it, according to an incident report. They soon spotted Tristahn Ash, 20, get behind the wheel of the 2015 Infiniti QX80, valued at $42,111, the report said. Police pulled him over on Flat Shoals Parkway near Columbia Drive, but he allegedly ran, only to be caught a few hundred feet away. That’s when he allegedly tried to bribe an officer to let him go. “Officer, my money is long. I got 20 bands ($20,000),” the report quotes him saying. “If you help me, I can help you.”
