Lakeland Teacher Threatened While Driving, Suspect Sought

LAKELAND, Fla. – The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is looking for 37-year-old Raymond Hein. On Friday, a school teacher from Lakeland was driving on Hwy 98 when a red Nissan Altima cut her off and began driving erratically.

The Nissan came to a stop right next to the teacher’s vehicle when traffic stopped at the light at Winter Lake Road. According to Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the teacher said that she saw two people in the Nissan, a man, and a woman. The man yelled at the teacher, “You failed my child *%&!*!”

Then the man held up a handgun and yelled, “I’ll blow your F***ing head off, Karen.” The teacher, whose name is not Karen, drove to a gas station and called police.

The victim gave deputies a partial tag number from the Nissan, and provided a description of the man. Detectives took the partial tag and matched with a tag on a red Nissan Altima. The owner of that Nissan matched the description given by the victim. And that exact Nissan was recorded driving on Hwy 98 near the crime scene.
