Andrew Slinkard (DDN 12/29/83) – Wanted in Lee County for probation violation on robbery charge.
He was first arrested after going to a convenience store in the middle of the night, where he threatened the clerk and demanded all the money from the cash register. After collecting the money, he jumped on his bike and drove off.
Shortly after, the sheriff’s office was called about a suspicious man outside another convenience store handing out dollar bills to random passers-by – Crime Stoppers said he told people he had just come from Win the lottery.
Turns out it was the same guy who had just robbed the store about an hour earlier. Slinkard ended up spending around six months in jail for the felony, before being released on probation, which he has now raped.
In addition to this charge, he was also the subject of a pre-arrest for fraud, where he used his brother’s name during a traffic stop to avoid being arrested for driving with a suspended license.
Slinkard is 6’1 “, 170 pounds, and was last known as living in North Fort Myers. Upon his arrest, he will be detained without bail.
Ronald stewart (DDN 9/9/90) – Wanted in Lee County for probation violation on three counts of robbery.
He worked at a local store and fraudulently used coupons to increase sales, which he then put in his pocket, instead of the cash register.
An audit of the store’s finances showed that Stewart did it not once, not twice, but 2,357 times for a total payment of $ 4,996.84.
When the theft was finally revealed, Stewart lost his job and gained time behind bars.
To date, it has already been booked 15 times in Lee County for robbery, burglary, property damage and battery charges.
Stewart is 6’1 “, 195 pounds and has a tattoo of the word” love “on his left ring finger. Upon arrest, he will be held without bail.
Joshua Tisserand (DOB 1/12/79) – Wanted in Collier County for probation violation for two counts of auto theft and one count of criminal mischief with property damage.
He is accused of stealing cars from his former employer and a random stranger who left the keys in the car as he rushed into the gas station.
Weaver has 14 priors at Collier on charges of fraud, resistance, bodily harm, aggravated assault with a lethal weapon, possession of methamphetamine and cocaine, and driving under a suspended license.
He was also jailed for child neglect, after leaving a five-year-old child alone, who was found by police dirty, without shoes, hungry and thirsty.
Fortunately, MPs were able to get the child to safety, while transporting Weaver to jail. He was last known as a plumber, with previous experience in the construction industry.
