MILTON — The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission filed these cases between Sept. 29 and Oct. 5.

This report represents some events the FWC handled over the past week; however, it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.


Officer Lewis was patrolling in Milton when he observed a truck being driven erratically.

He turned around as it went out of sight behind him, but by the time he caught up to the vehicle, the driver had crashed into a tree and fled the scene on foot.

After calling in the registration, he determined that the driver had an outstanding warrant. Several other officers arrived to assist as well as the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Department of Corrections and Florida Highway Patrol.

FWC Pilot Tolbert assisted at the scene with a helicopter.

After several hours, the suspect was spotted by a resident and was soon apprehended.

He was arrested on outstanding warrants and additional charges will be filed by other agencies.
