Here are three suspects wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
Zachariah Drakos (DOB 1/3/86) – has a warrant for his arrest out of Lee County, stemming from an incident earlier this year when he nearly crashed into a marked Sheriff’s cruiser. The close call prompted a traffic stop on Drakos, who law enforcement says, acted suspiciously from the start.
A search of the car turned up a lunchbox with a gun inside. Drakos is a convicted felon with several felonies out of Cumberland County, Tennessee, and is not legally allowed to have weapons.
After an arrest for that crime, he was placed on probation and just a couple of weeks ago, he violated those terms. Drakos has been jailed seven times in Lee County, with additional incarcerations in Pinellas and Seminole Counties, on charges of drugs and battery. This offender is 5’9”, 200 pounds.
Brittney Kapish (DOB5/2/88) – is on the run in the Golden Gate Estates after she violated terms of her state probation. This offender has a documented history of heroin use and erratic behavior that landed her in prison for close to four years.
She was arrested for stabbing a man in a fight over a stolen wallet. Law enforcement says, when a woman tried to intervene and disarm Kapish, she retaliated by slashing at the woman and biting her.
That act was her second conviction for violent behavior – the first episode being a battery that landed her in anger management classes. Kapish is believed to still be in the area, possibly working as a bartender or waitress, and using the alias of Brittney Bodnachuk.
Todd Lemarr Johnson (DOB 3/1/92) – just got out of jail three weeks ago, after spending most of this year behind bars for robbery and aggravated assault. Detectives say Johnson approached a woman in a car, jumped on the hood and started tapping on her windshield with a gun. When the victim put the car in reverse in an attempt to leave, Johnson fired multiple rounds, striking the car, but fortunately not the driver.
Johnson was ultimately found guilty of aggravated assault and weapons charges. One of the conditions of his release last month was that he’d follow the exact letter of the law, which he has failed to do, which now makes him in violation of his probation.
To date, Johnson has had his mugshot snapped 17 times on charges including aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, drugs, resisting, robbery and failure to pay child support. He is 6’1” and was last known to be living in Pine Manor.
If you have a tip on the whereabouts of any of these wanted suspects contact Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers. All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
