Here are three suspects wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Jason Carman

Jason Carman (DOB 6/3/83) – He is wanted in Lee County for violation of probation on charges of grand theft, tampering with evidence and altering VIN numbers. His current situation stems from an incident where he worked with some friends to steal several ATV’s and then file off the VIN numbers so they could be sold illegally.

Over the years, Carman has been involved in a series of crimes, which led to 26 bookings on multiple counts of felony battery, the sale and delivery of cocaine, burglary, domestic violence, grand theft auto, trafficking in stolen property, resisting and aggravated battery on a pregnant victim.

This 37-year-old Alva resident has also been sent to the state Department of Corrections three times for theft and drugs and has also been jailed in nearby DeSoto County.

He is 5’11”, 191 pounds, with a tattoo of the phrase “Cracker Style” on his stomach and the name Ashley on his chest. And upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.

Jose Walton Rodriguez

Jose Walton Rodriguez (DOB 12/23/85) – He is wanted in Collier County for two counts of violation of state probation on several narcotics possession charges.

He’s been jailed four times previously on a collection of charges to include the possession, sale and delivery of cocaine, robbery/home invasion with a firearm, trafficking cocaine, the sale and delivery of ecstasy and evidence tampering. In addition, he’s been sent to the state Department of Corrections twice for drug trafficking and robbery.

He is 5’9”, 162 pounds with numerous tattoos, including a man holding a baby with the words “King of Kings” on his upper left arm. He also uses the alias of King Sosa and has been on the run since December.

He has a long history of living in Collier County, specifically the Golden Gate Estates area, but also has connections in Sarasota who could be hiding him out.

Trace Wickman

[CAPTURED] Trace Wickman (DOB 7/17/66) – He is wanted in Lee County for violation of probation after his fourth DUI conviction.

His most recent drunk driving incident happened on Veterans Memorial Parkway in Cape Coral where he drove at speeds as fast as 100 miles an hour. He was spotted by an off-duty police officer who also noted that Wickman was swerving dangerously in and out of traffic and even off the shoulder of the road. The officer followed Wickman until Cape cops showed up.

In total, Wickman has 25 previous bookings in Lee County since 1989. In addition to the four convictions for being drunk behind the wheel, he’s also been busted for drugs, battery/domestic violence and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

He is 5’10”, 150 pounds and was last known to be living in Southeast Cape Coral.

CAPTURED: Your tips matter! Another Most Wanted Wednesday success story. Crime Stoppers let us know that after highlighting Joe McNeely last week, a call came in leading to his arrest.
