Here are three suspects wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Larry Bowman

Larry Bowman (DOB 7/10/81) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation on an original charge of burglary.

According to his arrest report, Bowman broke into a car at a local business, stealing thousands of dollars with of electronics and personal items.

A witnessed saw the crime in progress and wrote down the license plate number of his car and quickly called it into police. Because of that, deputies were able to catch up to Bowman in quick fashion and arrest him for the break-in.

That charge ended up being the final straw for Bowman, who had an extensive criminal history and, in fact, had only been released from prison four months prior. That charge landed him back in prison for five years, which was on top of his previous time in state lock-up for 18 years total, on previous charges of burglary, grand theft auto and the sale and delivery of cocaine in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

Bowman is 6’1”, 185 pounds, and could be using the aliases of Cordell Mackey, Corey Bowman or Corey Brigith.

Zachary Gray Kelly

Zachary Gray Kelly (DOB 2/20/97) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation on charges of burglary and grand theft.

He was found guilty of breaking into his employer’s business after-hours and stealing, among other things, a large generator, gas cans, and pallets of wood.

He then loaded up a friend’s truck and brought all the stolen goods to Sanibel Island for a bonfire party. After all the fun was over, Gray Kelly ditched the generator and never bothered to show back up for work.

He has previous addresses of record in Lehigh, although could be living in the Estero area, near FGCU.

He is 5’9”, 180 pounds and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.

Shamichael River

Shamichael Rivers (DOB 9/6/84) – wanted for violation of community control in Lee County for two counts of possessing 10 or more forged notes.

This charge stems from an incident when he got pulled over on I-75 for doing more than 20 miles an hour over the speed limit.

A search of his car turned up a bag filled with counterfeit $50 bills. Detectives say the bills all had the same serial numbers and were missing several obvious security features.

Rivers ended up fessing up to the crime and said that he printed up the fake money on his home computer using supplies he purchased at a local office goods store.

Prior to this incident, Rivers had been jailed in Seminole County for the exact same crime. After serving time behind bars for the crime, he was released on community supervision, and earlier this month, he violated those terms – he’s been on the run now since September 2.

Rivers is 6’2”, 155 pounds and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.

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.
