A 22-year-old Ocala man wanted for armed robbery is in Collier County Jail after leading deputies in a pursuit in Golden Gate that ended on I-75, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

Marquee Deshuan William, of Ocala, is accused of fleeing and eluding police, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, failure to register as a convicted felon, driving on a suspended/revoked license and possession of marijuana and narcotic paraphernalia, the sheriff’s office said.

At around 9 p.m., authorities attempted to pull over a white Nissan Altima with no headlights on traveling east on Dudley Drive. Deputies say the vehicle was driven by William, who drove into a nearby parking lot. William jumped out of the moving vehicle, leaving it to crash into dumpsters before jumping a fence and running toward the interstate.

He was quickly caught. Deputies found more than $6,000 on him as well as marijuana in the center console of his vehicle and 9MM bullets in the glove compartment.

William was wanted on an outstanding warrant from Marion County where authorities say he is responsible for an armed robbery. In Lee County, he has an outstanding warrant for failing to appear on a driving with a suspended/revoked license.
