Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Ivorynia Bryant

Ivorynia Bryant (DOB 10/3/79) – wanted in Lee County for a bench warrant for burglary and grand theft. She is accused of hurling a cinderblock through the front window of a wig shop and stealing $2,000 in wigs and hair extensions, as well as cash from the register.

Shortly after the break-in, she was pulled over by police and when asked about all the wigs in the back seat of her car, Bryant had no explanation as to how all the fake hair got there.

After spending a short time in jail for the crime, she was released on the condition that she’d show back up for court, which she has subsequently failed to do. A new warrant for her arrest was issued in mid-December.

Over the years, she’s been booked 38 times before on charges of burglary, grand theft, drug, resisting, passing forged instruments, fraud and dealing in stolen property. She is 5’9”, 120 pounds, and was last known to be living in Tice. She could be using the alias of Tenesha Dennis.

Justin Shaeffer

Justin Shaeffer (DOB 7/14/95) – wanted in Lee County for violation of drug offender probation for resisting an officer with violence. His current warrant, which was issued in late November, stems from an incident where deputies responded to a domestic disturbance. When they encountered Shaeffer, they found him extremely combative and agitated.

Shaeffer ended up throwing punches at the deputies, which promptly landed him in handcuffs and under arrest. But even then, he continued to be mouthy and tried to resist arrest.

In total, he has 12 bookings on charges of battery, resisting, drugs, burglary, theft and lewd and lascivious behavior. He is 5’10”, 175 pounds and has a tattoo of a Chevrolet symbol on his chest, a pot leaf on his back and the letter K on his right hand.

Gregory Woods

Gregory Woods (DOB 11/17/92) – wanted in Collier County for violation of state probation for the possession of a controlled substance and providing a false ID to a law enforcement officer.

His local prior arrests include charges of the possession of amphetamines, fraud/impersonation, driving with a revoked license, as well as probation violations out of Hillsborough County for robbery/sudden snatching, fraudulent use of credit cards, and grand theft.

He was last known to be working as a construction laborer, with past employment with a decking company. He is 5’10”, 226 pounds, and could be traveling back and forth between Naples and Tampa to avoid arrest. He’s been on the run since mid-November and is known on the streets as “G Money.”

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.
