Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Robert Freeman

[CAPTURED] Robert Freeman (DOB 7/27/66) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation following his third DUI conviction.

This guy has been booked 44 times in Lee County, alone, with a list of other arrests in Indian River and Sumter Counties, as well as four times in the DOC for being a drug dealer.

On the list of his prior arrests are burglary, battery, threatening a public servant, hit and run, fleeing and eluding, resisting, forgery, domestic violence, theft, contempt and the three DUIs.

His current warrant stems from an incident when he was busted at 11 in the morning, heavily intoxicated in his car, while still holding a cold beer in his hand. Officers noted that he was so drunk that he couldn’t even get through the field sobriety tests. Freeman is a registered convicted felon, who is 6’2”, 220 pounds, with a tattoo of the name Leana on his neck. Freeman was last known to be living in Dunbar and has been on the run for the last two and a half weeks.

Ryan Craig Snyder

Ryan Craig Snyder (DOB 7/16/98) – wanted in Charlotte County on two felony failure to appear warrants, both with underlying charges of grand theft auto.

He also has pending charges for violation of probation for being out after curfew (one of the conditions of his probation).

He has a history of fleeing from law enforcement and was last known to be living in Englewood, although he often hangs out in the North Port area.

He is 6’1”, 237 pounds with full sleeve tattoos on both arms, each side of his neck and his stomach. Snyder is also known to have gang affiliations.

Francisco Sosa

Francisco Sosa (DOB 12/28/88) – wanted in Lee County on a bench warrant for failure to appear following an arrest for grand theft.

His current situation comes on the heels of him getting caught on surveillance cameras stealing tools from a big box store.

When Crime Stoppers put those photos out shortly after, they say they got a tip regarding his identity, which led to his arrest. But now, he’s on the run for not showing up for a court hearing following his release.

To date, he’s been booked 25 times locally since his first felony arrest at age 15. He’s also been sent to prison twice for a term of roughly eight years.

His rap sheet includes charges of theft, robbery, resisting, battery, home invasion robbery, fraud, the sale and delivery of drugs, dealing in stolen property and lots and lots of burglaries.

Sosa is a registered convicted felon who is 5’9”, 185 pounds, with tattoos of “Sosa Loyalty” on his chest and “Royalty Hot Boy” on his right arm. He could be using the alias of Packi Sosa or Sisco Sosa. Records show he was last known to be living in North Fort Myers.
