A Collier County Sheriff’s Office drone helped deputies locate a fleeing convicted felon who had pointed a gun at a woman during a domestic disturbance in Golden Gate on Monday.

Jabaree Marquese Miller, 26, of Golden Gate, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill. He was also charged with a Lee County warrant for failure to appear for driving  with a suspended or revoked license.

Reports say Miller and the victim were in an argument outside a home on 27th Place Southwest on Monday morning. Miller followed the victim into their bedroom, then aimed a handgun at her and said, “Today is the day,” and, “All I need is one bullet.” He then placed the handgun under a mattress and fled the residence.

CCSO drones were deployed, and one of the drones spotted Miller hiding behind a dumpster on the 5200 block of Golden Gate Parkway. With information provided to them by the drone operator, deputies arrived and took Miller into custody. Deputies located a handgun under the mattress in the bedroom.

Miller has an extensive criminal history in Collier County. He was out on bond stemming from his Jan. 27 arrest on multiple drug charges including fentanyl trafficking and cocaine trafficking.

The investigation is ongoing.
