Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
Joshua Carr (DOB 1/15/94) – wanted in Lee County on a warrant revoking pretrial supervision for trafficking in cocaine.
His latest legal problems started when he was pulled over for a traffic infraction, however, officers noticed cocaine and paraphernalia scattered throughout the car. Crime Stoppers said Carr even had a baggie of crack cocaine rocks hidden in the gas cap for the fuel tank.
When questioned by officers, Carr said the drugs weren’t his, nor was the crack pipe they found in his pants pocket. He was sent to jail that night and released on certain conditions, which he has since violated, triggering a new warrant for his arrest.
To date, he has 14 bookings on drugs charges, battery, theft, hit and run, DUI and domestic violence by strangulation. He has a history of violent tendencies, particularly towards women.
He is 5’8”, 130 pounds, with a tattoo of the words “chasing perfection” on his left arm and the Superman symbol on his chest.
Cristiano Maurici (DOB 10/22/92) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for the possession of cocaine, driving under the influence and driving without a license.
He was caught driving at a high rate of speed at 1 a.m. in Cape Coral when officers pulled him over.
They immediately noticed that he reeked of booze, which prompted them to conduct a series of field sobriety tests which he failed. He ended up blowing well above the legal limit and had open beers in his car, coupled with a baggie of cocaine.
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the average person arrested for DUI has likely driven drunk nearly 80 times before their first arrest, so chances are pretty good that this wasn’t his first incident.
He is 5’11”, 175 pounds and was last known to be living in central Fort Myers. And upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.
Rolando Quintana, Jr. (DOB 5/4/86) – wanted in Collier County for violation of state probation for grand theft auto, fleeing and eluding officers, petit theft and two counts of battery.
Quintana has also been accused of leading police on a high-speed chase after stealing a Mercedes Benz from a Naples car wash, which he also did despite the fact that his driver’s license had been revoked since 2008.
He also been arrested for grand theft, resistig, aggravated battery, grand theft of a firearm and fraud in his six bookings in Collier County. He’s also been jailed for shooting a family member during the heat of an argument, then barricading himself in the house.
He’s been sent to prison four times for roughly seven years, with his last release being just a few months ago. He is 5’7”, 180 pounds and was last known to be living in Golden Gate Estates.
