Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
Efren Berumen’s name first popped up in October as part of “Operation 13 Tiers,” a massive drug-trafficking bust that resulted in the arrest of 25 others.
Berumen is the final fugitive still on the run.
He is wanted in Hendry County but detectives say he is likely moving around between Tampa, Orlando in Miami.
He’s also believed to have Southwest Florida connections.
Justin Holifield’s case also has a drug connection.
He’s wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for DUI, the possession of a controlled substance and a felon in possession of a weapon.
Detectives say his current warrant stems from him passing out behind the wheel due to a fentanyl overdose.
Look for him in Central Fort Myers.
John Perry is wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for grand theft.
He has an extensive history of stealing from local stores and from friends.
He’s got tattoos including the phrase “death before dishonor” and a red cross.
Detectives think we may be couch-hopping in Fort Myers to avoid going back to jail.
