Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Dion Barnes, 32, is wanted in Collier County for the possession of a firearm or concealed weapon by a convicted felon.

Investigators said one of his latest arrests came after a SWAT team did a search of his home and found pot, LSD, psychedelic mushrooms and illegal weapons. Barnes did prison time, and now, a year or so after his release, he is in trouble again.

Look for him in Golden Gate Estates, Immokalee or North Naples. He has a very noticeable height of 6 feet, 6 inches tall.

John Demaree, 52, is wanted for violating his probation for grand theft, fraudulent use of personal identification and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Demaree was busted for using someone else’s credit cards without their permission. Look for him in north Cape Coral.

Rigoberto Ortiz Leon, 36, violated his probation in early May for DUI and causing a crash with serious injuries.

He crashed into another car, injuring the other driver, and left. Officers caught up to him a short distance away.

Leon has several aliases: Raul Lopez, Carlos Gonzalez and Francisco Aguilar.
