BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Desmond Gerard Bell who was this week’s “Fugitive of the Week” turned himself in to his Probation Officer after learning from family members that he was wanted.

The family members were previously contacted by our Fugitive Unit and subsequently encouraged Bell to do the right thing.

As always I want to commend Mr. Bell for doing the right thing and for taking the first step in closing this chapter of his life.

I also want to encourage anyone who has an active warrant to turn themselves in so the process can take its course and they can then move on in their lives.
