BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Marcus Hilbert, who was this week’s “Turn ‘Em In Tuesday” Fugitive, did the right thing by turning himself in to our Fugitive Agents on Monday at about 1:30 p.m.

Hilbert knew he was wanted after family members made him aware he was the Fugitive of the Week, and reached out to our Fugitive Agents so he could turn himself in.

I applaud Mr. Hilbert for doing the right thing, and for taking the first step toward bringing closure to this issue while trying to get his life back on the right path.

Conversely, on Monday around 3 p.m., our Fugitive Agents finally caught up with Shayne Sylvester who was the “Turn ‘Em In Tuesday” Fugitive from July 21st.

Sylvester had been avoiding arrest, but an anonymous tip from a citizen disclosed where he was hiding at a residence in Canaveral Groves.

Sylvester was also in possession of a firearm at the time of his arrest, which brought on additional charges. Sylvester knew he was wanted from Facebook and decided he was going to try and avoid arrest.
