BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Members of our Fugitive Unit located and arrested Peter Louis Rivera who was listed as this week’s “Fugitive of the Week.”

Rivera was taken into custody at a residence in the Palm Bay area without incident after he was observed trying to sneak out of the residence and into a waiting vehicle.

Rivera claimed that he was aware that he was wanted however he did not know he was listed as the Turn ‘Em In Tuesday Fugitive of the Week by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. Rivera stated to our Agents “I knew I had a warrant and was trying to elude law enforcement.

I am glad you found me cause at least now I can get a good night sleep.” Rivera further advised that he has not been sleeping much because of not knowing when he was going to be caught.

The good news is that the Brevard County Jail has vacancy so he can enjoy a nice bunk inside the Gray Bar Hotel.

While no leads were generated as a result of this week’s Turn ‘Em In Tuesday our Fugitive Unit did a great job at tracking him down and bringing him to justice.

Thank you for helping us keep our community safe.
