BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Late last week members of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit captured Desmond Bell who was the Fugitive of the Week from March 22.

Bell was located at a residence in the Palm Bay area and was taken into custody by members of our Fugitive Unit after an extended surveillance revealed that he was inside the home.

He admitted that he knew he was a participant on the “Wheel Of Fugitive” and had actually watched the show himself when he was selected.

Bell also informed our agents that both family and friends had reached out to him to encourage him to turn himself in, which he was planning to do.

So the moral of the story is…when you see yourself being selected on the “Wheel Of Fugitive, turn yourself in, when your family and friends encourage you to do the right thing, do the right thing, and to avoid being a participant on the “Wheel Of Fugitive” always do the right thing.

Another great job by our Fugitive Unit and our citizens who are actively helping us keep Brevard County a great place to call home.
