BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – One of the fugitives on last week’s “Wheel of Fugitive” episode, Donald R. Huff did the right thing by turning himself into the Brevard County Jail.

Huff, who was one of the 10 fugitives on the wheel had observed himself on last week’s episode and decided to do the right thing so he could get his criminal charges behind him. Even though Huff was not selected as the “Fugitive of the Week” he knew that our citizens and Fugitive Unit would be knocking on his door soon enough.

On Friday, June 23, our Communication Center received an anonymous tip about a location where Huff might be located, however no one was found at the residence by our Deputies.

Later that same evening Huff turned himself in at the Brevard County Jail in an effort to avoid arrest and to get his criminal charges behind him.

I would like to personally commend Mr. Huff for not only doing the right thing but for also trying to get his life back on track. It takes a strong person to take that type of initiative and to take the first step in trying to right a wrong.
