BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier today members of our Fugitive Unit arrested Brittney Parkhurst, who was this week’s “Fugitive of the Week.”

Parkhurst who was the winning contestant on last night’s episode of “Wheel of Fugitive,” was taken into custody after our agency received numerous tips about her whereabouts from citizens who had observed her being selected on “Wheel of Fugitive.”

The first tip from our citizens about Parkhurst’s location actually came in within 2 hours of the episode being posted on our agency FaceBook Page.

At the time of her arrest, the occupants of the home attempted to conceal the fact that Parkhurst was hidden inside.

Agents from our Fugitive Unit eventually confirmed that she was present in the home at which time she was taken into custody without further incident.

This is another great example of what happens when our Brevard County Citizen’s Task Force works hand in hand with Law Enforcement to take criminals off our streets!
