BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This week has been another great week for the “Wheel Of Fugitive” and a not so great week for the “Wheel of Fugitive” suspects.

Between citizens calling in about the location of suspects and good old fashion police work, fugitives in Brevard County are finding it harder and harder to stay out of jail.

To start the week off, Curtis Zopp who was picked as the Fugitive of the Week on “Wheel of Fugitive” in early June was taken in to custody in Clay County Florida after a citizen alerted the Clay County Sheriff’s Office of his whereabouts. Zopp had left Brevard County and was hiding in Clay County but has now learned that the long arm of the law truly reaches across county lines.

To make the week even better, early this morning officers from the Palm Bay Police Department took into custody this week’s “Wheel of Fugitive” suspect, Alec Zayed who was wanted on a warrant for Violation of Probation on charges of Burglary of a Structure and DUI with Property Damage.

Zayed was arrested after Palm Bay Police responded to a call reference a possible drug overdose.

When they arrived at the residence Zayed was present in the home where the overdose occurred and was taken into custody after Palm Bay Police confirmed his warrant.

Zayed was subsequently transported to the beautiful Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Jail where he was held on No Bond status as instructed by the warrant.
