BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week was another busy week for our Fugitive Unit and our citizens who partner with us to get fugitives off our streets and behind bars where they can’t victimize anyone else.

Through some great investigative work by our Agents and help from our citizens, two more “Wheel of Fugitive” suspects are now behind bars at the Brevard County Jail.

The first is Stephen Dukeman who had been selected as the “Fugitive of the Week” on this week’s episode of “Wheel of Fugitive.”

After being selected as this week’s target, Dukeman quickly found out that he was on the wheel and even had the episode shared on his own personal Facebook Page.

Dukeman boldly bragged to his friends and family that our Fugitive Agents couldn’t catch him, unfortunately through he was wrong, as our Agents subsequently located him Thursday in the parking lot of a local business, where he was taken into custody without incident.

Dukeman admitted to our Fugitive Agents that he knew he was wanted, that he was on the “Wheel of Fugitive” and that he was just days away from leaving town and heading to the keys.

While he won’t be enjoying the beautiful Florida Keys, thanks to our Fugitive Agents, he is now enjoying a nice steel cell with a view of his cell mates. Dukeman was detained in the Brevard County Jail for Violation of Probation Reference Possession of Cocaine on a No Bond status.

Our second Fugitive to take the ride this week was Clarissa Schranz who was a “Wheel of Fugitive” target from January.

Schranz who had been in the hospital under a fake name was captured by our Fugitive Agents after a citizen gave an anonymous tip about her location and fake name.

Our Fugitive Unit worked closely with Hospital Security to coordinate Schranz’s arrest as she was walking out of the hospital. At the time of her arrest, Schranz confessed to our Agents that multiple family members and associates had notified her that she was on the “Wheel of Fugitive” and that she had even watched the video herself.

Schranz also confessed that she was not interested in going back to jail and that she had purchased a plane ticket under a fake name so she could leave the state in order to avoid arrest.

I hope it was a refundable ticket cause if not she is going to be really disappointed. Schranz was detained in the Brevard County Jail on No Bond for Violation of Probation Reference Burglary of a Dwelling Or Occupied Conveyance and for Violation of Probation Reference False Statement To An Insurance Company.

When will these Fugitives learn that if you are on the “Wheel” the only trip you are getting is a free trip to the Brevard County Jail Resort because our citizens and our Fugitive Unit never take a vacation!
