BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA– On Tuesday, our Fugitive Unit arrested last week’s featured “Wheel of Fugitive” target Jeremey Broughton, who had two active felony Violation of Probation Warrants for Possession of Meth, Obstructing Criminal Investigation and Battery Upon a Person 65 or Older.
The arrest occurred after our Fugitive Unit received multiple tips on different locations of Broughton’s potential whereabouts and an additional subsequent tip that Broughton was staying in an apartment complex in Melbourne.
Agents were able to investigate the tip concerning the apartment complex and narrowed down an exact unit number. After conducting a brief surveillance, Agents received confirmation that Broughton was inside and a short time later he was taken into custody without incident.
Broughton admitted to knowing he was on the “Wheel of Fugitive” and to being made aware of it by literally everyone he knows. Broughton stated he was not planning on turning himself in anytime soon because he does not want to go back to prison.
Apparently Mr. Broughton failed to realize that once you are on the “Wheel of Fugitive” you don’t get to decide if you go back to jail, you just get to decide if you are gonna “Man Up” and do the right thing or try to hide from 600,000 citizens and the most aggressive Fugitive Unit in the country.
Another great job by our Fugitive Unit and their 600,000 Brevard County partners.
