BCSO Fugitive of the Week Arrested After Interesting Response, Says Sheriff
By Wayne Ivey, Brevard Sheriff // September 16, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Wednesday afternoon Fugitive Agents from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kimberly Isenbletter who had been selected as this week’s Fugitive of the Week on Wheel of Fugitive.
Isenbletter was observed at an apartment complex in Merritt Island when she came outside to smoke a cigarette. BCSO Fugitive Agents approached the apartment and subsequently took Isenbletter into custody without incident.
Isenbletter admitted to knowing she was a fugitive but denied knowing that she was the Fugitive of the Week on Wheel of Fugitive.
Ironically though, everyone else inside the apartment knew she was the Fugitive of the Week but magically she didn’t know.
The good news though is that Isenbletter told our agents that she had planned to turn herself in after dinner.
While I find that hard to believe I can only assume she has heard how horrible the food is at the Brevard County Jail and wanted one last good meal before she turned herself in!
Either way though I have counseled the members of our Fugitive Unit and instructed them to be more considerate in the future and not arrest people before they have dinner.
Okay your right…I didn’t tell them that!
