BCSO Fugitive of the Week arrested
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier this afternoon, members of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit arrested last week’s featured Wheel Target, Christopher Senft after multiple tips were received from citizens following last week’s “Wheel of Fugitive” episode.
The Fugitive Unit received multiple tips from the community which led our Agents to a hotel room in the Palm Bay area where Senft was reportedly hiding to avoid arrest. While on surveillance, Fugitive Agents observed Senft exiting a hotel room and jumping into the trunk of a hatchback vehicle which had arrived in the area to pick him up.
Senft was subsequently taken into custody without incident and admitted that he was aware that there was a warrant for his arrest warrant so he had been actively hiding to avoid being arrested.
Senft later stated that he knew he was done for when he saw the Wheel, as the Fugitive Unit was going to find him because he was on our original Fugitive Hunt show, Turn Em’ In Tuesday once before and the citizens turned him in then as well!
Senft was transported to the Brevard County Jail on a felony warrant for Violation of Community Control Reference Burglary of Dwelling and Grand Theft, with a Bond of $7,000.
So I guess the moral of the story is if your going to do crime in Brevard County don’t appear on Turn Em’ In Tuesday or the “Wheel of Fugitive” and don’t try to hide in a hatchback unless you want to find yourself in our jail!
Another great job by our citizens and Fugitive Unit who work together every day to get fugitives off our streets!
