BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA– Earlier this week, Agents from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit arrested Tory Huffstutler who was picked as the Fugitive of the Week on the March 13th episode of “Wheel of Fugitive,” and his girlfriend, Taylor Mathias.
Through various investigative leads Agents were able to locate an apartment complex Huffstutler was living in that was located in Merritt Island.
After arriving in the area of the complex, Agents received an additional tip from a citizen who was able to provide the exact unit number where Huffstutler was hiding to avoid arrest.
In addition, while researching Huffstutler’s information, our Agents determined that his girlfriend, Taylor Mathias had an active felony warrant for Violation of Community Control and was also known to reside at the same apartment.
Based upon the information that had been developed, the Agents approached the Apartment and subsequently took both Huffstutler and Mathias into custody without incident.

Pursuant to their arrests both subjects admitted to knowing they had active warrants for their arrest but admittedly, neither had taken any action to surrender themselves.
As a result of their arrests, Huffstutler was transported to the Brevard County Jail on charges of Violation of Community Control Reference Sale or Delivery of Heroin.
Mathias was incarcerated on an active warrant for Violation of Community Control Reference Grand Theft Over $300.00 But Less Than $20,000. Both subjects were being held on a No Bond Status.
Since our Fugitive Unit got a two for one fugitive special they gave both defendants a coupon for a “free cell upgrade” that includes a better view of the fence line, one hour access to the Exercise Yard, and free security during their stay.
These arrests are another great example of what happens when citizens and Law Enforcement work together to keep our community safe.
