BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Tuesday afternoon, agents from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit arrested Bruce Mims, who was a featured target on a “Wheel of Fugitive®️” episode that aired back in January.

Subsequent to the airing of the show, Agents from our Fugitive Unit began to receive tips of various locations where Mims was known to frequent.

The information pointed agents in the right direction and after additional investigation, Agents were able to track down a location where Mims was residing in Indialantic.

Several days ago Mims fled from Fugitive Agents in a vehicle and was able to get away. However, our Agents, who never quit, went back to the location this afternoon and locked down the residence.

After a perimeter was established, Mims attempted to sneak out a back porch balcony but was quickly met by Agents who gladly gave him a hand off the balcony and into a pair of handcuffs that had his name on them.

Mims’ warrants have been active since October 2018 and during that entire time he made no efforts to turn himself in.

In addition, charges for fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest without violence, habitual traffic offender and on-site Violation of Probation.

This arrest is another perfect example of what happens when citizens and Law Enforcement work closely together to protect our community!!
