By Wayne Ivey, Brevard Sheriff // June 28, 2019
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Deputy Adam Steuerwald and Deputy Caleb Pinkham while working traffic enforcement on Wednesday in the area of I-95 and Fiske Blvd stopped a vehicle for traffic violations that ended up being occupied by this past week’s “Fishing For Fugitives™️” target Rhonda L. Patton.
Patton, who was a passenger in the vehicle quickly admitted to the Deputies that she was on “Fishing For Fugitives™️” and as usual stated she was about to go turn herself in.
The very kind Deputies told her they were headed to the jail anyway so they would save her the trouble and give her a ride.
Patton was subsequently booked into the Brevard County Jail by Deputy Pinkham as Deputy Steuerwald doesn’t have a fishing license!!
Patton was arrested pursuant to the instructions of the warrant for Failure To Appear Reference Possession of Heroin with a bond of $5,000.
Great Job Guys!
