By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // April 29, 2020
'Brevard County Justice' debuted last week on BCSO's Facebook Page
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week, our agency aired the first episode of “Brevard County Justice” and it already landed two thugs right where they belong, in the Brevard County Jail.
One of the unsolved cases shown in the first episode was where we asked our citizens to help us identify the suspects in a fraud case that targeted a 74- year-old female victim who reported numerous fraudulent transactions on her bank account.
The transactions included ATM withdraws where her pin was used as during the same time frame the victim had had also reported her wallet and debit card as being stolen.
The victim’s card was subsequently used at the Cumberland Farm’s Store on the corner of Babcock Street and Palm Bay Road where security cameras captured excellent surveillance photos of a male and female suspect who used the victim’s debit card.

BREVARD COUNTY SHERIFF WAYNE IVEY: This past week, our agency aired the first episode of “Brevard County Justice” and it already landed two thugs right where they belong, in the Brevard County Jail.
Pursuant to last week’s airing of “Brevard County Justice” where the suspect’s photos were highlighted, Agent Randy Truitt of our South Precinct General Crimes Unit received a Crimeline Tip in reference to the identities of the two unknown suspects.
The Crimeline Tip identified the female as Rebekah Blackburn, which eventually led to identifying the male subject as Joseph Carlucci.
On April 24, Agent Truitt and Agent Samantha Grimes responded to 1400 block of Baytree Drive in Palm Bay in an effort to make contact with both Carlucci and Blackburn.
Agent Truitt spoke with both suspects who subsequently identified themselves in the video and still images.
As a result of the tip that was provided by one of our citizens Agent Truitt and Agent Grimes arrested 30-year-old Rebekah Blackburn, and 32-year-old Joseph Carlucci, on two counts of Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card.
This case is another perfect example of what happens when citizens and Law Enforcement work closely together to keep their community safe!!
Remember…there is no better form of justice than “Brevard County Justice” where criminals get stuffed and cuffed and the rights of victims come first!
