TALLAHASSEE, FL – Attorney General Bill McCollum today launched a new website featuring most wanted fugitives being pursued by the Attorney General’s law enforcement officers. The website will highlight dangerous criminals on a nationwide level and will have information provided by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Control Fraud Unit, Office of Statewide Prosecution and CyberCrime Unit.
“Sometimes the most valuable information provided to our law enforcement comes from concerned citizens within our communities,” said Attorney General McCollum. “With the help of this website and its viewers, dangerous criminals with serious charges can be located and brought to justice quickly.”
The website will feature suspects and convicted criminals who are wanted on serious charges including drug trafficking, cybercrime, organized criminal activity, racketeering, and failing to appear for sentencing after conviction or plea agreement. Each fugitive listing will include an informational summary of the individual’s charges and potential threat as well as an option to access a full-page profile with additional details such as the fugitive’s last known whereabouts or any known aliases.
Information on reporting tips to local law enforcement and local Crime Stoppers organizations will be available on the website. Viewers can also access the tip line contact information by clicking on the ‘View all’ link on the Crime Stoppers Tip Line page. Citizens are advised to refrain from taking any action to apprehend the individuals and to report all information about potential whereabouts to law enforcement.
