Here are three suspects wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Aaron Ormston

Aaron Ormston (DOB 8/14/92) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation – criminal mischief with property damage.

Deputies say this charge stems from an incident where he was driving drunk at more than twice the legal limit and caused two crashes which resulted in significant damage. To add insult to injury, the car he was driving was reported as stolen just a few days before. He spent seven months in the Lee County Jail after the incident and was placed on probation upon his release, but last week, he fell out of compliance and now has a brand new warrant for his arrest.

He has nine prior bookings on charges of burglary, grand theft, fraud and dealing in stolen property. He has also spent two and a half years in the state prison system for burglary and theft charges.

He is 6’3”, 180 pounds and was last known to be living close to the downtown Fort Myers area. Upon his arrest, he’ll be held without bond.

Timothy Rinehart

Timothy Rinehart (DOB 2/8/79) – wanted in Lee County for grand theft.

He is accused of breaking into the business of his former employer after hours and stealing more than $2,500 in equipment.

Deputies say Rinehart has logged 19 prior arrests in Lee County over the years, with his first felony at age 17 for burglary and forgery. As an adult, he’s been jailed for quite a few drug-related charges, battery, resisting, contempt, the fraudulent use of credit cards, grand theft and burglary. He also has previous arrests in Alachua County for trafficking cocaine, which ultimately landed him in the custody of the Department of Corrections.

He is 6’1”, 185 pounds.

David Ford

David Ford (DOB 8/19/79) – wanted in Lee County for possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia.

Ford could definitely be called a repeat offender with 50 previous local bookings on his rap sheet. Deputies say he has dozens of drug-related arrests, as well as priors for resisting, fleeing and eluding, hit and run, battery/domestic violence, burglary, fraud and the possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He was released two months ago after serving time for grand theft auto. In addition to his local time behind bars, he has also been jailed in Manatee County and has been sent to prison three times on drug-related charges for a total of about seven years.

He is 5’10”, 180 pounds, with lots of tattoos on both arms, his shoulders, neck and back. He’s been known to use the alias of Tony Jones.
