Here are three fugitives, and one vehicle with unknown suspects inside, wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
[CAPTURED] Eddie Veilleux (DOB 2/17/67) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation on two counts of grand theft auto and trafficking in stolen property.
He was asked to house sit for a friend, and watch his dog and do some light housework while the victim was out of town. When he returned, two of his vehicles were missing, as well as a gun, cash, and two flat-screen television sets.
The cars were later found to be abandoned and Veilleux was arrested for the thefts. Because of his criminal history, he ended up spending two and a half years in prison for the thefts, and was released on September 1 – and he is already in violation of the probation he was placed on.
He’s been sentenced to prison nine times since 1989 in Pinellas, Duval and Brevard Counties for the sale and delivery of cocaine, grand theft, burglary, escape and fraud. He is 5’8”, 155 pounds and could be using the alias of Alfred Smith
Brittney Sarosy (DOB 8/3/94) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation on two counts of the sale/delivery and manufacturing of cocaine.
According to detectives, Sarosy worked in tandem with a drug supplier and would frequently meet up with buyers in search of crack cocaine. She was eventually arrested for her role in the drug deals, and was subsequently placed on probation in hopes that she’d turn her life around.
Sarosy has failed to do that, and now she’s a woman on the run. Sarosy was last known to be hotel hopping in the Palm Beach Boulevard area and is likely still hiding out in that part of town.
She is 5’2”, 170 pounds and has a collection of tattoos, including the words King Ricco on her chest, King Alex on her left leg, the name Noah on her right arm and Ms. Rodriguez on her left arm. And upon her arrest, Sarosy will be held without bond.
Alan Thompson (DOB 5/5/52) – wanted in Lee County for failing to register as a sexual offender. Thompson was convicted for lewd and lascivious exhibition after he chose to drink a beer and sit naked in a lawn chair in front of his garage.
When a 12-year-old girl came roller skating by the front of his house, deputies say Thompson intentionally showed his private parts to the young girl, who quickly ran back to her grandmother’s house to report the repulsive behavior.
When the grandma went back to check, Thompson was still in the driveway, naked. He ended up spending six months in the Lee County Jail for that crime, followed up by another year and a half in prison for failing to keep tabs with law enforcement.
Thompson was just released in late July and has yet to tell police where he’s staying. Thompson is 5’10”, 120 pounds and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.
The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is still searching for a vehicle suspected of being involved in a recent theft of nearly $100,000 worth of copper pipes.
According to the sheriff’s office, a driver in a pickup truck pulling a trailer was caught on camera by a nearby business after stealing a trailer-load of copper pipes from the WINK transmitter site in Charlotte County.
The theft happened overnight at the site between July 23 and 24 on State Road 31, just north of Cook Brown Road.
After cutting a gate, the thieves loaded up 62 copper pipes that were 25 feet in length and weighed about 100 lbs. each.
The suspect vehicle is being identified as an early 2000s blue Dodge Dakota.
Thieves also stole 12,000 feet of copper wire from streetlight control boxes on SR-82 near Columbus Boulevard in Lehigh Acres between August 3 and August 7. That copper is valued at $30,000. If you have information on this crime, you can call Crime Stoppers at the number below. You may be eligible for an additional $1,000 reward.
If you have a tip on the whereabouts of any of these wanted suspects contact Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers. All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
