Here are Southwest Florida Crime Stopper’s three most-wanted fugitives for 2020.
Troy Bolin (DOB 8/25/60) – Wanted in Lee County for sexual battery on a child under 12 years of age.
Bolin was first arrested in 2005 for sexual assault on a teenager. Shortly before he was released from jail, a second victim came forward and told a trusted adult that she, too, had been raped repeatedly by Bolin starting when she was 7 years old.
When those charges came to light, Bolin bolted and hasn’t been seen since. Bolin was living in Lehigh Acres when these accusations came to light.
He frequently held Bible study with neighborhood kids, but behind closed doors, Bolin was accused of doing heinous acts.
Crime Stoppers says, “Family members in Georgia claim they haven’t seen Bolin in years, but we’re confident they’re being less than truthful and that he’s out there somewhere – and all we need is that one tip to hold him accountable for his actions.”
Rosalia Tejeda Diaz (DOB 11/26/67) – Wanted in Lee County for leaving the scene of a crash involving a death.
A warrant for the arrest of Rosalia Tejeda Diaz was issued just days after the incident that left Kate Johnson and her dog Diva deceased along McGregor Boulevard back in January of this year.
Johnson was taking her dog for a walk along McGregor around 10 p.m. on Jan. 22 when she was struck by a car driving northbound. Rather than do the right thing and stay on scene, Diaz made the conscious decision to leave Johnson on the side of the road without a single attempt to render aid or call 911.
Diaz has been on the run since the crash and troopers are hoping to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard from her.
Upon her arrest, Diaz will be charged with hit and run involving a death, which is punishable in the state of Florida by up to 30 years in prison.
Bryan Vega Martinez (DOB 1/22/92) – Wanted in Lee County for violation of community control for willful child abuse.
This North Fort Myers resident was caring for a 14-month-old baby who woke up crying at 5:30 in the morning.
Vega Martinez went to tend to the baby and seemingly soothed the infant back to sleep. However a few hours later, a family member noticed significant redness and bruising on the child.
When questioned about the injuries, Vega Martinez admitted to hitting the infant in the face in an attempt to calm him down. That violent method landed him in jail for three days, and now he’s violated the probation that followed that arrest.
In addition to the child abuse charge, he has also been jailed for several counts of drug possession. He is 5’11”, 175 pounds and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.
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.
