Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
Hector Rosario (DOB 4/10/86) – Wanted in Lee County for violation of probation following an arrest for burglary and theft (third conviction). Although he has a very lengthy criminal history, his current warrant stems from an incident where he rode his bicycle to a Fort Myers auto repair shop. When he saw that employees were all busy, he grabbed a large welding machine from the garage area. A few blocks away, he sold the stolen machinery for a mere $50 so that he could purchase narcotics. Less than 16 hours later, Rosario found himself in a jail cell for the theft.
To date, he’s been booked 23 times on charges of burglary, theft, dealing in stolen property, battery, fraud, resisting and lots of drug charges, including the sale and delivery of heroin, cocaine and meth. He’s also been sent to prison once on drug charges.
He is 5’10”, 185 pounds, with a tattoo of the Statue of Liberty and praying hands on his left arm. Upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.
Guerry Voltaire (DOB 2/11/73) – Wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for leaving the scene of a crash causing serious injuries. He’s been on the run since late December.
His current legal problems started when he was driving at night in Lehigh Acres with no lights on. As he drove across a busy intersection, he caused two cars to collide, causing severe injuries to the drivers and passengers. But instead of staying on the scene, as the law requires, Voltaire chose to take off. Fortunately, with the help of witnesses on scene, K-9 officers were able to quickly track Voltaire down and charge him with hit and run. Additionally, it turned out that he was also driving with an Ontario driver’s license that expired three years before.
He is 6’1”, 170 pounds and was last known to be living in Lehigh Acres.
Brian Welch (DOB 9/21/90) – Wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for burglary, 5 counts of grand theft of a firearm and illegal weapons possession.
According to detectives, Welch broke into a Cape Coral home and ransacked the place before stealing five pistols, a shotgun, money and various collectibles. Fortunately, he left his fingerprints in the house, which allowed Cape cops to quickly link Welch to the crime. This incident, combined with his extensive criminal past, led to Welch being sentenced to prison for 10 years. He’s only been a free man for about a year, and already he’s back in trouble with the law.
He’s got 13 previous bookings to his name, on charges that include armed robbery at age 16, drugs, resisting, fraud, burglary, grand theft and the possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
He is 5’5”, 149 pounds, and could be using the alias of Jason Matthews. 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.
