Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.

Mark Heighway

Mark Heighway (DOB 12/29/62) – wanted in Lee County for an order revoking pretrial supervision for DUI with property damage and driving with a permanently revoked license.

Deputies say Heighway was being drunk and disorderly at a beach bar and was asked to leave the premises. Instead of calling a rideshare, cab, or designated driver, he made the decision to drive away, but didn’t get far after almost immediately crashing into a guard rail.

A quick check of his license showed that Heighway had been convicted seven times before for DUI, and had three driver license suspensions on his record – the final one being in 2014 when the state of Florida revoked his license for the rest of his life.

Over the years, Heighway has been booked seven times locally and at this pace shows no signs of stopping now.

He is 5’10”, 180 pounds and was last known to be living on Fort Myers Beach.

Edward Hornung (DOB 1/15/79) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for 13 counts of trafficking in stolen property.

Detectives say Hornung collected brass flower vases from 55 graves, valued at close to $6,000, then sold them off for pennies on the dollar at a local scrap metal shop. Hornung was quickly identified and arrested for the crimes, and was eventually placed on probation.

Now, he’s in violation of those terms and is wanted on 13 separate counts of trafficking in stolen property. In addition to the gravesite thefts, Horning has also been booked for burglary, larceny-theft and dealing in stolen property.

He’s been jailed in both Lee and Charlotte counties and was last known to be living in Punta Gorda, working at an asphalt company.

Hornung is 6’1”, 210 pounds and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond in the Lee County Jail.

Alexander Quinones

Alexander Quinones (DOB 11/26/85) – wanted in Collier County on a bench warrant for failure to appear on a charge of online solicitation of a minor, one count of traveling to meet a minor and one count of seducing, soliciting or luring a child using a computer.

According to detectives, Quinones was initially charged with chatting on the internet with a Collier County girl named Kayla, who he thought was 11 years old.

Quinones made arrangements with the girl to meet up for a sexual encounter, however when he arrived at his destination, Quinones quickly found out that Kayla was actually an undercover investigator.

He was immediately charged with three counts of online solicitation of a minor, one count of traveling to meet a minor and one count of seducing, soliciting or luring a child using a computer or online service.

After being released from jail, he was expected to show back up in court – but instead, he ran from the charges against him.

Quinones is 5’9”, 180 pounds and may be trying to lay low in the Miami area.
