Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
Demetrie Allen (DOB 8/13/91) – wanted in Lee County on a bench warrant for failure to appear on a charge of burglary and criminal mischief.
He is accused of trying to break into a car in a Lehigh Acres neighborhood in the middle of the night. When he was unsuccessful, he busted down the front door of the home, then assaulted the homeowner.
He was arrested a short time later for the crime and was released on the condition that he would show back up for a court hearing, which he has failed to do, triggering a new warrant for his arrest that was issued December 1st.
Over the years, he’s been booked 20 times on a long list of charges, to include hit and run, fraud, aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, dealing in stolen property, fleeing and eluding, robbery and the sale and delivery of drugs.
He is 6’4”, 180 pounds with a tattoo of Chinese letters on his left arm and a zodiac sign on his neck. He was last known to be living in Lehigh and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.
Kameron Maynard (DOB 12/5/92) – wanted in Lee County on an order revoking pretrial supervision for burglary with assault or battery, child abuse and false imprisonment.
The victim said she had been having ongoing issues with Maynard, including several instances on the day of his latest attack.
Despite the fact that she had a domestic violence injunction for protection against Maynard, he ended up climbing up the outside balcony to her apartment then assaulted the woman while young children were nearby.
He also threatened to “light up” her apartment. He ended up spending four days in the Lee County Jail for the crime and was released in late August on bond. But a judge has decided that Maynard needs to be in jail and has issued a warrant rescinding his release. He has three previous bookings on drug charges.
He is 5’9”, 180 pounds and was last known to be living in Southeast Cape Coral.
Ronald Smith (DOB 7/7/63) – wanted in Lee County for failure to register as a sexual offender. He was originally convicted in Glades County on a sexual battery charge and after serving a lengthy stint in prison, he was released on the condition that he would check in with law enforcement on a regular basis.
His last check-in was in July, when he affirmed that he would keep tabs again in October, however, he has been off the radar and nowhere to be found, prompting a new warrant for his arrest earlier this month.
Crime Stoppers said Smith has a history of violent tendencies, particularly towards women, and in his last assault he left the female victim bloodied and bruised with her eyes swollen shut.
He has 11 previous bookings on multiple counts of battery, domestic violence by strangulation and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
He is 5’11”, 248 pounds with a tattoo of the devil with flames on his chest, a panther on his right hand, the map of Florida on his left arm and a naked woman on his right arm. He was last known to be living in North Fort Myers.
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.
