WCSO detectives assist with U.S. Marshals Task Force capture

Two members of the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigations Division (CID) took part in a recent U.S. Marshals Service Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force operation that resulted in the apprehension of two Alabama murder suspects in Leon County.

WCSO Detectives Rob Giddens and Nick Boutwell were called into service to help make a quick and safe apprehension of the wanted suspects.
On Nov. 20, the U.S. Marshals Service received information that murder suspects could be driving through Leon County. Less than 20 minutes later, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Tallahassee Police Department, Florida Highway Patrol and the LCSO helicopter were in place and prepared to locate the suspects.

Image Task Force Officers also responded from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, TPD, LCSO, Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office and a Department of Transportation officer to join the search.
Law enforcement saturated Interstate 10 and U.S. Highway 27 within minutes of receiving the call and a TPD officer spotted the suspect vehicle getting off I-10 onto Monroe Street. TPD maintained surveillance until all of the Task Force assets were in place for the capture.

The suspects were apprehended without incident and law enforcement recovered a semi-automatic weapon and shells inside the vehicle. U.S. Marshals Service officers wanted to avoid a shoot out with the suspects and believe the show of force with 15 law enforcement officers kept the two suspects from putting up a fight. They feel the outcome might have been different if the suspects were approached by a single law enforcement officer.
