Warrant Wednesday On the Water Leads To Arrest

DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Division (CID) detectives spent a long day on the water after receiving a tip regarding the whereabouts of Jeffrey Collier Crocker. Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit assisted in the search yet unfortunately our detectives had no luck searching there. But #TeamDCSO didn’t give up!
This afternoon we received another tip about Crocker’s location, which led to several of our law enforcement deputies and detectives spotting Crocker AND another individual with an active warrant, Charles Simes. And these two weren’t empty handed!
Check out this innovative twist on first aid – this takes the term ‘pain relief’ to a whole new level! This first aid kit certainly won’t be providing any medical aid to improve your wounds — as it’s stashed with Methamphetamine, pills, uncapped, used needles and bloody cotton balls. It seems they’ve been prescribing themselves a different kind of remedy!
Sheriff Potter wants to thank our community for providing us information for our investigation that led to this arrest. We appreciate your continued assistance and support to help us keep DeSoto County safe.
