Folks at Lee County, FL, can now breathe a sigh of relief - their most wanted fugitive is now behind bars! Daniel Larson, 32, who holds an extensive criminal r sume, attempted to steal US 120 worth of Nintendo DS games in a Walmart at Cape Coral by cramming them all down his pants. Walmart security thankfully didn't need to body-frisk down there, and now Lee County's most wanted has finally been detained...again.
Larson has been convicted twice for armed robbery with a deadly weapon in 1999 and 2004, plus another in 1999 for kidnapping. He was paroled, but then became wanted for parole violation in 2006.
Just last September 5th, he was arrested on a larceny charge, but was able to get out of jail using fake ID - how he pulled that off should make a very sad story for law enforcement. The Sheriff's Office is now looking into that story.
But where Lee County police failed, a Walmart loss prevention officer succeeds. Larson shoved the officer aside on his way out, and he was in handcuffs minutes later. Larson intended to sell the games off to support his heroin habit.
Now, his criminal r sume will now include violating pretrial supervision, larceny, resisting a property recovery retail merchant, using a false identification that adversely affects others, forgery of a public record certificate, violating parole, and leaving a few DS games smelling like his crotch.
And no, the cops didn't play with the DS games after the arrest:
