WANTED
Grand Theft ( 26 counts)
Wanted as of 2017/10/06
Name: Meadows, Kevin
Gender: Unknown   Race: Unknown
Wanted By: Polk County Sheriff's Office, Winter Hven, FL

48 yr old Kevin Meadows of Medinah Drive, Winter Haven.

He's currently sitting in jail, on a Nebbia Hold*, with 26 charges related to grand theft, fraud, using another's personal ID, and scheming to defraud - we're putting this out there to make sure all of his victims have come forward.

Have you been swindled by this man?

Here's what he does: he posts ads online advertising "credit assistance" or "credit repair" and his business name is Lucent Financial. When people fill out an application & give him anywhere from $300-$500 deposit, they never get anything in return - no financial advice, no credit repairs, no nothing - except a runaround. He also advertises that he will help you find a rental or a home to buy (and he doesn't do that, either).

He's a con artist, and a scammer. If you're a victim, please contact PCSO at 863-298-6200, and ask to speak to a fraud detective.

If you have information about him or his crimes and wish to remain anonymous, call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477). Anonymity is guaranteed!

*A Nebbia hold requires that a defendant and co-signers of a jail bond produce and disclose the source of the bail monies/collateral, and that they must be from from a legitimate source and not acquired through illegal activities, or from the profits of a crime such as drug trafficking, money laundering, theft, or fraud. In other words - you can't bond out unless you can prove the money is legit.

Last Known Address:  Valrico, FL
Wanted By: Polk County SO, Winter Haven, FL

Today's #WarrantOfTheDay is 50-year-old Mark Logan Brents of Valrico, who currently has a Hillsborough County warrant for his arrest, and is in the process of having a Polk Count warrant issued, after being caught shoplifting from the Lowes on Lakeland Highlands in Lakeland tonight.

According to loss prevention personnel, Mark used to work at Lowes and is known to frequent them, and steal from them. When he tried to steal tonight and was confronted, he fled in a gray 2017 Hyundai with FL tag HKQG90.

When we visited the HCSO website to obtain a booking photo, we had 43 different choices (because that's how many times he's been there). We chose this one because it's the most recent - he just bonded out of HCSO jail on July 11th. Maybe his next trip to jail will be in Polk. The food there is much, much worse.

If you know where Mark Brents is, give us a call at 863-298-6200. Or you can remain anonymous and call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-8477 (TIPS).

Highlands County SO: Warrant issued after meth lab discovered in camper

SEBRING -- After a tip led to the discovery of a meth lab in a 25-foot camper on the bank of Arbuckle Creek last month, an arrest warrant has been issued for 24-year-old Matthew James Price.

After receiving the tip, the Special Operations Unit went to the camper on May 18. When they looked inside, they saw equipment used to make methamphetamine all over the trailer. The Drug Enforcement Agency’s meth lab team was called to process the scene due to the dangerous nature of the chemicals used in making methamphetamine, which can be explosive. 

Once everything was tested and removed, detectives seized 347.8 grams of methamphetamine. They also determined the last person living in the trailer. Price has not been seen since the meth lab was discovered.

He is wanted for charges of
Price’s appearance may be different than the picture. When he was last seen, he had brown hair and a brown beard.
