Major Takedown: U.S. Marshals Apprehend Fugitive Duo in Florida Operation

Today marked a significant breakthrough as two wanted individuals were successfully captured and taken into custody.

William Carlton II, a fugitive who had managed to elude law enforcement for an extended period, was apprehended in Tampa by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.

Carlton faced a range of charges, including trafficking in fentanyl, possession of buprenorphine, and the sale of methamphetamine. His evasion of court appearances had heightened efforts to locate him.

Another notable arrest involved Andrew Howard, who was located earlier today in Hernando by diligent deputies. Howard was wanted for violating probation related to the original charge of possession of fentanyl.

The collaborative efforts of law enforcement agencies in effecting these arrests are truly commendable.

Citrus County extends gratitude for the invaluable assistance provided by the U.S. Marshals Service in ensuring the safety of our community. Their role in apprehending these fugitives exemplifies effective collaboration.

These arrests serve as a stark reminder that no criminal can evade the long arm of the law indefinitely.
