RE: Fugitive Arrested
On September 6, 2011, D/S Javier Gonzalez, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Unit, received information regarding Henderson’s whereabouts. D/S Gonzalez and D/S Hazy, of the Street Crimes Unit along with the assistance of Detective Farless, conducted surveillance and as Henderson emerged from the wooded area, he was apprehended without a struggle. Henderson had been sought on warrants for Aggravated Battery With a Deadly Weapon, Carjacking With Deadly Weapon and False Imprisonment warrants, from Orange County, Florida.
Henderson was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail for the warrants. He was also charged with Violation of Probation-Aggravated Battery. He is being held on the charges with no bond and will be transported to the Orange County Jail. Henderson has a lengthy and violent past.
There is no other information at this time.
Sheriff May said of the arrest, “We have been looking for this man and hearing that he was in our county for about two months. Once again, a citizen has gotten involved and given us information that led directly to his arrest. I, and my officers sincerely appreciate the citizens of this county. My officers did a good job with this tip and were able to apprehend a dangerous and wanted criminal.”
