|U.S. Marshals Task Force Captures Violent Felon as He Attempts to Flee|
Pensacola, FL – The U.S. Marshals
Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested a Pensacola man this afternoon
after he tried to run out the back of the house where he has been hiding.
Marshals and the Task Force caught up with Jeremy Jarmine Whiting at a home
on East Scott Street just after 2 p.m. today. They converged on the home
after seeing Whiting coming in and out of the residence while conducting
surveillance. The Task Force was assisted by Escambia County Sheriff’s
Office Patrol and K9 units, as well as Task force Officers from Escambia,
Santa Rosa and Walton County Sheriff’s Offices along with FDLE. Whiting was
caught and arrested without further incident in the back yard of the home,
as he tried to climb over several fences trying to avoid being captured. A
small amount of what appeared to be marijuana packaged conducive to that of
being sold was recovered from the home.
