Sheriff gives spin on crime-fighting with ‘Wheel of Fugitive’

BREVARD COUNTY, F.L. (WFXB) – One police department in Florida is giving the search for criminals a creative spin.

The game show-style videos feature the most wanted local criminals, and a new episode is added to the sheriff’s Facebook page every week.

Sheriff Wayne Ivey spins a wheel with the names and photos of 10 wanted fugitives and highlights an unlucky “winner.” The videos have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and have led to dozens of arrests.
