Deputy of the Month

By Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce


Deputies responded to the Star Mart convenience store in reference to a just occurred Armed Robbery with a Firearm. A witness on scene obtained a vehicle and suspect description and a tag number. Deputies were able to locate a local address for a suspect. Deputy Scowden arrived in the area of the suspect’s address, the vehicle; a white Nissan Sentra began to flee the area, and failed to stop for Deputy Scowden. A vehicle pursuit ensued.

After a five-minute chase, the pursuit ended with a successful PIT maneuver performed by Deputy Scowden. The suspect was arrested and taken into custody.

Based on the keen eye and quick actions of Deputy Scowden, another violent criminal was taken off the streets of Lehigh Acres, letting the good citizens rest easy one more day. It is with great pride that we nominate Deputy Scowden for the Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce Deputy of the Month.
