FDLE and Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrest homicide fugitive from Puerto Rico

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – Special agents with the FDLE Fort Myers Regional Operations Center and deputies from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested Luis Enriquez Ortiz-Rodriguez, 23, of Collier County, yesterday on multiple outstanding arrest warrants. Ortiz-Rodriguez was wanted in Puerto Rico for homicide.  He also had active arrest warrants in Virginia for shooting a firearm from a vehicle, reckless handling of a firearm and possession of marijuana. 

FDLE agents received a tip in mid-September that Ortiz-Rodriguez was residing in Southwest Florida.  An exhaustive investigation led agents to the Tuscan Isle Apartments in Collier County where Ortiz-Rodriguez was located and arrested without incident.

Ortiz-Rodriguez was booked into the Collier County Jail and faces extradition to Puerto Rico and Virginia.
