After months on the run, a Florida couple has been arrested in Michigan and awaiting extradition back to Florida.

On May 31, 2022, authorities attempted a traffic stop on Zachary Carpenter and his girlfriend Nichole Williams. Carpenter fled in the vehicle and shortly after, abandoned the vehicle and the pair fled on foot.

The vehicle was recovered and methamphetamine that was packaged for sales, drug paraphernalia and ammunition were located inside the vehicle along with identification belonging to Carpenter and Williams.

Carpenter and Williams were also wanted for a Sarasota Sheriff’s Office case where they dropped a backpack with nearly a pound of methamphetamine at the Venice Walmart. This backpack was later seized by law enforcement.

Members of the SET Team with the assistance of FDLE tracked them down to Mason, Michigan where they were hiding out.
