A fugitive from New York thought that fleeing to Florida was a smart idea. Turns out not so much.
According to deputies, on Wednesday, members of the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force received information that wanted person Anthony Terenzi fled New York and was in Indian River County.
Information obtained during the investigation led the task force to 275 Zane Avenue in Sebastian, Florida.
Members of the task force, along with the Sebastian Police Department, were able to locate Terenzi and took him into custody on warrants out of New York, according to investigators.

During the arrest, Terenzi was found in possession of methamphetamine.
The warrants out of New York were for felony Reckless Endangerment during a domestic violence incident.
Terenzi is also the suspect in another felony investigation involving a stolen vehicle out of New York.
“The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office encourages criminals to not seek refuge in our county,” said the sheriff’s office. “The Sheriff’s Office will continue to partner with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to ensure our community is safe.”
