With Six Outstanding Felony Warrants Estero Man is in Police Custody

Collin Martin has an extensive criminal record in Lee County and is being charged with the carjacking at a PDQ restaurant and 7-Eleven robbery

Collin Martin was charged with carjacking and the armed robbery of a 7-Eleven in south Lee County. With six outstanding felony warrants, this is not Martins first encounter with the law. Martin has a long rap sheet with Lee County that includes multiple counts of theft, fraud, escapes and weapons-related offenses.

We started to ask how is it that someone with a long criminal record and six outstanding warrants was walking around our community. We contacted the Lee County Sheriff’s Office to ask how big of a problem this is. Right now there are 12,487 active warrants. How do you get these many offenders in custody? We are still waiting for an answer from the Sheriff’s Office, but when we get an answer we will have an update.

Martin is currently being held in the Lee County Jail without bond. He is facing ten charges that include robbery with a firearm, carjacking with a firearm or weapon and fleeing/eluding police.
