A drug suspect on Florida's Space Coast tried to elude deputies setting up a perimeter around his house for a bust by bicycling away disguised in a woman's blond wig.
The Brevard County Sheriff's Office said they arrested Robert Walls despite his attempt at disguise.
The sheriff's office says in a statement that when agents caught up with Walls last Thursday to arrest him, he admitted that he was using the wig as a disguise to elude them.
The sheriff's office says he was wanted by a fugitive task force seeking suspects from a major drug investigation that led to arrest warrants for more than 100 defendants.
"Not being fooled by this incredible disguise (insert sarcasm) Agents followed the subject and eventually caught up to him on Range Rd. Once the Agents stopped the subject, they determined it was Walls wearing a long blonde wig and took him into custody without incident," Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey wrote in a statement. "Walls stated that he knew he was wanted and was using the wig as a disguise to avoid arrest."
Online court records show no attorney listed for Walls. He faces charges of solicitation to sell a controlled substance and criminal conspiracy.
"So here is the moral of the story...don’t sell drugs and you don’t have to worry about going to jail, don’t try to hide from Law Enforcement if you have a warrant, and above all else DO NOT wear a hideous wig while trying to run from the Po/Po on a bicycle. I mean come on man have a little dignity!!" Ivey added.
