The U.S. Marshals are creating a new team aimed at targeting criminals in Macomb County.
Ann Marie LaFlamme went for an exclusive ride along with DFAT East as they hunted down fugitives.
The new Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team is focused on catching fugitives on metro Detroit’s east side.
“We do have individuals and groups that are coming on up here and terrorizing our citizens and robbing our businesses and when we can develop suspects and we need to go out and capture them before they commit another crime or they end up hurting somebody – this is the team that’s going to go out and get them,” Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said.
Wickersham is teaming up with the U.S. Marshals to find their most wanted fugitives.
“Let’s face it, nobody hunts down fugitives like the United States Marshals Service,” Eastern District Marshal Robert Grubbs said. “We have tremendous resources all over the United States and the world.”
They’re going after and capturing Macomb County’s worst and Brittany Floyd is at the top of their list.
“So Brittany Floyd is wanted for a 2015 case from Grosse Pointe,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia said.
At just 19 years old, Floyd has quite a rap sheet and is currently wanted for bank robbery.
“Her and her boyfriend go in this bank to rob a bank,” Garcia said. “They have a backpack with them and tell them they have a bomb in this backpack so they threatened they’re going to blow the place up unless they get the money.”
The boyfriend is behind bars while Floyd remains on the lam.
“We know she hangs out on the east side of Detroit,” Garcia said. “We have information she might be in the Macomb area.”
She has been seen with a multitude of hairstyles. Floyd is 5-feet-1 130 pounds with ‘royalty’ and ‘loyalty’ tattooed on her arms and ‘Detron’ on her hand.
“These are the hardest people to find, they’re just flopping from house to house and we think she may be working possibly as an exotic dancer with the information we have,” Garcia said.
As always the Marshals are offering a cash reward for information leading to Brittany Floyd’s arrest, you can call them anytime and remain anonymous a (313) 234-5656.
