The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Apprehension Unit, working in conjunction with the U.S. Marshals Service Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, has captured Brian Lacy, the convicted sex offender who fled the area last week after learning he was facing new charges.
Deputies tracked 32-year-old Lacy to Hillsborough County last night and took him into custody in a vehicle on Gulf Stream Circle in Brandon around 9:00 p.m.
Lacy, who has been convicted of similar crimes twice before, is charged with Lewd or Lascivious Battery on a 14-year-old girl and Failing to Register his Address. He is currently being held without bond in the Sarasota County Jail.
