A notice to be on the lookout for 25 year old Ernesto Herrada Cordova was issued early this morning saying the suspect possibly had ties to the Florida Keys. The BOLO information indicated he was very aggressive and dangerous. Just before 11 a.m., information was received that he might be in the Lower Keys attempting flee to Cuba on a boat. The information indicated he might be on board a boat in the vicinity of the Shark Key boat ramp.
Detectives and deputies responded to the boat ramp. They were taken out to the vessel on board a Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission boat where they found the suspect hiding in the boat’s engine compartment. He was taken into custody at 12:30 p.m. without incident. He was not found to be armed at the time of his apprehension.
