Man wanted for violation of parole taken into custody
A man wanted for violation of parole was arrested in the Cape Thursday night after he reportedly attempted to steal items from Walmart.
Cape Coral Police arrested Daniel Larson, 32, on a warrant for Violation of Pretrial Supervision and an open booking sheet for Forgery and Public Order Crimes – Use of a False Identification to Adversely Affect Others. He also was charged with larceny.
Cape Police Officer Angela Fleming responded to a retail theft with a combative male at the Walmart at 1619 Del Prado Blvd. at 7:30 p.m. Larson had attempted to steal several Nintendo DS video games by concealing them in his pants and shoes, officials said. Larson was confronted by the loss prevention officer at Walmart as he attempted to leave the store without paying for the items. He shoved the officer and tried to flee, and Larson had to be restrained in handcuffs.
During questioning by Fleming, Larson reportedly admitted to stealing the games to support his drug habit. He also told the officer that he had warrants out for his arrest because he used a fake identification to get out of jail during Labor Day weekend, officials said. He said he pushed the loss prevention officer because he knew he would be going to jail for an extended period if he were apprehended. A Florida driver’s license with the name “Brian Seiler” was found in Larson’s wallet, which he told Fleming he found in a parking lot outside a store.
Cape Police confirmed the warrant and the open booking sheet with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
Police also found that Daniel Larson listed among the Lee County Crime Stopper’s “Most Wanted” list for Violation of State Parole – Robbery.
