Here are three fugitives wanted by Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
Colleen Baily is wanted in Lee County on an order revoking pretrial supervision for resisting officers and the possession of a controlled substance.
Detectives already had a felony warrant for Bailey’s arrest when they spotted her in a Fort Myers neighborhood.
They say she pretended to be her sister but a deep dive into her real identity proved otherwise and Bailey landed in jail.
She was released after spending a couple of months in custody but a judge rescinded that decision just before the holidays.
Bailey, with a string of felony arrests that started when she was 12, is a family face to local officers.
She is known on the streets as Baby Bay Bailey.
Avra Kessler is also wanted in Lee County for violation of community control for going to a local bank and presenting the banker with a check she wanted to cash, using a fake drivers license and credit card as proof of ID.
An alert teller had a hunch and Kessler ended up behind bars.
Investigators say she also had a baggie of cocaine stashed in her bra.
She has been known to use several aliases, including Melissa James, Amber Treat and Avra Joseph.
Look for Nicole Norman in Golden Gate Estates, North Naples or Bonita Springs.
She’s wanted in Collier County for violation of state probation for the possession of a controlled substance.
She is a repeat offender and has been to prison twice for drug and theft.
She was last known to be working as a clerk for a Collier County gas station and frequently uses the alias of Nicole Romano.
If you have a tip on the whereabouts of any of these wanted suspects, contact Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers. All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
