WANTED
Grand Theft
Wanted as of 08/31/2018
Name: Hobbs, Tammi
Gender: Female   Race: Black
DOB: Unknown   Age: 41
Wanted By: Polk County Sheriff's Office, Winter Haven, FL
On June 21st, one of our detectives was at Lakeside Village in Lakeland conducting an investigation, when something caught his attention. Two women bolted out of Victoria’s Secret carrying large bags, hopped into a nearby car, and took off. The detective thought this was suspicious behavior, so he made note of the car’s tag number.

The detective went in to Vicki’s Secret and confirmed that a retail theft had just occurred.

The detective looked at security video, and it showed the two women loaded up large bags of “PINK” brand attire. 
Total value of the take: $385.45. Schnikes!!!

Using his fine detectiving skills, our detective determined who one of the women was… Tammie Hobbs.

Let’s go back to Tammie’s criminal history. She has a whopping 46 prior felony charges and 30 prior misdemeanor charges…lots of serious drug charges, thefts, aggravated battery, good old-fashioned regular battery, resisting, dealing in stolen property, forgery, child neglect, child abuse, welfare fraud, and of course, previous shoplifting. She has been to the Big House (Florid State Prison) three separate times. Maybe Tammie misses prison. We would like to help arrange a reunion there because she has clearly not learned her lesson.

Tammie is believed to be in the St. Petersburg area—her last arrest in February was in St. Pete. Or she could be “shopping” at a store near you. If you have friends or family in the St. Pete area, please share this with them since she’s probably over there stealing from their community right now.

Polk County Sheriff's Office looking for teen armed robbery suspect


On Saturday, August 11, 2018, at approximately 6:00 pm, PCSO responded to an armed robbery on Avenue A East and 7th Street in Wahneta, Florida. 

The victim, a man in his forties, told deputies he was walking down the street when two men got out of their car, demanded money and stole his wallet. One of the men threatened the victim with a black rifle before they took off in a red four-door sedan. Another witness did get the tag number from the vehicle.

On Sunday, August 12, 2018, deputies found the matching vehicle parked at a home on 3rd Street West in Wahneta, Florida. They also found 16-year-old Steven Alberto Ramos at that location. They then searched his car and found a BB handgun and an air rifle, which matched the description of the weapon provided by the robbery victim. Ramos was arrested and charged with armed robbery with a firearm. 

Ramos also admitted to deputies he and 17-year-old Jessie Cisneros both robbed the victim and also committed two additional robberies in the Wahneta area earlier on Sunday. Deputies are still trying to find Cisneros who has an extensive criminal history, which includes armed robbery and grand theft auto. He is believed to still be in the Wahneta area, or possibly Eloise.

Wanted as of 05/24/2018
Name: Sims, Jason
Gender: Male   Race: Caucasian
Height: Unknown   Weight: 220
Hair:  Brown   Eyes: Brown
Wanted By: Polk County Sheriff's Office, Winter Haven, FL

Jason Sims is the winner of Grady’s Golden Ticket for a stay at the Polk County Jail  He is currently at large, which means that he might be in Sebring, or he might be in Avon Park. We know for a fact though that he’s been at the Lowe’s stores in Lake Wales, Bartow, Lakeland-Highlands, and Haines City, because that’s where he’s been doing his thieving. His partner in crime (literally) has already been arrested.

Jason is reported to be six-feet tall, and about 220 pounds…brown hair, brown eyes. He enjoys long walks down store aisles, where he can take part in his favorite past-time, shoplifting power tools.

Jason likes electrical equipment so much, we’ve got plenty of CHARGES for him. He’s going to be charged with Obtaining Property by Fraud, Coordinated Retail Theft, and Petit Theft. Those first two are felonies, so he probably won’t even feel that petit theft charge. The Coordinated Retail Theft is four counts, so that will be like: charged, recharged, re-recharged, and re-re-recharged. And if he keeps thieving while he’s on the run, we’ll just charge him some more.

Jason is also currently on probation for theft. He’s obviously not very successful with his probation.
