CCSO Deputies Arrest Louisiana Fugitive

Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a 24-year-old man wanted by Louisiana authorities for attempted murder in connection with a violent home invasion robbery in that state.

Sean Quinn Nixon of Baton Rouge was taken into custody early Monday on West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office warrants charging him with attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and aggravated burglary.  The charges stem from a September 2013 home invasion in Port Allen, La., that left a victim robbed and beaten, according to a Louisiana State Attorney General’s Office news release announcing Nixon’s arrest.

The arrest was a result of a joint investigation involving the Attorney General’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit, West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and CCSO.

The investigation led CCSO deputies to the Target Superstore 2415 Tarpon Bay Blvd., Golden Gate, where they learned Nixon was part of a crew from Louisiana doing remodeling work inside the store. He was taken into custody without incident shortly after midnight Monday.

Nixon was booked into the Collier County jail, where he is awaiting extradition by the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
