The Task Force received a tip that the person believed to be in the video was possibly staying at the Best Value Inn located on Davis Highway.

Marshals and Task Force Officers from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and FDLE began surveillance as soon as they could of a room possibly occupied by Faust

At about 3:15 p.m. they arrested Faust without incident when he was spotted walking out toward the parking lot. At the time of his arrest, neither a gun nor the missing $900 was found. Faust was taken to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office for questioning before being booked into the jail. According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Faust had been released from Liberty Correctional Institute back in November of 2010 where he served time on grand theft and larceny charges.

    Hope they put him away for a long time. Next time the victim might not be so lucky. He might use the gun, knowing where he’s going to be when he gets caught again. Yes there will be a next time, he’s a repeating offender.
    Just got out for Larceny, Thief in Nov. This guy is dangerous, petty, and stupid.

    $900.00 bought him free medial for the years he will be in prison as well as a roof over his head 3 squares, and dental. Maybe he knew what he was doing. Like having us great tax payers taking care of him. I sure ge sick of seeing this stuff these guys know exactly what they are doing. Something for nothing when we are out working our rear ends off. Just saying.
