One Of Alabama’s Most Wanted Criminals Arrested In Escambia County

April 20, 2017

One of Alabama’s most wanted criminals was arrested and booked into the Escambia County (FL) Jail Wednesday night by the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force.

Kevin Carnell Golden, 32, is wanted in a string of holdups, including one last week during which someone was shot. He is being held on three counts of bank robbery first degree and two counts of robbery first degree. He is jailed without bond pending extradition back to Alabama.

He was arrested in the 200 block of Broadmoor Lane at the home of a relative.

Golden is accused of the holdup of the Hilltop Food Mart in Greenville, AL, a robbery during which a clerk was shot last week in Brewton, and four Alabama bank robberies including Georgiana, Pell City and Trussville.

    ‘X” marks the spot. Must be an idiot. Yes allow Alabama to extradite him. Florida really has allowed their justice system to be hijacked and not stand for what is good for the people. Thanks to ECSO for arresting him and probably a special thanks to the citizens that tipped off the law enforcement.

    Law Enforcement, please let the public know about out dangerous criminals in our area–BOLO. I think we learned from the Boyette case. We want to be a part but realized false reports and hysteria and social media caused a bit of a cluster.

    Give the Public another chance.

    Give us a BOLO and we are on board.

    He appears to have resisted arrest, or messed with the wrong person, perhaps both.

    When Alabama gets him back put him in that prison you have right up the road they should be able to touch up that jail house ink. With any justice he’ll be an old man by the time a chance for parole rolls around.
