FL Deputies Notice "Nervous Man," End Up Arresting A Fugitive

Sheriff's deputies with keen eyes are credited for noticing a man who seemed "nervous" about their presence at a Florida restaurant. 

Upon confirming their suspicions, the Okaloosa County deputies learned 37-year-old Daniel Lee Nelson was a fugitive from Indiana who was wanted on charges of armed robbery, pointing a firearm at someone and criminal confinement with a deadly weapon.

A statement from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office says deputies located Nelson's SUV outside an apartment in Destin on Wednesday afternoon. They called in the county's fugitive warrants team and Nelson was taken into custody when he stepped out of his apartment.

A lawyer isn't listed on records.

Authorities said Nelson had likely been working as a cook in Destin on Florida's Gulf Coast.
