2 convicted felons arrested after fleeing from Collier County deputies


COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – Two convicted felons are facing more charges after a high-speed chase led deputies to a drugs and guns discovery.

Collier County Sheriff’s deputies attempted to stop a vehicle when it was caught traveling nearly twice the speed limit around 1:45 pm on Friday.

The vehicle would abruptly stop, where the driver, Jacob Martinez, would attempt to flee on foot. He would try to throw a black bag during his unsuccessful escape.

Jacob Martinez, 26, and his passenger, documented gang member Joshua Centeno, 28, were both apprehended.

Following a search of the bag and vehicle, deputies found various amounts of drugs, including fentanyl and marijuana. They also recovered a loaded AK-47 and 39 rounds of ammunition.

“Our brave deputies will not stop until dangerous contraband and dangerous people are off the street,” Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said. “This arrest is an excellent example of how hard CCSO works to keep our community safe.”

Martinez has been charged with three felonies of fleeing/eluding law enforcement, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of fentanyl. He was also charged with resisting law enforcement and driving with a suspended license.


Centeno was also charged with three felonies of possession of marijuana, possession of fentanyl, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
