Indicted Fugitive From Grand Island Captured in Florida.

Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard announces that Jacob Beach, wanted on sex abuse charges against a minor, was arrested on November 7 by Okaloosa Sheriff’s Deputies.

On October 19, Jacob Beach, 24 of Grand Island, was indicted on felony counts of predatory sexual assault against a child, course of sexual conduct against a child and two counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child.  Defendant Beach failed to appear at his arraignment and fled the area.  At that point, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office has authorized a nationwide extradition order for Beach’s return.
