A release about the arrest posted on the Stuart PD Facebook page states: "Cases often take months of dedicated work to solve, from collecting evidence, to identifying suspects, to making an arrest. It takes not only teamwork from within the department, but collaboration with other agencies and the community to keep our city safe. Even cases that may seem simple on the surface take time to rightfully bring justice ... no matter how long it takes, we relentlessly pursue the criminal element that threatens the quality of life and safety of our community."
