An Outstanding Warrant in Jackson County Reveals Larger a Problem

Marianna- For six years the Jackson County Sheriffs Office had an outstanding warrant for the arrest of Stacey Grauberger. In 2006, she was charged for practicing nursing without a license at Jackson Hospital. But it wasn't until Thursday that Grauberger was picked up for the charge. Though most people with outstanding warrants flee the state or will change their name, she didn't. In fact, she never even left Chipley.

But there's nothing unique about Grauberger's case. There's an estimated 325,000 people in Florida living under the radar with a few thousand of them in Jackson County.

"We only have a certain number of deputies here in Jackson County, and like I say, we look for people every day. Certainly if we had more people we could look more places or check more people" Undersheriff Donnie Branch told us.

Branch said they prioritize the list, and try to find violent offenders quicker than people of less serious crimes. He said it's also routine to run checks on any person they pull over because that's the easiest way to catch most criminals.
