On Thursday, April 26, 2018, Melbourne Police Officers responded to the Wickham Pharmacy for an armed robbery that had just occurred. The suspect’s photograph was released to the public asking for assistance in this case. In a combined joint effort between multiple law enforcement agencies and members of the community, the suspect was identified as Dwayne Christopher Maynard. The suspect is believed to be involved in multiple violent crimes across Orange, Volusia, and Brevard Counties. Upon identifying the suspect, the Melbourne Police Department issued a regional alert requesting law enforcement agencies in those counties to be on the lookout for Christopher Maynard and his vehicle.
Later the same day, Christopher Maynard was located in a hotel in Ormond Beach, FL and taken into custody. Detectives from the Melbourne Police Department were able to interview Maynard and obtained a full confession, along with recovering both the stolen drugs and the firearm that was used during the commission of the crime. Maynard is being held in the Volusia County Jail on unrelated charges and is facing additional multiple felony charges from the Melbourne robbery.
The great teamwork between multiple law enforcement agencies across Central Florida and members of the communities we serve led to the arrest of a violent felony offender:
Dwayne Christopher Maynard
Last Known Address: 1318 Easton St Orlando, Florida 32825
