DeFuniak Springs, Fla— Walton County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Steven Daniel Hurst, 32, for multiple felony warrants.

Approximately two weeks ago, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office reached out on social media for information on the whereabouts of Steven Daniel Hurst. Hurst has four felony warrants for Sale/Possession/Distribution of Methamphetamine and was also featured on the Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers page in July.

This morning during a routine patrol, a WCSO deputy saw Hurst exiting a vehicle and recognized him as the fugitive. As the deputy attempted to make contact with Hurst, he attempted to flee and a short foot pursuit ensued. Hurst was quickly captured and taken into custody without further incident.
