Woman to be on America's Most Wanted

CLEARWATER — Courtenay Savage is no stranger to video recording.

She was caught on tape firing a .357-caliber handgun into a business associate's house in 2006, authorities said. And on Saturday night, she's scheduled to be featured on America's Most Wanted.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office released a video Thursday showing Savage, 33, drive up to the house of Christina Londrini, 40, and fire six rounds.

The shooting, at 6301 144th Ave. N near Largo, happened about 4 a.m. on Sept. 7, 2006. One of the rounds cracked a mirror in the room of a sleeping infant, cutting the infant with a piece of glass. The other bullets narrowly missed other family members. Two adults and six children were sleeping inside.

It was the third time the house had been shot into. After the second time, the deputy on the case suggested that Londrini buy a security camera. That helped catch Savage.

Savage was arrested the next day and released on bail, but she fled.

She is wanted on six counts of attempted murder, charges of resisting arrest without violence and a charge of criminal mischief.

Authorities said the shooting stemmed from a business dispute between Savage and Londrini.

Savage told authorities that health problems had caused her to give Londrini an aromatherapy business a number of years ago, and now that she had regained her health, she wanted several items back.

Savage is a former detention deputy for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and a reserve officer for the Tampa Police Department.

Authorities are looking for her as part of a statewide fugitive roundup known as Operation Orange Crush. She is considered armed and dangerous.

Jonathan Abel can be reached at or (727) 445-4157.
