Pasco Fugitive found in Stuart, accused of attempted murder

HOLIDAY — A Pasco County man wanted on a warrant of attempted murder was arrested Wednesday in Stuart by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.

Troy Anthony "Ice" Garner, 22, is accused of shooting a 34-year-old man in a drug deal gone wrong, authorities said. The victim, Evan Cesarek, of Holiday, went to 5639 Cheyenne Drive in Holiday on Jan. 9. to confront someone, detectives say. Cesarek was shot in the face and buttocks. Pasco Sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin said Cesarek was in intensive care for some time but has now been released. "He's very lucky to be alive," Tobin said. In fact Cesarek has been arrested twice since the shooting, on charges of DUI causing property damage and retail theft, Pasco Sheriff's records state.

Days after the shooting the Pasco Sheriff's Office announced Garner was a suspect. Information led detectives to Stuart, where federal and local agents arrested Garner, who is charged with attempted second degree murder. He is being held at the Martin County jail, awaiting transfer to Pasco County.
