Sexual Predator On The Move
Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Pursuant to Florida Statute 775.21 the Public Safety Information Act of 1997, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office is making formal community notification of a sexual predator registered as residing in Lee County, as well as whether the victim was a minor or adult at the time of offense. We are hopeful that local media will assist in this process by broadcasting or printing the name, description, and photograph of the court designated predator.

Eddie Pruna (DOB 2/18/1971) has moved to 6330 Nalle Grade Road, North Fort Myers 33917. His previous address was the woods behind 3451 Ortiz Avenue, Fort Myers, 33905.

Name/Description: Eddie Pruna (DOB 2/18/1971)

White male; 5 ft. 5 inches tall; 150 lbs.; brown hair; brown eyes

New Address: 6330 Nalle Grade Road, North Fort Myers 33917

Pruna was convicted in April, 1997 of sexual battery on a victim under 12 and lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim under 16.

Photographs and additional information on sexual offenders and predators can be retrieved on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) website at http://www.fdle.state.fl.us.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office distributes this information to area schools, state registered daycare centers and Lee County Parks and Recreation facilities located within a one mile radius of the predator’s residence. Additionally, the Sheriff's Office has joined a partnership with FDLE by offering a link to a new feature. FDLE developed a notification service at the direction of the Florida Legislature as part of the state's compliance with the federal Adam Walsh Act. Citizens may select an unlimited number of addresses and/or offenders to track...and can update their selections at any time. The alert system will send e-mail notifications within 24 to 48 hours of an address change to the state's registry. The Lee County Sheriff's Office encourages people to sign up for this free service by:

 1. Visiting the Lee County Sheriff's Office website at http://www.sheriffleefl.org
