HOLT, Fla., Sept. 23, 2022— An attempt to serve an arrest warrant on a Holt man resulted in the arrest of him and another former Holt resident Sunday evening.

Robert Louis Caporaletti

Holt resident Robert Louis Caporaletti, 37, and Baker resident Ashley Nicole Cornish, 36, were arrested near the intersection of Trawick Creek Road and Horseshoe Lane as they attempted to flee from Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Around 7 p.m., deputies were attempting to locate and serve an active warrant on Caporaletti for felony possession of methamphetamine, according to the arrest warrant.

After abandoning their car at the closed Northwest Florida Water Management Area, Cornish, not wanting to leave Caporaletti’s side, chose to duck into the woods with him in an attempt to flee from the deputies, according to Cornish’s arrest report.

Both were found hiding underneath thick foliage approximately 1,300 feet from where they ditched their vehicle.

As a result, Cornish, who was placed on one year of felony probation in August for assault with a weapon, armed trespassing and meth possession, was charged with resisting arrest and probation violation.

Caporaletti was arrested for resisting arrest; larceny and probation violation for felony possession of meth and petty theft.

After she was read her rights, Cornish stated she ran because she didn’t want to violate her probation. Caporaletti, who said he was aware of the arrest warrant on him, stated he ran because he didn’t want to go back to jail.

Both are being held in the Okaloosa County Jail.
