WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — Walton County Sheriff’s Office deputies said Friday morning that they continue to search for a carjacking suspect.
Deputies, “spent the majority of the day yesterday continuing their search for carjacking suspect, Willie Robertson. Robertson is wanted by Panama City Beach Police Department for fleeing and eluding and is being sought by Tennessee authorities in connection with an armed carjacking.”

On Wednesday, Panama City Beach Police officers attempted to pull them over after noticing they were driving a stolen vehicle, but they kept on driving.
