Escaped inmate denied bond

Posted:

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - A judge denied Christopher Bryan Reyna bond during his first appearance in court Friday morning.

The escaped convict led multiple law enforcement agencies on a 24-hour search across two Treasure Coast counties before his arrest Thursday.

Agents with the U.S. Marshals Service  along with the Martin County Sheriff's deputies arrested Reyna along with Victor Diadato.  A judge denied bond for Diadato as well at his Friday hearing.

"Mr. Reyna and Mr. Diodato will be confined at the St. Lucie County jail until Mr. Reyna can be returned to Pompano Beach," St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara said. "Mr. Diodato was wanted on a charge of violating probation."

According to police records, Reyna's criminal history dates back to 2002. Since then, he's faced four felony charges and more than a dozen misdemeanors.

In 2004, he was charged with bringing a knife to Port St. Lucie High School. Police also found marijuana in his car and charged him with intent to sell it.

In 2005, he was charged with battery.

In 2006, he was arrested for possessing alcohol underage and open container.

Other charges include violating his learner's license and other traffic violations such as driving under the influence. He has also failed to appear in court.

In 2011, he was arrested for his suspected involvement in stealing more than $1000 from the Bruno House of Chocolates and charged with grand theft. Police say his girlfriend was involved in his various theft schemes.

He was also charged with stealing hundreds of dollars' worth of copper from The Home Depot, and stealing various items from Walmart on multiple occasions, including a mattress pad and several Lego sets which they say he stole and tried to return for cash.
