Two young men were arrested in the St. Lucie County area of Florida after the Sheriff’s investigators reported that they found a pickup truck with bullet holes all over it. According to a police official and records, the investigators also uncovered stolen fishing poles and Xanax.
According to the arrest affidavits, two young men of 19 and 22 years old were arrested and placed in jail on Monday, January 28, 2019.
According to the Sheriff’s Sergeant, deputies traveled to the 4600 block of Selvitz Road, where there were reports of gunfire being heard in the area. The investigators subsequently located a gun discarded in a ditch but saw no one around who might have been the shooter.
Shortly thereafter, the Sergeant stated that one of the young men called about a car that was stalled on his property in the area. He added that his truck had been shot with numerous bullet holes and that he discovered his house burglarized.
According to the arrest affidavit, when the officers spotted the man, he had a plastic bag hanging from one of his pants pockets. When the investigators questioned him about it, the young man claimed the pants were not his and he didn’t know whose they were, prompting suspicion. From there, the deputies seized the plastic bag and reported that it was holding 18 pills that were determined to be Xanax.
The suspect said that his pickup truck had been hit with bullets. Investigators noted that the truck had been hit by around 15 to 20 bullets and was near a 2012 Honda Civic that belonged to the other man. The Civic was mired in mud around the driveway area. Its back window was broken, apparently by a brick, and fishing poles were inside the rear of the vehicle.
The first man claimed he was preparing to leave for work and noticed the front of his home had been trashed, bullet holes were riddling his truck and the Honda Civic was sitting there. He stated that he knew the culprit because he knew who owned the Civic.
The two were arrested for criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance while lacking a prescription. They were held on $65,000 and $40,375 bonds, respectively, at the St. Lucie County Jail.
