Indian River County Sheriff’s Office captures armed burglars

Indian River:Armed robbery leads to the arrest of three juveniles

September 28, 2016

Yesterday evening, at approximately 5:53 P.M., the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call from a home in the 900 block of 11th Terrace. The homeowner interrupted a burglary in progress when he arrived home. Jimmy Spikes  and Lauren Smith  had entered the residence by shooting through a window on the side of the home. Spikes pointed a gun at the homeowner and fled the area on foot with Smith as the homeowner called 9-1-1. Deputies were on scene within three minutes along with K-9 and aviation support. Witnesses gave deputies the direction of travel of the suspects and were pursued on foot in the area of 12th Street and Old Dixie. Smith was apprehended by Indian River County Sheriff’s Deputy Ron Adamson and his K-9 partner Bud-D, and Spikes was apprehended with the assistance of Vero Beach Police Department Officer Shane Joerger and his K-9 partner Doc.

During questioning, Spikes admitted to participating in the burglary and led detectives to items taken during the burglary. Detectives also located the vehicle used during the burglary and served two search warrants related to this case. Both Smith and Spikes were charged with armed burglary, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, felony criminal mischief, grand theft, and resisting arrest without violence. Smith was also served with an active warrant for violation of home detention. Spikes is being held at the Indian River County Jail on $87,500.00 bond. Smith was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Fort Pierce.
