2 Stolen Firearms Recovered After an 11-Year-Old Boy was Robbed in Gifford.
On January 20, 2023, The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a missing 11-year-old boy. After an immediate search, the boy was found not far from his home.
During the investigation, it was discovered the boy had run away because he was in fear for his life after being threatened and robbed earlier by 18-year-old, Agenel Lumenes.
The boy was outside in front of his apartment when he was confronted by Lumenes and threatened. Lumenes lifted his shirt and displayed a handgun to the boy and told him “go get your mother’s gun”.
The boy, in fear for his life, went back into his apartment, retrieved the handgun, and gave the gun to Lumenes as instructed.
The boy then ran away until he was located shortly thereafter by IRCSO deputies.
IRCSO deputies and detectives then immediately focused their search efforts on Lumenes who was on probation and wearing an ankle monitor. Lumenes has an extensive juvenile criminal history and is no stranger to local law enforcement. His probation officer was contacted who quickly provided IRCSO with the GPS coordinates of Lumenes.
While detectives approached the GPS-pinged area, another subject, 18-year-old Nicholas Shaw immediately ran away with a blue bag upon being summoned by the detectives.
Thankfully K9 Deputy RT Williams and his partner K9 Zeke happen to be close by and were quickly on the scene to start a track. Within minutes, K9 Zeke located the blue bag containing 3 handguns 2 which were later confirmed to be stolen.
Shaw was also apprehended and taken into custody.
Lumenes was also located hiding in a nearby residence in Orangewood Park Apartments and was quickly apprehended.
Lumenes was charged as follows:
– Robbery Armed with a Deadly Weapon
– Aggravated Assault with Deadly a Weapon
Shaw was charged with:
– Carrying a Concealed Firearm
– Resisting Arrest Without Violence
