The only thing I like better than a story of a criminal being taken off the streets is a story of a really stupid criminal being taken off the streets.
The Miami Police Department satisfied that need late this afternoon when it sent out a press release that tells the story of not one, but two really stupid criminals being removed from our streets. Enjoy!
OFFICERS ON HIGH ALERT DETECT ARMED MEN
Today, at approximately 7:30 AM, a Miami Police officer was working a car fire at NW 3rd Avenue and 11 Street, when he witnessed a vehicle go the wrong way on Northwest 11 Street. The driver and passenger exited the vehicle and walked towards the officers. The officer asked the driver for his license.
Shortly after, the driver, Jovens Esperance, D.O.B. 3/4/92, was placed under arrest and charged with one count of no valid driver license. The passenger remained on the scene.
Once Esperance was arrested for the traffic violation, the officer began to search the silver 2002 Pontiac Bonneville and found a loaded 45 caliber Glock handgun with an extended magazine, a loaded AK-47 assault rifle on the rear passenger seat and a 45 caliber Ruger handgun on the front passenger floorboard of the car. Immediately, officers placed Christopher Jaime Sealy, D.O.B. 10/24/92, under arrest.
All three loaded firearms were confiscated. Detectives arrived on the scene and both Esperance and Sealy were taken to headquarters for questioning.
After detectives questioned both men and checked the serial numbers of the weapons, Jovens Esperance, D.O.B. 3/4/92, was charged with three counts of carrying a concealed firearm, two counts of grand theft and one count of possession of cocaine.
Christopher Jaime Sealy, D.O.B. 10/24/92 was arrested and charged with three counts of carrying a concealed firearm and two counts of grand theft. Two of the three firearms confiscated were reported stolen, one out of Miami-Dade County Police Department and another by Hollywood Police Department. Detectives are still waiting on a response on the AK-47.
