Detectives track robbery suspect to Miami
Lawn maintenance worker faces gun while confronting burglars
Boca Raton, FL – On Thursday, September 14 at about 11:15 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a robbery that had just occurred in the area of 815 Enfield Street.
The victim, Marvin Venegas, told officers he was working in the backyard of a residence. As he walked to the front of the house, he saw a gold SUV stopped near his lawn trailer. As Venegas approached the SUV, the driver pointed a black gun out through the open window and said, “Stop or I’ll shoot.” Venegas stopped and watched as two other males took lawn equipment out of his trailer and threw it into the back of their SUV. When the suspects drove off, Venegas wrote down the license plate number of the SUV and called police.
Boca Raton Detectives obtained the vehicle information and associated addresses from the tag. As they were checking an address in Miami, they saw the gold SUV arrive. The detectives watched as three males transferred various pieces of lawn equipment from the SUV to the house. After the suspects left the house, Miami-Dade officers stopped the vehicle and identified the occupants as Kimothy Massie, Kimothy Rozier, and Trevor Darling. All three occupants were dressed in similar, uniform type clothing, exactly as the victim had described. Vanegas identified Massie as one of the robbers, but he did not recognize Rozier or Darling as suspects.
Massie was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery. Rozier and Darling were released pending further investigation.
If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Ron Mello at (561) 620-6186 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
