Six Arrested For Armed Burglary And Grand Theft In Clewiston

CLEWISTON, FL -- On August 11, 2016, Hendry County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a burglary in progress at a residence on 7th Court in Clewiston and arrest six men on armed burglary and grand theft charges.

When Deputies arrived on the scene the victims said they had arrived home to find a blue, Mercedes Benz with two black males in the vehicle and two other black males standing at the rear of the car with the trunk open. The victims did not recognize the vehicle so they drove past their driveway instead of entering. 

They observed two other black males coming out of their home. The victims pulled into their driveway as the six suspects were leaving. The suspects went to the end of the road and turned around. The victims had exited their vehicle as the suspects came back by their home and one of the passengers of the Mercedes Benz had a black, semi-automatic gun and pointed at the victims.

Deputies searched the area and found a vehicle that matched the description, given by the victims, parked on the corner of 11th St. and Georgia Ave. A Deputy observed a black male, matching the description, run into a residence on Georgia Ave. 

The blue Mercedes Benz had been reported stolen out of Belle Glade earlier that day. A perimeter was set up around the residence on Georgia Ave. and before any other action was taken the suspects exited the residence and surrendered to deputies. The victims were able to identify the suspects on scene.

During the inventory search of the stolen vehicle, items from another burglary, in the area, were also recovered.

The suspects were identified as: 19 year old Tony Huggins, 18 year old Zachary Blackstock, 17 year old Dennis Johnson, 19 year old Jatavious Odoms, 18 year old Johntavis Richard, and 18
year old Artavious Warren. All six suspects were placed under arrest on charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon without Intent to Kill, Armed Burglary, Larceny Grand Theft and Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle.

Tony Huggins, Zachery Blackstock, Jatavious Odoms, Johntavis Richard, and Artavious Warren are currently in the Hendry County Jail on a $71,500 bonds.
