Caper Coral, Florida - Cape Coral police arrested six suspects from Cape Coral and North Fort Myers today following an early morning home invasion robbery at 503 SE 12th Court.
Police responded to the address shortly after 12:30 a.m. after receiving a 9-1-1 call. The caller said two masked suspects entered the house armed with shotguns and demanded money, cell phones and drugs. The suspects, a man and a woman, were both white and each armed with a shotgun.
The two victims, a man and a woman, were in one bedroom when the suspects entered, and were held at gun point, begging not to be hurt.
The suspects demanded cell phones, and one victim gave his cell phone to the male suspect. The male suspect threw the phone down on the ground, smashing it. The male suspect then stole money from a wallet and a bottle of prescription drugs.
The male suspect exited the bedroom and found two other male residents on the other side of the house and ordered them to sit on the couch while pointing his shotgun at them. The suspect demanded money and drugs, but neither victim had anything to give.
One victim was able to escape. As he ran down the street he saw a white truck parked in the street turn on its lights and engine and drive towards him. Fearful that there were more suspects, he ran around his house.
After the victim fled out of the house, the armed male suspect yelled to his female accomplice that they needed to go, and she emerged from the bedroom where she'd kept the female victim at gunpoint. Both suspects then ran out of the front door. The victims heard a loud truck motor circling the area while waiting for police to arrive. All four victims said they feared for their life and wanted to pursue charges against the suspects. The victims gave detailed descriptions of the suspects' attire and physical attributes that were visible.
While enroute to the initial 9-1-1 call and describing the suspect's white pick-up truck, Cape police officers located a white Dodge pickup at a nearby intersection, occupied by multiple people and noticed the driver look directly at him, appearing nervous.
The truck accelerated and as the officer turned to follow it, it sped off, trying to elude the officer. A final stop was made and six occupants immediately exited and began walking away. Officers were able to detain all six , and two shotguns were in plain view in the back seat of the truck.
The driver was identified as David Gubanich II of Cape Coral. The other occupants were identified as William Pope of North Fort Myers, Candice Jones, no address listed, Robert Sanders, Shannon O'Toole, and Alexander Lacy, all of Cape Coral.
The victims identified Pope, 23, as the male suspect that held each of them at gunpoint and robbed one of them and Jones, 26, as the female suspect that was armed with a shotgun in the home and that held the female victim at gunpoint.
Probable cause existed for the arrests of the following suspects for the following charges: Pope, home invasion robbery; Candice Jones - home invasion robbery and carrying concealed weapon; and Gubanich, Sanders, O'Toole and Lacy for principal to home invasion robbery. Each suspect was taken into custody without incident.
An additional charge of CCW was levied against Jones, as she had a U.S. Army issued K-Bar Combat Knife (7" fixed blade with an overall length of just under 12") on her person inside her combat boots.
"Fortunately Officers of the 3rd Platoon were able to locate these suspects within minutes of this unbelievable crime. Our Major Crimes Detectives were then able to make arrests on these individuals and get these violent criminals off of our streets. There's simply no place for this type of activity here in Cape Coral" said Cape Coral Police Lieutenant Tony Sizemore.
