The Collier County Sheriff’s Office says that the victim heard his sliding glass door shatter early in the morning in his home located on the 2800 block of Van Buren Avenue. The victim then saw his ex-girlfriend enter the room, accompanied by several armed men who wore bandanas around to cover their faces. The intruders held the victim at gunpoint and stole two of his gold necklaces before they fled the home in a white Toyota Camry.
Deputies found the Camry parked alongside Airport Road. When deputies approached the vehicle, four passengers exited the vehicle and fled to an industrial area to hide from police. The driver, identified as 18-year-old Kameron Williams, sped away in the car but was stopped a short time later and arrested. The 18-year-old ex-girlfriend, Mayira Okheda-Garsia, was located hiding underneath a trailer. A third suspect texted Okheda-Garsia, letting her know that he was safe at his home. Authorities went to the home of 19-year-old Devante Sparks and placed him under arrest for his involvement.
All three suspects have been arrested and charged with home invasion robbery with a firearm and grand theft. Deputies are still looking for additional suspects involved in the crime.
