(July 11, 2019) - A Cape Coral Police Department Patrol officer’s astute observations in traffic led to a felony arrest for a stolen vehicle as well as weapons violations.
On July 10th, 2019 at approximately 3pm, a CCPD Patrol officer conducting his patrols was traveling westbound at the 1500 block of NE Pine Island Road and noticed a gray Lexus next to him in traffic, also traveling westbound. The Lexus slowed and would not pass the officer under any circumstances, even as their speed fell well below the posted limit. Finally at the 1000 block of NE Pine Island Road the Lexus passed the officer, and upon running the license plate the officer learned the vehicle was stolen out of Collier County.
The officer waited for backup officers to respond, and initiated a high-risk traffic stop at the 1300 block of SW Pine Island Road. Contact was made with two occupants, including the driver, Jonluc Maynor (W/M, DOB: 10-23-98). Further investigation revealed that the vehicle had been stolen out of Collier County with two firearms also in the vehicle. One firearm, a Smith and Wesson revolver, was located sticking out from under Maynor’s driver’s seat.
Maynor was placed under arrest for carrying a concealed firearm without permit, driving on a suspended license, and for a Collier County warrant for failure to appear on petit theft charges. CCPD detectives are also in contact with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, with possible grand theft auto and theft of firearm charges pending. Maynor was transported to the Lee County Jail.
