When golfing, have you ever asked your caddie: What do you think I should use to reach the green from here: a shotgun or a .357 magnum? Us neither. For one South Florida teen though, it was the start and end (apparently) of his criminal career. It seems that young Juan Gibson knew his former neighbor had a bunch of guns and he knew he could steal them. But how to transport them all to his home without anyone noticing? Especially when–and here’s the part to pay attention to, kids–you have to use public transportation to haul them across town. Of course! A golf bag would hold a crapload of firearms (13 to be exact) and with the cover over the top, who’s to know you’re not just hauling the sticks around for a round at the public links? Well, an observant cop noticed something wasn’t right (probably the fact that the fully loaded bag weighed forty pounds) and young Mr. Gibson and his pal were arrested shortly after getting off the bus. Remember kids, if you’re gonna steal weapons, you might as well swipe a car while you’re at it.
16-year-old Juan Gibson has been arrested and charged with armed burglary and grand theft of a firearm after he was caught carrying a golf bag with 13 stolen guns. A Riviera Beach Police officer saw two young men getting off a Palm Tran bus at Blue Heron Blvd and Broadway around 11:30 a.m. The two suspects were carrying two covered golf bags. Both suspects fled from the officer. Juan Gibson was detained and the officer recovered the golf bags that contained 13 rifles & shotguns. Gibson was interviewed and stated he had burglarized his former neighbor’s house and knew the firearms were there.
