Six Polk County Teens Arrested Tuesday Morning for Vehicle Theft And BurglaryPCSO Press Release:

Deputies from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office captured six teens early Tuesday morning, April 23, 2019, after a witness reported seeing them trying to break into a car on Rangers Path in Lakeland.


The witness called at about 3:07 A.M. Tuesday, and the first deputy arrived on scene less than five minutes later.

Deputies found an abandoned black Chevy Malibu, which was reported stolen out of Osceola County, and a witness said that she saw three boys and three girls get into the car, but the car wouldn’t start. The teens fled on foot from there.

In addition to K-9, Aviation, and the Aerial Response Team (drone), multiple calls from residents reported suspicious individuals which helped lead to all six of the suspects being located.

A deputy caught 17-year-old Adonai Rivera-Moran as he was trying to go over a fence. His 19-year-old brother Abram Rivera-Moran was also captured by a deputy while trying to scale a fence.

15-year old Crystal Shafer and 16-year-old Trinity Richardson were found together in a wooded area.

The final two suspects, 15-year-olds Zirus Barnes and Rachel Rent were caught hiding near Kinsman Way.

“We responded to this after someone saw something and then said something to us immediately. Several other people saw our deputies on scene and heard our helicopter flying above and called us to report suspicious people running this way and that way. We have some great tools to help us find the bad guys, but having a community willing to help out can really make the difference.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff
