Affluent “Thug” Charged with Armed Burglary After Short Foot Pursuit

BROOKSVILLE – Last month, RNRF brought you dramatic video of an encounter between Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputies and several burglary suspects, where one was potentially armed with a handgun. The incident resulted in seven arrests, after the gang rejected deputy’s orders to stop resisting and cooperate with the investigation. Most of the seven suspects are charged with Burglary, Resisting Arrest and Obstruction of Justice.

The alleged leader of the group, 21-year-old Ishmel Tyshawn Peguero, was in possession of a large sum of cash; his mother, Cathy Peguero arrived on the scene and removed the cash from her son’s pockets.

Cathy professed her son’s innocence that day and said deputies were “racists” for arresting the mostly African American group.

Since the incident in March, investigators discovered evidence that linked Peguero to an armed burglary at a residence on Grapewood Road. According to officials, Peguero entered the home on April 24th and stole numerous items, including a 9mm handgun.

On Friday, Detectives observed Peguero in the parking lot of the Circle K, located at the corner of Cortez Blvd and Mariner Blvd. Detectives surrounded Peguero’s car and attempted to place him into custody, but he pulled away and fled the scene on foot. During the chase, officials say he attempted to open the rear passenger door of a vehicle stopped at the intersection, but the door wouldn’t open. He eventually made his way back around to his own vehicle and attempted to flee, but detective were able to grab Peguero and pull him from the vehicle. A struggle ensued and according to officials Peguero pushed one of the detectives. Eventually, Peguero was taken into custody and transported to the Hernando County Jail.

Peguero faces charges of Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest and Armed Burglary.

Peguero remains behind bars, held without bond.

It should be noted that in 2006, Ishmel and his brother Emmanuel were awarded $6.9 Million, after a lawsuit filed on behalf of the brothers, claimed they were exposed to lead paint while living in a New York City apartment building. Attorneys argued that both boys suffered lead poisoning; which led to their diagnosis of ADHD and other learning disabilities.

  • Outraged…Tom…please remove the image of Ishmel Peguero on the article dated April 30, 2015….this is defamation ….The article is about a student and you are utilizing the image of an innocent person who has nothing to do or is not involved with the matter or subject of the article. You should be ashamed! It is unlawful to utilize an image that is irrelevant and has no connection to the article to provoke clicks or views to your articles/site. Respectfully, change the image and you should be credible. This young adult male is innocent and once this is proven….PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PUBLISH AND APOLOGIZE TO THE FAMILY AND MALE! BECAUSE HE IS NO THUG.

    TOM [email protected] Minority, Race played absolutely no part in deciding what image to use for our “generic” arrest image. It was chosen because of the action involved, which is rarely caught on video. It is people like you who fuel the flames by creating something out of nothing. The politically correctness in this country is getting out of hand. And people should not have to walk on eggshells because a picture may offend someone. The image is distorted and the identity is obscured. The picture will remain as our generic image.

    The image is a generic image that we used to create a general arrest logo. Peguero’s face is turned and the image is distorted.
    It will be used whenever we have an arrest and there is no photo available. It had nothing to do with Peguero.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    Tom..thank you for proving my argument, “People like you….” comment is priceless. Despite, distorting the image; THE IDENTITY IS NOT OBSCURED…YOU KNOW BETTA!

    I must agree that the politically correctness in this country is getting out of hand…. (1) ISHMEL PEGUERO PROVED TO BE INNOCENT ( AS WE ALL ALREADY KNEW) and (2) HE IS NOT AND WILL NEVER BE AN AFFLUENT THUG.




    Y AHORA!

  • You’re the ignorant ass !! I’m from NY myself, but I’m not racist or a “cracker”. Face it. The guy has a long record and won’t stop getting in trouble. As far as the cops, you have a lot to learn. My advise to you is GROW UP !!

    Thursday, 7 May 2015, 3:02 pm
  • You are right “concerned” …Adults…racist ass idiots that are so ignorant. I feel bad for their children too. Dumb ass racist crackers raising little racist crackers,,,His mother did the right thing by taking his money because if she hadn’t, the police would have taken the money and pocketed it and it would never have made it into his property or “logged” in. The police take what they want, don’t log it and get away with stealing jewelry and money ALL THE TIME.

  • I just came across this story. I read all the comments. SMH The hipocracy of these Divided States of America is overwhelming. Yet it fascinates that there is no end to it in sight. We all know that all humans bend and break both natural & man-made laws. Anyone who has ever had large sums of money obsesses over getting more of it. Like the beer drinker that habitually drinks too much of it and denies he has an issue. Or, the fat lady that eats everything she wants in private yet is always telling lies to co-workers that she hardly eats anything.
    Spring Hill it dounds like it’s a mess that’s created by misguided, miseducated, and misinformed. It’s hurtful to know that the social implosion you all are experiencing in your area is a plague that you may never recover. The seething tone and venom in all your words is depraved.

  • Holy shit, this is just absolutely hilarious. I have read all posts and folks bottom line is he is a criminal.
    This B S about him having ADHD is just a scam. Just another case of low lives beating the system. HCSO truly needs to do some checking on the mother regarding the possibility of the
    Welfare and food stamp issue. Good chance that may be true. As it was mentioned, why would someone who supposedly has that kind of money live in the area they do, and why was Junior robbing houses. Last but not least, what does he need to possess a gun for. Hope he stays in jail for a long time,, and put his mommy away as well. This is how you get rid of the trash. If this little shit was doing music then what does he need a gun for. What a scumbag family.

  • Wow, you can’t spell the simple words such as “I’m” or “don’t” or “know”, but you easily tackle “immaturity” and “conclusion”. What type of spell check do you have? Couldn’t have gone to school in Hernando County? And even when people are criticizing all the spelling and grammatical errors in other posts, they make their own errors. Does anybody here know the proper uses of “there”, “their” and they’re”???

    Some of the things in here are amazing and very sad. Kind o lik hernand cownty. Sik o dem stupid dum thugies an mowrons.

    Don is completely correct. The “wel fair way o life” is taking over. I love working to pay for all these fat slackers.

  • Charges will be filed, attorneys will plead it all down to nothing, because one of his buggie friends rolled over on him for the burglary. None of the boys had significant priors…they will all get off and make the news again some other day in the future. Ishmel is only 21and has a learning/ADHD problem, maybe he can’t follow the deputies orders or thought that other car in the intersection was his. His paint exposure problem may keep him from knowing right from wrong…case dismissed!

I hope he gets out and goes insane and kills most of you on this that are actually serious about your retarded comments

    Monday, 4 May 2015, 7:35 pm
  • @ Danielle and @ smfh- the report says that HCS discovered evidence which links the suspect to armed burglary on grapewood road.. So its a lie you say? They just go around arresting whoever they want? Newsflash! No law enforcement agency can get away with that. Be assured that a protocol is followed. If a person is innocent, there is no reason to run or resist. Why not explain that you are a musician, you have plenty of money, and no reason to steal? Compliance with law enforcement requests and answering questions results in a much better outcome, whether you’re guilty or innocent. Why act like a savage? Why act like you have something to hide?

    • citizen x…..EXACTLY right!! He may have or ‘had’ money, BUT he is still a THUG all the way!!

      Monday, 4 May 2015, 11:32 pm
  • I think it speaks to the integrity of the Sheriff’s Office that they did not take the money. Many departments would have seized the money and made the person prove that it was not illegally gained, which, to me, is a crock. There isn’t, or shouldn’t be, any law that says you cannot carry as much cash as you want, and the onus should be on the state to prove that is was made illegally.

    Monday, 4 May 2015, 6:49 pm
  • The only reason they pulled the race card the first time was because they thought they were going to hit the lottery again with another bogus lawsuit! New York may have paid you but this county won’t !!! Good job HCSO and Tom for exposing them for the dirtbags they really are!!

    Thanks to the HCSD for getting this piece of dirt off the streets. Mommy and the rest of the crew will not be far behind.

People can say whatever to a cop basically right theres no evidence on it if he did do it there jus saying that because no proof it all doesnt nake sense and at the end of that video they tried saying he had a gun but at the end of it says no gun was ever found ?? It makes no sense

    • well, someone has 6.9 million and living the good life while these kids are being left to get into trouble; there should be an investigation on the parents and what are they doing with this money since they were minors when these monies were awarded, and be charged for negligence; these kids have no reason to go around behaving this way; I would had put my kids in private schools on 6.9 million!!
