Moviegoers Dramatic Conclusion Outside Beacon Theater – Suspect Arrested Again
BROOKSVILLE – Just when moviegoers at Beacon Theater thought the “drama” was over at the conclusion of their film, they stepped into a real-life “production” as they exited the theater just after midnight this morning.
Dozens of onlookers lined the sidewalk in front of Beacon Theater, as 21-year-old Ishmel Peguero was taken into custody by Sheriff’s Deputies.
You may remember Peguero from two recent arrests; one caught on camera back in March, where he and 6 other suspects were charged with burglary and resisting arrest and a second in May, where Peguero was charged with armed burglary and resisting arrest.
Recently, authorities began searching for Peguero again after a warrant was issued out of Hillsborough County (According to Jail Records) for battery.
Deputies searched Peguero’s most recent known residence at 13083 Curry Drive but the home appeared to be abandoned. Before his arrest last night, rumors began circulating that Peguero was staying at a relative’s home on Usher Street.
As luck would have it, or lack thereof, my daughters and I were exiting the theater after enjoying Jurassic World inside the new GTX Theater, when we noticed the several patrol cars in front of the theater. I immediately began filming the activity, without knowledge of what was occurring, only to find out later that I had just missed Ishmel Peguero’s arrest.
Family and friends have vigorously professed Peguero’s innocence; stating that deputies are “racist” and are always harassing him.
During a recent interview with Kathy Peguero, Ishmel’s mother, she claims that Florida has made her son “bitter” because of racial profiling by police. She went on to defend her son’s innocence and says deputies have no evidence against him.
Peguero was released on a $2,000 bond, within two hours of his arrest early this morning.
