DELAND, Florida — (Scroll Down For Video) — Kevin Gaines Jr. was located and arrested this week by members of the Sheriff’s Office West Volusia Crime Suppression Team.
Gaines was arrested Thursday night at 409 W. Beresford Ave., DeLand, after the Crime Suppression Team developed information about the vehicle he was driving, and a deputy spotted the vehicle at that address.
Gaines was live on Instagram at the time, and in watching the video, Deputy Billy Leven could tell Gaines was inside the house. When he pointed his spotlight into the window, Deputy Leven could see the light show up in the live Instagram video shortly before it abruptly ended.
Deputies and DeLand police officers surrounded the house, and Gaines surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.
During a search of the house, three firearms were recovered, along with a fourth found underneath a vehicle in the driveway. Gaines was arrested on a charge of possession of a firearm by a delinquent, along with his warrants for grand theft auto, criminal mischief and no valid driver’s license, along with warrants for bond revocation on previous charges of discharging a firearm from a vehicle, two counts of possession of a firearm by a delinquent, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement and no valid driver’s license.
