FL: Hunter Charged With Armed Trespassing
SLCSO: Man Hog-Hunting To Celebrate Son's Release From Jail
Retired Fort Pierce Man Charged With Armed Trespassing
May 6, 2009
FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- A retired Fort Pierce man was arrested Tuesday on a
felony trespassing charge after he brought a rifle onto private property
while he was hog-hunting to celebrate his son's release from the county
jail, the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office said.
Guillermo Cabello, 66, was charged with armed trespassing after deputies
found him carrying a rifle in a pasture.
According to the arrest affidavit, Cabello told deputies he was hunting
for a hog to celebrate his son's release from jail and that he had
permission to be on the grove. However, the land owner said no one had been
given permission to hunt on the property.
Deputies said Cabello had to cross railroad tracks and jump a barbed-wire
fence to get on the grove, so he should have known it was private property.
