After a relatively bungled home invasion in Port Richey, Fla., Pasco County deputy sheriffs responded to initiate an investigation. According to Pasco County Sheriff's Office reports, the incident occurred on Friday, September 13, 2013, at approximately 4 a.m. In their investigation, the deputies learned that the victim was laying down on a couch when four masked intruders, dressed in black clothing, broke into his home.
The intruders tied up the victim and used scissors to inflict lacerations on his face; injuries consistent with being beaten were also discovered on the victim's body.
As the four intruders gathered the victim's personal property --mostly electronics, some prescription drugs and $2500. in cash-- the victim recognized one of the assailants as his ex-girlfriend's current boyfriend stemming from removal of his mask, exposing his face. Moreover, he also recognized his ex-girlfriend among the group of four. With these two known identities, Pasco County deputies conducted background information pertaining to the ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Olen, 27, and her current boyfriend, Justin Nutter, 32.
Sheriff's intelligence led them to check a "last known address" associated with Nutter, a home on 36440 Chancey Road in Zephyrhills, in the eastern region of Pasco County.
At approximately 6.p.m. on Friday, Pasco County deputies arrived at the Chancey Road address. A male standing outside in front of the home was identified and detained. PCSO deputies then confirmed that three other individuals were inside the house; their identities were revealed as the other three accomplices in the home invasion.
As Pasco County deputies commanded the three suspects inside the home to surrender peacefully, silence was the response.
In such a scenario, the scene is secured (enveloped by law enforcement officers), the area in proximity is evacuated, vehicular traffic is generally detoured, and the SWAT team is summoned.
Upon the SWAT team's arrival, logistics and personnel are relegated to tactical plans. However, negotiations are implemented in efforts to secure a non-violent resolution. For six hours, the standoff ensued.
Repeated commands by Pasco County sheriff's deputies to capitulate peacefully were unheeded. Pasco County SWAT members initiated entry; three suspects were arrested within the home, successfully concluding the standoff slightly past midnight Saturday morning.
Three of the suspects were booked into Pasco County jail in Land O' Lakes, Fla., and charged with Home Invasion Robbery. Nutter was found within the home and needed medical care; deputies suspected he was suffering an overdose and had him transported to a nearby hospital.
Pasco County arrest affidavits indicate Quin disclosed the entire criminal event's details and implicated Olen, Nutter, and Bush as accomplices.
