2nd Arrest Made In Kangaroo Express Armed Robbery


COCOA, Florida — On January 15, 2013, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office responded to an armed robbery that occurred at the Kangaroo Express located at 3164 W. Main Street in Mims, Florida.
At approximately 10:45 AM, an unknown black male entered the business, brandished a handgun, and demanded money. The suspect obtained an undisclosed amount of currency before departing the store, where he was observed entering an awaiting vehicle driven by another male.

North Precinct patrol deputies observed the vehicle and arrested the driver, 20-year-old LeQuan Mayo, after a brief chase. Mayo was charged with Principle to Robbery with a Firearm, Resisting without Violence, Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding, and Driving while License Suspended Revoked with Knowledge.

After recovery of the vehicle, North Precinct General Crimes Agents obtained a search warrant and located several items of evidence. Agents say they then identified 29-year-old Billy Lynch of Cocoa, Florida as the robbery suspect who had fled the scene and avoided arrest.

Earlier today, agents obtained an arrest warrant for Lynch for Armed Robbery with a Firearm and the Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. GAMEOVER agents located Lynch at the Hess Station on State Road 520 in Cocoa, where he was apprehended without incident. Lynch is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail Complex on $86,000.00 Bond.

  • It's a fact that crime and the minority population are directly proportional. Meaning, the higher the number of minority residents, the higher the crime rate. Look it up....

  • NO ONE IS PERFECT. If my mind is telling me to go out and rob or kill someone that was MY MIND telling me to do it. Not my skin color' not my level of education. This world is a fucked up place because everyone has something to say. No one knows how to mind there fucking business and keep there mouth shut. If everyone will live there own like and stop worrying about other ppls than the world would be a better place. They let us know these things so we can be safe and so we can know what's going on in this world. But we still have people racially profiling people & judging them by there education level. That's not rite. Martin Luther king isn't here anymore so we can all have equal opportunities & we still have people who don't care. Smh people don't understand the meaning of life. It could be so much worse. But we had people fighting for us so our generations won't have to go through what they went through. Smh I'm very disappointed in my generation. Smh

  • Smh I know the driver. & he is not what y'all making him out to be. That young man has a good heart. Yes he was in the wrong but who are we to judge. No one is perfect. & NO ONE GOT HURT ANY DAMN WAY. Zimmerman gunned down and killed somebody & he's still walking the streets. Casey Anthony killed her own daughter. And y'all say tipical N******. Like really.? We don't slice people up and put them in bags like a lot of white people do but you don't see us calling them crackers. They give us life plus 20 for shooting at walls but let white ppl free for killing people. Smh I'll leave it up to god. He deffently has the last say so

  • Y'all niggaz can say nigga cracker, when a white person does it it's racist. Yea YALL are ignorant!! Still wana throw the race card to be eased upon for breaking the law. Reality is that blacks are mainly the ppl doing the crimes for whatever reason.

  • You think people who live on welfare actually have it easier or live better lives than "middle class America?"Get real, you moron.

  • "They all?" "What's their excuse?" Wow. You do not even try to hide your racist hatred (or ignorance). Hitler would be proud.I think you have drawn a conclusion in life, and now you only look for facts to support your outlook. I thought the second person who posted hit the nail right on the head. Investment in education is the way to go. Little education usually means little future - regardless of skin color.Good job, BCS, getting these guys off the street before someome got hurt!

  • Well they all have the same opportunity for an education --So now what's their excuse ???? But I'm sure you'll find one. And that "Poverty" you speak of is a bunch of crap. FREE Rent,food, utilities, cell phones and medical. Why don't you add up the yearly cost ??? They live better than middle class American TAXPAYERS.
