Orlando, FL –
A Florida man led police to his location by streaming on Instagram live while they searched for him.
Kevin Gaines Jr. was arrested for possession of a firearm by a delinquent in DeLand, Florida. ABC Orlando (WFTV) reports that Gaines was wanted for several charges. The police were tipped off of Gaines’ location by the Crime Suppression Team who informed authorities that his car was spotted in DeLand.
While authorities were working to confirm his location, they joined his Instagram Live feed and saw that he was inside the residence. Once they confirmed his location, police shined a light through the window, causing Gaines to disconnect his Instagram Live feed.
Police entered the home and found 4 firearms including one in the driveway. In addition to the delinquent weapon charges, Gaines was also charged for his involvement in a drive-by shooting at a skating rink last year.
