Instagram Photo Lands Felonious Florida Pistolero Back Behind Bars
Police raided Depree Johnson’s Lake Worth home last week after investigators spotted the incriminating images of the 19-year-old on the photo-sharing web site. Johnson’s rap sheet includes convictions for grand theft, burglary, and felon in possession of a firearm.
As seen above, one of the Instagram photos (click to enlarge) shows Johnson holding two handguns, while a friend points another weapon at his head.
Detectives with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office recently examined Johnson’s Instagram account as they were investigating his possible involvement in a series of burglaries.
The search of Johnson’s home turned up numerous pieces of stolen jewelry and a pair of stolen firearms. As a result, Johnson was arrested and booked into the county jail on 142 criminal counts.
Johnson’s Instagram page--which was deleted over the weekend--was entitled “duce22ceritfied.” It is unclear whether the teen, who uses the alias “Duce Johnson,” intended to misspell the word “certified.”
