The Free Press readers may remember on June 13 when we reported that two brothers, Felix and Lukis, were accused of breaking into a gun store and stealing 22 guns and 36 boxes of ammunition.
According to the Cape Coral police., the brothers broke into the ‘Guns 4 Less’ store and stole as many guns as they could carry as well as 36 boxes of ammunition.
Cape Coral Police Department said, “They both smashed the display cases and began ransacking the entire business for a total of 22 guns, rifle and handgun magazines, and various calibers of ammunition.”
The brothers, Felix, 14, and Lukis, 11, were ordered to 21 days in juvenile detention. But the boys’ father wants more done.
“All they keep doing is keep giving him 21 days, 21 days, a slap on the wrist,” the boy’s father told WINK news in June.
“I want them to stick him in boot camp or some sort of place you know where he has to follow rules because I’m trying and it’s not working and I don’t want to hurt the boy but he tries to jump on me and everything,” their father told WINK news.
Cape Coral Police Department has been called 13 times in the past year to the home of the two brothers.
