On January 2, 2020, at approximately 6:48 am, a Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputy, conducting stationary speed enforcement, observed a black sedan pass his location on Summerlin Road at a high rate of speed.

It was determined that the vehicle was doing 90 miles per hour in a 50 miles per hour zone.

Upon stopping the vehicle, the deputy detected a strong odor of Marijuana being emitted from the cabin.  Both the driver, Francisco Javier Romero Carreto (DOB 05-25-2002) and the passenger, Leroy Gutfrucht (DOB 12-30-2001) appeared nervous and made furtive movements.

Following a brief struggle, both driver and passenger were detained.

A Springfield 9mm handgun with a loaded, extended magazine, two black ski masks and black gloves were found inside of the vehicle.

Francisco Javier Romero Carreto was charged with Carrying a concealed firearm, Possession of a Firearm under the age of 18, Resisting Arrest without violence, Possession of Marijuana under 20 grams and Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription.

The passenger, Leroy Gutfrucht, was charged with Resisting Arrest without Violence. 

“This is great police work by an alert deputy,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno.  “In this case, the deputy removed a handgun, ski masks and gloves from a 17-year-old.  There’s no telling what tragedy may have been prevented.”
