Five teenagers arrested, including four juveniles, for vehicle burglary


Five teenagers, four of whom were juveniles, were arrested early yesterday morning on charges of burglary to an unoccupied vehicle. Brandon Cushion, 16; Mikael Immanuel Fuye, 16; Noah Rafael Hayes, 17; Pierre Lamont Johnson, 18; and Demorion Queen, 16, were all arrested.

According to the arrest report, a resident on NW 37th Drive in Mile Run was awakened at 5:40 a.m. when he heard a horn honking. He came out of his house and saw several males near his vehicle. The teenagers ran but were quickly located by Gainesville Police Department officers and detained. The incident was captured on surveillance video from a nearby house.

Hayes, although 17, has an adult conviction from 2021 for burglary of an unoccupied vehicle; a charge of possession of a weapon by a juvenile previously convicted of a charge that would be a felony if committed by an adult was dropped. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail, followed by 36 months of probation. However, he violated the terms of his probation and was re-sentenced to 364 days in jail, with credit for time served. Hayes has been booked into the jail five times since January 13, 2021. He is no longer in the Alachua County Jail.

Johnson pleaded nolo contendere to a charge of burglary of an unoccupied vehicle related to an incident in January of 2020. Adjudication was withheld, but he violated the terms of his probation in May of 2021. He was also charged with burglary of an unoccupied vehicle related to an incident in December of 2019; adjudication was also withheld in that case. At the time, he had three felony adjudications and a pending juvenile case of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was sentenced to 110 days in jail in August of 2021, with credit for 29 days served. Johnson is being held on $15,000 bond.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Starting young on the lawyer-judge quid pro quo gravy train! Just give them one way bus rides to California or New York. They’ll start long executive careers there.

  • Blame GPD and SAO. We will never know if these criminals are part of the diversion programs or worse, the Reichert House money train. These programs have no accountability so we can’t know. Too many programs designed to make money for GPD and they don’t work! Sure wish we could get the books, but there aren’t any. That’s the City Commision’s fault. Where is the oversight on these programs?

    • Agreed on that diversion program. Sen Perry has
      That bill going through to wipe the records of juveniles…
      Desantis needs to veto that.

    • If you’re a minor, your parents are still responsible
      For you. Arrest & charge the parents for their criminal
      Juveniles. If these juvenile thugs are emancipated,
      Then they need to be treated as adults and go
      Through the adult system. I can see one “pre-trial”
      Intervention “diversion” chance , but this Johnson
      Guy is a one-man crime wave. The punishment nerds
      To be severe so that they know not to commit any
      Crimes to stay out of the system…”don’t do the crime if
      You can’t do the time”. They need to do a “ use a gun in a crime
      And you’re done. 10,20, life. Zero tolerance” campaign.
      The parks division needs to put these social justice
      Murals up to help the black community. “A mind is
      A terrible thing to waste”…

      • Hayes is a one-man crime wave too. In the old country and In the days of yore, they would cut off your hand if they caught you
        Stealing…these youths are bad seed.

        • Future street median panhandlers. Can law
          Enforcement get the panhandlers out of street
          Medians? How come they don’t say you got a choice: jail or Grace marketplace? Grace was
          Was pitched as the 10 year plan to end homelessness…instead, it attracted more vagrants…the unintended consequences of government intervention.

  • It’s the parents and the school boards fault.
    The school system needs to bring back the paddle…
    Corporal punishment. When I was a youth in school,
    The paddle was a deterrent. Parents shouldn’t have
    Kids if they can’t educate & feed them. This youth problem is also the result
    Of the welfare system.

  • Can’t say it here but I know what should have happened. Problem solved and no burden on the taxpayers. This is getting ridiculous and anyone who thinks otherwise is a complete idiot.
    These kids could have gotten up that early and been making the doughnuts instead of breaking into cars. Better off without them, if their parents wanted them they wouldn’t have been out. If the parents don’t want them, nobody does. Time to get rid of the trash. Screw the liberal idiots who think this behavior is okay.
