Man on probation arrested for carrying concealed weapon


NEWBERRY, Fla. – Trevarios Nelson Oliver, 21, was arrested early this morning in Newberry and charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. He is on probation following a 2020 arrest for armed robbery.

An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy reported that he was in his patrol car at the intersection of CR 235 and Newberry Lane at about 1:40 a.m. when he saw a blue sedan turn onto CR 235 and then turn into Newberry Oaks. The sedan reportedly stopped in the roadway, with the driver sitting inside the car.

The deputy turned on his lights to initiate a suspicious vehicle investigation and asked the driver, identified as Oliver, to step back to his patrol car. Oliver reportedly said he was in the area to pick up a friend. He showed the deputy a text message from a friend, but the deputy noted that the message had arrived at 5:20 p.m., about 8 hours before his contact with Oliver.

Oliver provided the deputy with an ID card and reportedly advised that he did not have a driver’s license. The deputy wrote that he could smell marijuana coming from the car and asked Oliver if he had marijuana in the car; Oliver reportedly said there was a marijuana “blunt” in the car and that he did not have a medical marijuana card.

A search of Oliver reportedly produced a gun concealed in the front of his waistband; the gun had been reported lost to the Alachua Police Department.

The deputy charged Oliver with unlawful possession of a concealed firearm. He was previously sentenced to six years of probation in 2021 as a youthful offender, with adjudication of guilt withheld, for armed robbery. About a month after the resolution of that case, 17 felony charges of burglary in 14 cases were dropped.

Judge Susan Miller-Jones set bail at $50,000.

    • And he was arrested for carrying a concealed firearm without a permit and violation of probation.

      Just wanted to make sure that didn’t get overlooked.

    • Lmao you idiots will stick up for any of these dummies. Obviously he’s another retard that can’t follow the rules but it’s okay, they’ve got a prison cell for him and it’s just a matter of time before he’s locked up in it. Then he’ll come out and blame society for ruining his life because of the choices he made. He’s going to look nice and cute to some lifer in there.

    • When 20 I felt the same, but after many stop and yrs a suspect behavior is suspect .

    • Only an idiot would say stopped for driving while black and riding dirty. On probation for armed robbery. A felon, no drivers license, drugs in car, and carrying a concealed firearm. Its Florida so probably tinted windows and can’t see who is in car at 1:40 AM. Maybe Oliver should concentrate on trying to better himself and not be running around with a gun that he can not legally possess. Why is it that every time a black guy is arrested it because he is black but anyone else it’s because they are a criminal. Being black or any other color of the rainbow doesnt exempt or justify someone breaking the law.

  • Being 21 and able bodied must very hard in Newberry. The town should buy people alarm clocks so they can walk to work on time.

  • He knew or should have known not to have a gun….he was probably carrying the gun to commit another armed robbery…Stupid is as stupid does…he violated his probation. Why did the judge give bail? he should go straight to prison for violating his probation.

  • Really, 17 prior felonies. How about possession of a firearm by a convicted fellow. Driving w/o a license. Possession of a controlled substance. He is obviously on his way to a career criminal status.

  • “About a month after the resolution of that case, 17 felony charges of burglary in 14 cases were dropped.”

    When there is no penalty for bad behavior, it will continue…..

  • Pretty soon this will not be a problem. Gov is fixin this. Don’t need no stinkin permit anymore.

    • The Gov isn’t fixin’ that. Still be goin’ jail – violation of that funny lil’ thing called probation.
