FL: Hunter Charged With Armed Trespassing

SLCSO: Man Hog-Hunting To Celebrate Son's Release From Jail

Retired Fort Pierce Man Charged With Armed Trespassing

May 6, 2009

FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- A retired Fort Pierce man was arrested Tuesday on a felony trespassing charge after he brought a rifle onto private property while he was hog-hunting to celebrate his son's release from the county jail, the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office said.

Guillermo Cabello, 66, was charged with armed trespassing after deputies found him carrying a rifle in a pasture.

According to the arrest affidavit, Cabello told deputies he was hunting for a hog to celebrate his son's release from jail and that he had permission to be on the grove. However, the land owner said no one had been given permission to hunt on the property.

Deputies said Cabello had to cross railroad tracks and jump a barbed-wire fence to get on the grove, so he should have known it was private property.
