Two criminals were arrested with stolen firearms in their car.
Raymond Leroy Leonard, 55, of Lake Panasoffkee and Jessie L. Pereida,
27, of Webster, were traveling in a vehicle in the vicinity of Catfish
Johnny’s restaurant in Lake Panasoffkee when a deputy noticed the
vehicle had an expired registration tag.
During the traffic stop, a
deputy confirmed that Leonard is a convicted felon. The deputy also saw
firearms in the back of the vehicle in plain sight, the arrest report
said. A check confirmed that some of the guns had been reported stolen
in Lake County.
This is why laws requiring background checks do not work.
