Three Miami men arrested in Greenacres home invasion

GREENACRES, Fla. - Deputies have arrested three men from Miami who are suspects in a home invasion where nine people were held at gunpoint and the home was ransacked for drugs and money.

Deputies responded to a home invasion call in the 3700 block of Mil-Run Court Tuesday night. While en route deputies received a tip about a stolen black truck in the area that may have been involved in the incident.

When deputies arrived at the home they met with nine people who said they were drinking beer and listening to music outside when they were approached by three men armed with guns.

The men ordered them inside and told them to get on the floor, according to a police report. The victims told deputies that the three men placed blankets over their faces and duct taped their hands and feet.

The men then walked through the house asking where any money or drugs would be hidden. Deputies say the three men placed stolen items in a backpack and fled in a truck belonging to one of the people at the house.

Deputies located the stolen truck with the three suspects inside. They were later identified as Jorge Ortiz-Moreno, Norman Menjivar Casco, Tristan Lanza. They were arrested without incident. They all face a series of charges including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, home invasion and armed robbery.
