On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, two men were robbed at gunpoint outside a closed business at 2300 North Dixie Highway. During the robbery one victim’s iPhone was taken.
On Wednesday, February 27, 2013, at about 9:00 a.m., Boca Raton detectives tracked the cell phone to an address in West Palm Beach. The home was checked at about 3:30 p.m., but the phone was not found. The next day detectives tracked the phone to another location, a short distance from the first location. They found the phone in a bedroom and the homeowner told officers it belonged to her boyfriend. The boyfriend told officers he had bought the phone at about 2:30 p.m. the day before from a neighborhood kid known as “Petey.” “Petey” was identified as Keshawn Mequel Winn, who lives in close proximity to the first address to which officers had tracked the phone.
One victim was able to identify Winn as one of the robbers. Detectives arrested and charged Winn with robbery with a firearm. Winn has an extensive criminal history. The investigation is ongoing.
