The 50-year-old man Eladio Garcia Gasca, was arrested at his home in north St. Petersburg Thursday on charges of grand theft and animal cruelty.

Randy Warren with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said, “The surveillance video here was a major part in us being able to figure out who our person of interest was and eventually our suspect.”

“We know that the horse was harvested for its meat and it was pretty obvious how it was just carved up there and left there. You could see that he was interested in taking portions of the meat and left other pieces behind. It was just gruesome,” said Warren. “We have more to piece together here. We do not know if this is connected to any other thefts or slaughters of horses in the area,” he added. “The lady that owned the horse over on buckeye road was unbelievably devastated. I could probably hear her screaming from here,” he said.

Marion County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook post:


Meet 41-year-old Robert Hobby and 23-year-old Marcus Reeves, they have been arrested for a total of 14 charges combined, all in reference to Grand Theft and Burglaries.

Now being a thief already makes you dumb, but that isn’t why they are this week’s “Dumbest Criminals.” You see these two went on a burglary spree inside the city limits of Ocala and out here in the county. They were breaking into convenience stores, stealing cigarettes and lottery tickets, BUT while doing this, they were smoking cigarettes inside the stores while the cameras were watching. But that still isn’t the best part, because we didn’t need the cameras to identify them…you see when they left the stores, they left their shoe, their tools and Marcus left his wallet with his Driver’s License.

So we went to his house and knocked on the door…he confessed…both were arrested and are now in the Gold Star Hotel.
