Two men charged in Lake Worth murder
LAKE WORTH, Fla. (CBS12) —
A man who investigators said went on a shopping spree with counterfeit cash now faces a murder charge.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrested 27-year-old Robert Nunn in connection to a homicide in Lake Worth. It happened Tuesday on S. K Street., near U.S. Highway 1.
Nunn is accused of killing 32-year-old Ismael Reyes Cabrera. Deputies found him with multiple gunshot wounds at his home.
According to the arrest report, investigators eyed Dunn as a possible suspect because of a vehicle caught on camera at the crime scene, a bronze Buick Rendezvous. Investigators said Nunn used counterfeit cash to buy the Buick from another man last week. Surveillance video from a neighbor's home showed two men leaving Cabrera's home, one carried a large television. The victim's wife also told investigators her husband's credit card was used fraudulently about eight hours after his killing. Cabrera's brother said a TV was missing from the home as well.
The sheriff's office also circulated surveillance images of a man using counterfeit cash at a Walgreens in Royal Palm Beach earlier this week. Investigators later identified the man in the photos as Nunn.
Deputies arrested Nunn at his girlfriend's house, which had the Buick parked out front. The Buick had fresh black spray paint, deputies said.
The sheriff's office said Nunn, while in jail, called his girlfriend to ask her to get rid of a gun. According to the report, she initially denied it but later admitted she tossed the gun behind a dumpster and led deputies to it.
Investigators searched Nunn's home in West Palm Beach. They found printing paper, printer boxes, counterfeit cash, a box of ammunition, spray paint cans, and a 65-inch TV matching the one taken from Cabrera's home.
Deputies arrested 22-year-old James Whitfield in the killing on Feb. 8 on murder and robbery charges.
Deputies say Whitfield was with Nunn before, during, and after the murder by examining cellular site tower evidence.
Whitfield also sneakers from a store after the murder using the victim's credit card, deputies say.
