Triple Murder Suspect Busted For Carrying Concealed Weapon
South Florida Crime
FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The man accused of a triple murder in Lauderdale Lakes is in trouble with the law again.
Lineten Belizaire was pulled over by a Miami-Dade police officer on Thursday, March 22nd, for having dark window tints. According to the arrest affidavit, the officer asked Belizaire if there were any weapons in the car and he replied “No officer, check if you like.”
When the officer searched the car, he found a Ruger semi-automatic nine millimeter gun on the passenger seat floor, states the report.
A records check revealed a criminal past of aggravated battery with a firearm. He was taken to the Dade County Jail and the gun was impounded.
He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and has already bonded out of jail.
Belizaire, jailed January 22nd in connection with the murders of two women and an 11-month old child, was released from jail on March 2nd after a grand jury failed to find enough evidence to indict him.
He had faced three counts of First Degree Murder for the January 15th slayings of Natasha Plummer, 25, her son Carlton Stringer Jr., 6 months, and Octavia Barnett, 21, at a Lauderdale Lakes apartment.
Barnett’s son, 11-month-old Ladanian Belizaire, was found unharmed at the bloody murder scene.
When the Grand Jury declined to indict Belizaire, Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti issued a statement expressing his disappointment with the Grand Jury’s decision.
Friday, BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella told CBS4 News that BSO Homicide Detectives are aware of Belizaire’s arrest by the Miami-Dade Police Department. However, they are not releasing to the public whether the murder weapon in the Lauderdale Lakes triple homicide has been recovered. BSO also won’t say whether the gun confiscated from Belizaire’s car is related to the triple homicide.
BSO stated they have no updates in the murder case and are still investigating.
