Award-Winning Florida Cop Indicted for Shooting into Occupied Home

An award-winning Florida cop who fired into an occupied home after responding to a wrong address, forcing an innocent family out at gunpoint in the middle of the night and ordering them to sit handcuffed on the curb for ten hours, was indicted by a grand jury.

Ocoee police officer Carlos Anglero turned himself in Thursday evening, according to [__WKMG in Orlando.__](http://www.clickorlando.com/news/ocoee-pd-officer-charged-after-grand-jury-indictment)

There is still no word on whether the other officer who fired into the Central Florida home, Stephanie Roberts, will also be indicted. Both were already under investigation by internal affairs prior to the shooting.

The [__incident took place at around 1 a.m. on February 6, 2016__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/02/07/florida-cops-shoot-up-familys-home-after-responding-to-wrong-address/) when dispatchers sent the officers to the wrong address on a domestic violence call because of a spelling error.

The actual address was a home on Bent Grass Avenue, but the dispatcher typed in “Bend Grass Avenue,” which did not come up in the system.

So the dispatcher sent the officers to Belhaven Falls Drive, figuring that was close enough, even though it was a half-mile from Bent Grass Avenue, according to the [__Orlando Sentinel.__](http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-ocoee-police-shooting-wrong-house-20160208-story.html)

The officers pulled up to the home and began banging on the front door, rousing a husband, wife and 12-year-old son from their sleep.

When the husband demanded to know who was at the door, he received no answer, so he assumed they were burglars trying to break into his home.

The man then retrieved a gun as the cops began shining lights into his home, which made them fear for their lives.

“Gun!” one of the cops yelled before both cops opened fire.

The family then hit the ground as bullets tore into their home.

It does not appear as if the cops ever made it to the correct address where the domestic violence was taking place because they spent the next ten hours further harassing the family by keeping them handcuffed on the curb.

Roberts has since been fired, but Anglero was kept on paid administrative leave.

In 2010, Anglero received the Officer of the 3rd Quarter award for planning a company picnic [__as you can read in this screenshot.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Carlos-Anglero.jpg)

Not to be outdone, Roberts received the Officer of the 4th Quarter award in 2013 for reasons that are not stated [__in this document.__](http://dms.ocoee.org/dms/1/doc/546287/Page1.aspx)

The two officers were already “under internal investigations before the shootings for issues involving time sheets and workman’s compensation,” according to [__WFTV.__](http://www.wftv.com/news/local/fdle-investigates-after-ocoee-police-fire-into-wrong-home/66491681)

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
