14-year-old accused of gun store theft to be charged as adult

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The elder of two children accused of the theft of 22 guns from a Cape Coral store earlier this month will have his case transferred out of juvenile court.

14-year-old Felix Ayala’s case was turned over to adult court Tuesday, according to the State Attorney’s Office. His younger brother, 11-year-old Lukis, will remain charged as a juvenile.

Together, investigators say, the boys broke into the Guns 4 Less store on Del Prado Blvd. June 8. They reportedly ran with multiple handguns, ammunition, magazines, and long guns.

Detectives located a handbook in which the boys reportedly planned out the heist in great detail.

Felix’s bond has been set at $286,500. His next court appearance has been set for July 5.
