    Couple Carjacked In Parking Lot Of Orlando Ale House

    POSTED: 6:35 am EDT June 26, 2007
    UPDATED: 7:47 am EDT June 26, 2007

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- An Orange County couple was carjacked at gunpoint and driven to another part of town where they were eventually let go by their attacker. It happened at the Ale House on Hiawassee Road and West Colonial Drive.

    The couple was left stranded with no car and no money, early Tuesday morning, after an armed man drove off with their Ford Mustang. Deputies said the couple was in the rear parking lot of the Ale House on Hiawassee and West Colonial when the gunman approached them and demanded money.

    Even though the two victims complied, the attacker got in their car and ordered them to drive about nine miles to Rose Bay Court. That's where the carjacker forced the couple out of the car and drove away.

    Deputies recovered the stolen vehicle a few hours later at an apartment complex in the Pine Hills area, but the person who went on a joy ride was nowhere to be found.

    Crime scene technicians processed the vehicle to see if they could find some fingerprints inside and possibly identify the attacker.

    Carjacking Leads To Chase Across Orange County

    POSTED: 11:22 pm EDT June 25, 2007
    UPDATED: 10:14 am EDT June 26, 2007

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Two suspected carjackers led Orange County deputies on a high-speed pursuit, Monday evening. The thieves allegedly held a man up at the 7-Eleven on Clarcona Ocoee Road, near Apopka Vineland.

    As the victim finished pumping gas, the two armed men stole his car. One took off in the victim's black Ford F-250, the other in a red Chevy Blazer.

    Deputies chased the suspects down SR-408 to I-4, then to Orange Blossom Trail, with speeds, at times, around 80 miles per hour. The chase finally ended at the Green Arbor Apartments near Texas Avenue and Americana Boulevard. The suspect took off on foot, but deputies quickly caught him.

    "They tapped him and said, 'Get down, get down, get down.' So he lay down, but I guess he was hesitating to lay down, so they tased him," said eyewitness Darrick Christian.

    Investigators said the suspect driving the black truck was 28-year-old Victor Nieves and he was armed with a handgun. His partner driving the red Blazer got away. No one was injured during the entire incident.

    Deputies said anyone who has information about the suspect in the red Blazer is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    Both of these happened in not so bad parts of Orange county, but of course ended up in the less desireable parts.

    I am an uncle again so I will be visiting in a week or so, I think I will be carrying the whole time. Especially since my family lives in that area....

    In FL you can carry in restaurants where alcohol is served and there is no "public gathering" law.

    yeah I pretty happy about their laws compared to ours. I of course have printed out the GA and FL code and the whole receiprocity thing. Just in case local LEO are a bit confused.

    I never leave home without the code! (no not the pirates code LOL)

    Adam5, are you sure that you can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol?

    When I was in FL I didn't.

    I think it just means the part of the restaurant, hence the "portion" (like a bar). I haven't tested it out though.

    It usually means a place where their majority of income is from... ie. if they make more from alcohol sales then it's off limits.

    It's my understanding and what I've heard from people there from other forums, that you can carry in the restaurant, just not the bar area. he bar area is devoted primarily to serving alcohol and is off limits, but the rest of the place is dedcated primarily to serving food in OK for carry.
