Polk County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives have arrested one suspect and identified and obtained an arrest warrant for another suspect in the December 11th homicide of 66-year-old Horace Scott of Lakeland.
According to witnesses and the investigation, the suspects, identified as 20-year-old Dale D’Andrew Robinson (DOB 11/7/1992) of 217 West 7th Street in Lakeland (arrested and in jail), and 20-year-old Ladarius Demario Glover (DOB 2/8/1992) of Lakeland (currently at large), were responsible for the fatal shooting of Horace Scott as he stood on his front porch at 1046 Captiva Point around 2:50 p.m. on December 11, 2012. The crime occurred just after Scott sold synthetic marijuana, known as K-2, to a witness. The money that the witness told detectives he gave to Scott ($150.00 cash) for the K-2 was not found on Scott after he was killed.
Independent witnesses positively identified Robinson and Glover as the two suspects who were seen in the Secret Cove subdivision before and after the shooting. Phone records, video surveillance images, and interviews with witnesses confirm that the two suspects were responsible for shooting and killing Scott, and robbing him.
“It is a tragedy that Mr. Scott was shot and killed standing on his own front porch, however, here is further proof that synthetic marijuana, or K-2, is not an innocuous substance. It is an illegal drug, and criminals who use it, possess it, or sell it, are documented violent offenders.” - Sheriff Grady Judd
