Major Crimes detectives from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrested two Orlando men Monday morning following a home invasion robbery at a residence off Marion Oaks Lane.

Deverious Leon Kia-Heem Jackson and Carlos Jermaine Davis

Deverious Leon Kia-Heem Jackson, 22, and Carlos Jermaine Davis, 20, were arrested after an extensive search. They were taken into custody after sheriff’s deputies and two K-9 units tracked them to the Summer Glen neighborhood, where residents were warned via Facebook to stay inside their locked homes.

Davis and Jackson are accused of entering the residence through the garage at about 2:45 a.m. Both were reportedly wearing masks and went into the home after pointing a gun at the victim, a sheriff’s office report states.

Both men are accused of stealing the victim’s phone and fleeing from the home. While deputies were responding, they reported seeing a vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed, the report says.

Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, which fled and later came to stop near the Summer Glen community. Deputies set up a perimeter and after an extensive search, they located Jackson and Davis with the assistance of K-9s from the sheriff’s office and the Department of Corrections.

Jackson was charged with robbery-home invasion with a firearm and battery. Davis was charged with robbery-home invasion with a firearm. Both are being held in the Marion County Jail with no bond on the robbery-home invasion charges, and a $1,000 bond for Jackson’s battery charge.

Both Jackson and Davis listed their home address as 1084 SW 157th Street in Orlando. No future court date has yet been set for either of the suspects.
