HAINES CITY, Fla. — A father who police say left his juvenile son on the side of the road because he suspects his son is gay is due in court Tuesday. 

  • Police affidavit: Man found son watching “male porn”
  • Evenaud Julmeus said police would find son a new home

The incident occurred Sunday, Haines City Police say in an affidavit.

The boy, whose age was redacted, was dropped off in front of the closed police department with a small duffel bag with several pieces of clothing, according to police. The boy had no food, water, or money with him.

An officer dispatched to the location said the boy was very upset and crying. According to the report, the boy told the officer that his father, 30-year-old Evenaud Julmeus, thinks he is gay because his father found him “watching male pornography on his cell phone.”

The victim advised that his father told him to pack a bag and that he was taking him to the police department where they would find him a new home. 

According to the report, Julmeus made his son get out of the vehicle while sitting in a turn lane on U.S. Highway 27 before driving off.  The boy did not have a phone to contact anyone, and his father hadn’t tried to contact law enforcement to advise them of the situation.

A bystander who saw what happened contacted the police department, authorities said. 

The mother of the boy went to go look for her son after learning what happened. Julmeus had fled the home before police arrived, they said, leaving two children alone at the home with no supervision. 

Julmeus has been charged with three counts of negligent child abuse without bodily harm. 

Seasonal UPS employee accused of going back to steal packages after dropping them off

MIAMI (WSVN) – A seasonal worker for UPS has been arrested after he was accused of returning to steal packages that he had helped drop off.

Police arrested 18-year-old Emmanuel Lamont Reggin Jr. Tuesday and charged him with third-degree grand theft, which is a felony.

According to police, Reggin was a seasonal employee for UPS and would help the full-time driver unload packages at various locations.

Police said on Monday that Reggin helped unload 5,500 packages at a company near 190th Street and Fifth Avenue in Northeast Miami-Dade.

While unloading the truck, police said surveillance video showed Reggin grabbing several packages containing two Kindles, an iPad and a Surface Pro tablet and placing them in and under dumpsters at the business when his coworker was not looking.

Detectives said after stashing the items, Reggin came back later in the evening after he had clocked out and picked them up.

Police said Reggin repeated the process the following day when he returned to help unload more packages at the business. This time, he placed two boxes under the dumpster. The boxes contained a laptop and two PlayStation 4s.

However, the business manager was alerted to the boxes under the dumpsters and checked surveillance cameras where he saw Reggin committing the act.

Reggin was taken into custody and police said the stolen items were found at his home.

UPS has since released a statement on the 18-year-old’s arrest that read in part, “UPS is working with law enforcement, and the person in question is no longer employed by the company.”

Reggin’s uncle and sister were in court while he made his first appearance on Wednesday.

“At 18, you got a chance to work, and then you go and allegedly do something pretty stupid stealing the packages,” Judge Mindy Glazer said. “I don’t know if that’s the path in life you want to take, but I would think not. I would think you would want to stay out of trouble, get a good job and have a nice life. Good luck to you, sir.”

If convicted, Reggin could face up to five years in prison.

Reggin has since bonded out of the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. He did not answer questions as he left the jail.
