ORDER: Tuesday July 28th, 2020 Judge Williams signed a Court order in Sarasota demanding Vincent Martinez of the 5800 block of Driftwood Ave Sarasota to turn in his AR-15 assault rifle with TWO Magpul Prmag D-60 round magazine drums, a 20 round magazine, 2,500 rounds of .223 ammo and his Florida Concealed Weapon Permit license, immediately. What, who, or how was Vincent Martinez radicalized. What morphed the 21 year old Vincent Martinez into a Neo-Nazi thug hell bent on intimidating and threatening the Jewish population in Sarasota Fl with violence? Why has this case not been turned over to the US Attorney, Middle District of Florida in Tampa to prosecute Federally as Domestic Terrorism?
Vincent Martinez, DOB 06/27/99, is a very big guy at 6' 6" tall and 220 lbs, he had worked at a local gym on Bee Ridge Rd Sarasota, possibly as a trainer. On July 23rd, 2020 a Sarasota County Sheriff Dept search warrant was executed at the Martinez home in the 5800 block of Driftwood Ave Sarasota. Sheriff Deputies and Detectives did not find Vincent Martinez's AR-15 rifle or the TWO 60 round magazine drums or the 2,500 rounds of ammo he had purchased, not on the premises.
“The volatility of our nation right now and this kind of thing, the Jewish community is rightfully concerned,” said Sarasota County Sheriff Colonel Kurt Hoffman. "They approached us, we’ve been working hand-in-hand with them, the graffiti was terrible and despicable.” The messages scrawled in black spray paint on the Jewish Temples were not
"graffiti". KILL KIKES (JEWS) was scrawled in black spray paint on the Jewish Temples by Vincent Martinez, that is a death threat and not okay, pretty freakin far from okay.
See current mugshot above of Vincent A. Martinez, DOB 6/27/99, Sarasota. He is charged with multiple hate crimes for spray painting swastikas and slogans on Jewish Temples in Sarasota Fl July 15, 2020. He keeps his hair cut short, military style buzz cut. Deputies say they took Martinez into custody around 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday July 28th. he was in the Sarasota County Correctional Facility behind bars until Thursday July 30th. He made bail on July 29th but was not released til July 30th when his lawyer turned in the AR-15 assault rifle.
Vincent A. Martinez, DOB 06/27/99, was arrested in connection with Spray Painting Swastikas on Sarasota Jewish Temples. “The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office takes hate crimes such as these very seriously,” commented Colonel Kurt A. Hoffman. “Our detectives, Brendan Keats, worked tirelessly with help from the community to bring this case to a successful conclusion.”
Vincent A. Martinez faces three counts of Criminal Mischief by Defacing and Damaging a Synagogue, all classified as felony hate crimes. He was at a secure medical facility pending his arrest on warrants issued Wednesday July 22nd, 2020 and executed on July 28th. 21 year old Vincent Martinez was "known to kill small animals with his bare hands because it made him feel good" which he posted on his snapchat account.
Vincent A. Martinez, DOB 06/27/99, was committed to the medical health facility because he is/was a threat to himself and others. Vincent Martinez purchased large amounts of rifle ammo, (125 boxes on one day March 25th 2020), spending over $1,800 for .223 caliber ammunition. That's over 2,500 rounds for his AR-15 assault rifle with TWO 60 round magazine drums that allows him to just keep shooting.
On Wednesday June 24th 2020 at 5:32 pm Vincent Martinez purchased a 'Kimber Pepper spray blaster' at a gun store on Bee Ridge Rd. 'Kimber Pepper spray blaster' is a super effective one-two punch that stops threats at a distance of 13 feet disabling an attacker for up to 45 minutes. On the same day, Wednesday June 24th 2020 at 4:40 pm Vincent Martinez was in front of Marina Jacks along Bayfront Dr Sarasota, he was caught on video stating "6 MILLION IS NOT ENOUGH (JEWS)" and holding a sign that says "ISRAEL COMMITS WHITE GENOCIDE". During the Holocaust at least 6 million Jews were murdered by the Nazis in various concentration camps.
Three weeks later on Wednesday July 15th 2020 at 2:15 am Vincent Martinez apparently was beginning to spray paint swastikas on the Jewish Temples in Sarasota (for a 2nd time). Vincent Martinez had a AR-15 assault rifle and TWO 60 round magazine drums and in excess of 2,500 rounds of ammo.
The sign white supremacist Vincent Martinez was holding in front of Marina Jacks on Bayfront Dr that said "ISRAEL COMMITS WHITE GENOCIDE" is a term coined by white supremacists for propaganda purposes as shorthand for one of the most deeply held modern white supremacist convictions: that the white race is “dying” due to growing non-white populations and “forced assimilation,” all of which are deliberately engineered and controlled by a Jewish conspiracy to destroy the white race.
Vincent A. Martinez was in possession of a AR-15 assault rifle. Vincent Martinez purchased a 'Magpul Prmag D-60', a 60 round magazine drum on March 18th, 2020 that holds ammo for his AR style rifle, he has TWO 60 round magazine drums. A Bushmaster AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle is the same weapon that Adam Lanza used when he shot and killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary. James Holmes used an AR-15-style rifle with a detachable 100-round magazine when he shot up a movie theater in Colorado killing 12 people, the AR-15 ain't for deer hunting. Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz confessed to gunning down 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla., in which an AR-15 rifle was used. The mass shooting as Jason Aldean performed at a country music festival in Las Vegas is now the deadliest such incident in modern American history. Gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire with a AR-15 rifle and 1,000 rounds of ammo from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort on a crowd watching Aldean, killing 58 and wounding 527. And Sarasota's Vincent A. Martinez has/had a AR-15 assault rifle with TWO 60 round magazine drums and in excess of 2,500 rounds of ammo.
What was Martinez going to do with his AR-15 assault rifle and TWO 60 round magazine drums and 2,500 rounds of .223 caliber ammo. Detective Keats at the Sarasota County Sheriff Dept deserves a huge round of applause and thanks from the Community. It was Detective Keats that led the investigation and it was Keats that arrested Vincent Martinez before he could use his AR-15 assault rifle fitted with a 60 round drum and 125 boxes of ammo.
As of Wednesday July 29th, 2020 the Sarasota Herald Tribune and ABC-7 MySuncoast News have not reported on what Vincent Martinez was doing in front of Marina Jacks caught on video stating "6 MILLION IS NOT ENOUGH (JEWS)" and holding his "ISRAEL COMMITS WHITE GENOCIDE" sign on June 24th, 2020, or the fact that Martinez was stock piling thousands of rounds of .223 caliber ammo for his AR-15 rifle with a 60 round magazine drum PRIOR to his spray painting swastikas on the Jewish Temples (second time) on July 15th, 2020.
Vincent Martinez appears to have a shaved head and a muscular build on April 2nd and then a full head of hair on July 15th. Apparently Vincent Martinez worked at a local gym, possibly as a trainer. The Sheriff Dept investigation revealed Martinez used a nearby ATM shortly after the first incident on April 2nd wearing the same clothing seen in security footage. Detectives also linked Martinez to the second two incidents on July 15th through cell phone records that placed him of the Jewish temples property.
Vincent Martinez certainly exhibited vile anti-semitism in his rants caught on video outside Marina Jack Bayfront Dr on June 24th, 2020. He sure fits the profile of the guy spray painting swastikas on the Jewish temple on April 2nd, 2020. But why go back a second time to the same place when he knows the cops already have him on surveillance video and most likely were working on facial recognition? Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Immigration and Customs Enforcement have turned state driver's license databases into a facial-recognition gold mine. The black and white photo seen here of Vincent Martinez appears to be his Florida drivers license photo as he has/had no prior criminal record for a mugshot photo. Records indicate facial recognition is deeply embedded within modern law enforcement, and routinely used to track down suspects in felonies like cashing stolen checks.
Vincent A. Martinez DOB 06/27/99 arrested in connection with Spray Painting Swastikas on Sarasota Jewish Temples. 1st attack Case #20-56458 July 15, 2020 at 2:15 am Temple Emanu-El 151 McIntosh Road Sarasota. 2nd attack Case #20-56459 15 minutes later July 15, 2020 at 2:30 am Temple Sinai at 4631 South Lockwood Ridge Road Sarasota, which is in the South Gate Ridge sub-division. It is a 13 min drive, door to door, from Temple Emanu-El straight shot going south down McIntosh Road to Proctor Rd turn right, then turn right on 4631 South Lockwood Ridge Road to Temple Sinai. On Wednesday morning July 15, 2020 between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m., the suspect is seen in surveillance footage first walking onto the grounds of Temple Emanu-El at 151 McIntosh Road. A short time later the same suspect approached Temple Sinai at 4631 South Lockwood Ridge Road apparently on his way home to the 5800 block of Driftwood Ave Sarasota. At both Jewish Temple locations he spray-painted multiple swastikas and other graffiti hate messages (KILL KIKES) causing thousands of dollars in damage. See Sheriff Dept arrest report CLICK HERE.
Vincent A. Martinez, DOB 06/27/99, arrested in connection with Spray Painting Swastikas on Sarasota Jewish Temples. He is as a white male in 22 years old approximately 6’ 6” tall at 220 lbs with buzz cut dark hair and a large muscular build. During both incidents overnight, he was wearing a blue baseball cap, dark long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, and gray athletic shoes. His face was also covered with a red bandana. A similar incident occurred on April 2nd, 2020 at Temple Emanu-El. “Very disheartening, very sad and it kind of makes you very angry as well,” said Howard Tevlowitz, the CEO of the Jewish Federation Sarasota-Manatee. “Hate is hate and it’s important to state that this type of behavior is not OK and this type of behavior leads to physical action. It’s all linked to one another and this is the moment to stand up and say, ‘enough is enough,’ and for us, enough is enough.” In this case, standing up to hate could mean the courage to identify and stop the man seen at the scene of both crimes.
