According to reports, a Florida home invader’s guilty conscience ended up leading authorities to an older couple who had been viciously tied up and held hostage in their home for 2 days.
Aubrey Lumpkin, 46, of Jacksonville, called the cops Monday night and stated he was a “piece of s–t” who’d already “done horrible things,” according to the department.
He then informed the shocked officers that there would be an elderly couple in Green Cove Springs who needed urgent help.
“I’m a piece of s–t,” First Coast News reported. “I need medical assistance out here for an elderly couple. I’m turning myself in.”
According to First Coast News, police went to the location Lumpkin provided and discovered a man and his wife tied up, undernourished, and covered in feces.
Lumpkin, a convicted felon, provided cops with his location and was apprehended without incident.
The homeowners, both in their 70s, were discovered with lesions on their legs and arms from being bound in duct tape for 2 days, according to authorities.
Lumpkin told investigators that he and some other man arrived at the house last Saturday with the intent of robbing the elderly couple.
Lumpkin stated that he entered through the front door, while his accomplice entered through a back door.
According to officials, the pair then instructed the couple to the ground and Lumpkin sprayed two shots over their heads to deter them from yelling for help.
The men ended up finding the couple’s credit and ATM cards and pressured them to reveal their pin codes after binding them with duct tape.
According to cops, they took turns withdrawing a total of $3,000 from a nearby convenience store.
Lumpkin even admitted to the use of their car to make multiple drug purchases during the 48-hour fiasco.
He is accused of home invasion with a firearm, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm or ammunition by a convicted felon, and drug sale and delivery.
