Two of the men arrested were from Naples: 53-year-old Misael Gonzalez and 43-year-old Ivan Gutierrez Miranda. Another two were from Miami

There is also a fifth person at large: Yosmel Betancourt Morales, 32, of Lake Worth, Florida.

“The owner of them still had the GPS device on the trailer, and they weren’t located yet. So, therefore, because of the pings, we were able to pinpoint exactly where those ones were,” said Sergeant Christopher James Kearney with CCSO.
