Grenades, Cocaine, Pig, and Squatters Found in Miami Home UPDATE

Categories: Crime
What makes a house a home? Probably not cocaine, a shotgun, marijuana, grenades, a pig, and lack of ownership.

Police arrested a couple last night who they found squatting in a Miami home with all of those strange items and more. A bomb squad had to be called to remove the grenades.

Update: Police have identified the couple: 37-year-old Darin James Febus and 33-year-old Miriam Scott Bailey.

A New York man flew into town to visit his vacation home at 2021 SW 37th Ave. only to be greeted by the squatters. So the man, naturally, called police.

"The actual owners of this home are from New York and they came down, and it's possible that these individuals aren't legally renting here and can be squatters," Miami Police Sgt. Freddie Cruz told WSVN.

The home at 2021 SW 37th Ave
Police began investigating and found the following items in the home: six to ten grenades, unknown amounts of marijuana and cocaine, a few pet dogs, a handgun, a shotgun, and a pet pig.

The discovery of the grenades necessitated the closing of SW 37th Avenue between Alhambra Circle and Coral Way while a bomb squad was called in. The grenades were successfully removed from the house without incident. They'll be taken to a lab where they'll be tested to determine if they are still active.

The squatter couple, a man and a woman in their 30s, were arrested and now face drug and weapon charges. No word on the fate of the pig.

Update: The couple arrested has been identified as 37-year-old Darin James Febus and 33-year-old Miriam Scott Bailey. Febus faces one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count of grand theft, and one count of possession of cannabis. Bailey faces one count of grand theft and one count of possession of cannabis. Mug shots have not been released yet, but here's Febus's mug shot from August when he was arrested on battery charges.

Apparently there are Yuri Keyes wannabes out there, but I must set the record straight, as the below comment by "Yuri Keyes" was not posted by me "Yuri Keyes". If your name is actually, and legitimately Yuri Keyes, then I apologize, but I highly doubt it. Anyway, I (Yuri Keyes) have never met, and surely have never smoked weed with the folks mentioned in the above article. I have also never attended an OFTL pool party, or been involved in any 'PBA missions' for that matter. I take my reputation seriously enough to keep track of these things, and truly hope the below comment was posted by another Yuri Keyes, or on accident.

Yuri, get checked for herpes. Blunts are straight, but never when shared with a tweaker who looks like he got sandblasted in the face... Coherently, his last name rhymes with fetus.

Wow, I just smoked weed with that dude at the occupy ftlaud pool party. He was hanging out with that chick Miriam with the heart tat on her neck. Who woulda thought they are that hardcore. They woulda been good for the oftl action against pba that was planned that night. Stupid fucker that was voted for the pba mission got busted. Well at least nobody has gotten in trouble at the oftl command center yet. I told Alan we shoulda used them two for the pba thing.
