The two felons were later identified as Arkimase Divinard, 22, and Joel Junior Aime, 23 and they are career criminals. They were apprehended using the dashcam footage in the truck as well as the “Find My iPhone” app after stealing the driver’s phone.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office released the shocking footage on Wednesday that shows the two men robbing the driver on Jan. 13.
Divinard can be seen in the video holding a gun to the driver’s neck and taking his phone before his partner goes into the back of the truck to steal packages. Surveillance video shows that after he robbed the man, he escorted the driver into the van’s cargo area and began taking packages as well. Police believe they took approximately ten packages from the truck according to WESH.
The Amazon driver was not hurt in the incident and it didn’t take long to track down the two alleged thieves.
Between the two of them, Divinard and Aime share 85 felony charges and 11 felony convictions.
Divinard was most recently busted for carjacking without a firearm/deadly weapon and served three years in prison for it according to Florida jail records. He got out in November 2022 and it didn’t take him long to turn back to crime. Prior convictions include battery on a person above the age of 65 and robbery without a deadly weapon.
Records were unavailable for the other suspect going under the name Joel Junior Aime, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.
“We hope they will stay locked up for a long, long time,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office stated on social media.
A witness came forward and flagged down deputies after watching the robbery take place near the Caden Apartments at 1953 Americana Blvd, according to Fox 35 Orlando.
The driver told the police that he noticed a black male standing near the driver’s side of the truck after he finished a delivery. When he got inside the truck, a second black male entered the van’s cargo area and demanded the driver fork over his belongings while aiming a gun at him.
Divinard was reportedly the second man who demanded the driver’s password to his cell and his pin to his debit cards. He then searched the driver’s pockets for more items.
After the robbery, the two men fled the scene in a white van. Aime was identified in the dashcam footage and was later seen in a white Honda before being arrested.
Divinard was identified by his tattoos. The driver also gave deputies a screenshot of the “Find My iPhone” app, which revealed the location of his stolen phone at the suspect’s home address.
Both men have been arrested and are now behind bars. They were charged with robbery with a firearm, according to the sheriff’s office.
