Third suspect arrested in home invasion case

Authorities arrested a third person Wednesday in connection with a May home invasion in which burglars held two young children with guns to their heads.

Lamont "Montana" Gaynor, 20, of Brooksville, was accused of grabbing an 18-month-old girl and holding her at gunpoint, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Gaynor and two other suspects, 22-year-old Devin Lamm and 19-year-old Nicholas Bernhardt, then forced the residents of the home into a bedroom, the report said.

No one was hurt, and the suspects fled with $100 in cash. A witness picked Gaynor's picture out of a group of photos, the report said.

Gaynor was charged with home invasion robbery with a weapon, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and false imprisonment.

He is being held at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $60,000 bail.
