A Florida man wanted on several charges was arrested Thursday night after deputies found him livestreaming on Instagram, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies said they arrested Kevin Gaines Jr. after the Crime Suppression Team developed information about the vehicle he was driving and a deputy spotted the vehicle.

Investigators said Gaines was livestreaming on Instagram inside the home at the time. A deputy then pointed a spotlight into a window, which could be seen in the video before it abruptly ended.

Deputies and DeLand police officers surrounded the house, and Gaines surrendered, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Gaines was taken into custody, deputies said.

During a search of the house, three firearms were recovered, along with a fourth that was found underneath a vehicle in the driveway, deputies said.

Gaines was arrested on a charge of possession of a firearm by a delinquent, along with warrants for grand theft auto, criminal mischief and having no valid driver’s license.

Gaines also faces previous charges of discharging a firearm from a vehicle, two counts of possession of a firearm by a delinquent, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement and having no valid driver’s license.
