On March 21, Juan Miranda, Dominguez’s boyfriend, called the Jacksonville Police in Florida and informed them his pregnant girlfriend took all of his guns (5 weapons) and his Mustang. When he tracked her phone and realized she was in New Jersey, he also called the Little Ferry Police Department and told them the same thing. Police in Florida told him that Dominguez technically did not steal the guns or car because they were a couple who lived together.
