Florida sheriffs are hunting for three men who were caught on camera entering a house with a gun, then carrying a body out of an alleged drug den.

Xavier Antonio Johnson, 29, from St. Petersburg, had rented an Airbnb on April 8 in Davenport, 85 miles east of his hometown.

Johnson and his associates were believed to be selling marijuana from the Acorn Court house, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said.

On April 13, three unknown men entered the house – one of them carrying a gun – and shot Johnson, according to deputies.

The three men were then caught on camera carrying Johnson’s body out of the house.

‘We’re seeking the identities of three men in a homicide investigation,’ the Sheriff’s Office tweeted.

They published video of the men leaving the house while carrying the body, and still photos of the trio.

‘Here are photos of the three unknown men we’d like to identify and speak with regarding the homicide of 29-yr-old Xavier Johnson,’ the office wrote on Facebook. 

‘If you have any information about this murder please call us at 863-298-6200 or contact Heartland Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous and be eligible for a $5,000 cash reward.’ 

Grady Judd, the 68-year-old sheriff of Polk County, has served with the force since 1972, and in 2020 became the first sheriff in Polk’s 160-year history to be elected to five terms.

When the sheriffs shared details of the manhunt on Facebook on Saturday, residents responded with: ‘Grady will find them.’

The department also further detailed how the public can help, writing in a comment: ‘With ongoing criminal investigations we are very, VERY choosy with how much information (and photos and videos) we release. 

‘These photos show three men we want to identify – we showed pics of the one carrying the cross body bag in 2 diff [sic] photos so that you can see his arm tattoo (it doesn’t show in the photo where he has the bag). 

‘He is the one without any facial hair. Refer back to the video and you’ll see all three of them.’
