Donald & Steven Muncey - Brothers molest children together

COCOA, Fla. -- A yard sale featuring children's toys at a home where a convicted sex predator and his brother, who has also served time for harming a child, live has prompted outrage in the community.

For the last several months, the merchandise has been set outside a home on Green Hill Street in Cocoa where Donald Muncey lives.

Muncey was convicted nearly four years ago of molesting a girl under the age of 12, Local 6's Kimberly Houk reported.

Muncey and his brother, Steven, who also served time for a lewd and lascivious act on a girl underthe age of 16, are both living with their mother in the house.

Some neighbors said they are concerned that the sale of the items in their yard is just a lure for more potential victims.

"It is scary to even see their kids up there with them to buy stuff," neighbor Jim Youngman said.

"It is not a real comforting thing knowing a kid is within so many feet of a predator like that," a resident told Houk.

Local 6 reported that Muncey is forbidden to be near children. However, neighbors said Muncey had been selling the toys in his front yard in recent weeks.

The mother of the men said a Brevard County probation officer who stopped by Friday said she is allowed to sell toys in her front yard as long as her sons stay inside.

A deputy has been driving by the home to make sure the Muncey brothers do not venture outside.
