FCSO Arrests 2 Teens In Connection With The ‘K-Section’ Vehicle Burglaries

Palm Coast, FL – Two teens have been arrested after an attempted traffic stop revealed they were driving a stolen vehicle containing items from the overnight “K-Section” vehicle burglaries.

At around 5 AM on Friday morning, Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies tried to conduct a traffic stop on a stolen Nissan Altima. The vehicle initially sped away but was later found after it crashed into a ditch on Panda Bear Lane in Bunnell at around 6 AM.

The occupants of the vehicle fled on foot so deputies set up a search perimeter. At around 9:40 AM, the suspects were arrested after they were tracked to the 5000 block of CR 305.

According to the FCSO, 18-year-old Jaylan Braswell and a 16-year-old boy will be charged with Grand Theft Auto, Burglary of a Conveyance, and Grand Theft over $300. The 16-year-old will face an additional charge for violating his juvenile post-commitment probation for a prior offense.

Deputies found marijuana and stolen goods from multiple vehicle burglaries in the Quail Hollow “K-Section” of Palm Coast inside the stolen vehicle. Braswell has been booked into the Flagler County Detention Center and the 16-year-old has been transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Daytona Beach.

“This was great police work on the part of our deputies,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “Not only did they locate the stolen vehicle but they were able to track the suspects, arrest them and solve burglaries. This is another example of a broken juvenile justice system and why ‘home confinement’ of youthful offenders does not work and leads to them becoming adult offenders.”
