Flagler Sheriff’s Office Investigates Several Car Break-Ins, 3 House Thefts

By on August 11, 2017 in WNDB News

Palm Coast, FL – Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) is investigating “a rash” of overnight car break-ins, mostly in the Seminole Woods neighborhood of Palm Coast, and three residential break-ins.

The car break-ins involved locked and unlocked vehicles, and in two cases, the unknown suspects smashed the car windows. While the cases were centered in Seminole Woods, the burglaries of unlocked vehicles were reported all around Flagler County.

The majority of victims said their vehicles were rummaged through, but nothing was stolen. There were, however, some miscellaneous items stolen. There were also some residential burglaries in Flagler County where weapons, cash, and jewelry were stolen.

Sheriff’s Office deputies are actively looking to locate and identify stolen items, and the office has increased patrols in residential areas. The Investigative Services Division of the Sheriff’s Office is following up on all leads and potential suspects in these cases.

“If you see something suspicious, no matter how minor, please report it to the Sheriff’s Office,” says Sheriff Rick Staly. “If you hear glass breaking or car alarms, or if you see someone suspicious in your neighborhood, call us. While we are increasing our patrols, we cannot be in all places at all times. We need the community’s help.”

If you see something suspicious, the Flagler Sheriff’s Office asks that you please call the
Sheriff’s Office’s non-emergency line (386) 313-4911 or TIP@flaglersheriff.com or go to CrimeStoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477). You may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.00 for information leading to an arrest.

FCSO says it is also working closely with the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD), which FCSO says has also been seeing the same increase in car break-ins. On Thursday, DBPD also reported two car break-ins at the Planet Fitness at 1423 S. Nova Rd. in Daytona where car windows were shattered. Among the stolen items in those cases were a $400 iPad mini and two designer purses. Police are still trying to find the suspects.
