Earlier reporting below.
Palm Coast, FL – A 20-year-old Daytona Beach man is a suspect in an armed robbery at his uncle’s Palm Coast home. Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies say Alexander Devonte Brown knocked on his uncle’s door Tuesday (September 17) door. Once he was inside, he pulled out a handgun and forced his uncle to the floor. He then let two males wearing hoods nad with their face covered, into the home.
The trio reportedly stole more than $6,300 worth of jewelry and other items and $1,800 in cash from the residence. FCSO deputies secured the area and issued a ‘be on the look-out’ (BOLO) for Brown and the two other suspects to Volusia County and surrounding areas.
Today (September 19), FCSO detectives secured an arrest warrant for Brown for Home Invasion Robbery with a Firearm and Grand Theft with a bond of $110,000.00.
Brown is known to the Volusia Sheriff’s Office. He was taken into custody on August 27 under a Baker Act. Just two days later, he was charged with Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer and Resisting Arrest after assaulting a security officer during his stay in the hospital. Earlier this year, in April, he was arrested in Volusia County for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
“This is a dangerous guy who doesn’t think twice about using violence to get what he wants,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “I am thankful that the victim managed to escape this situation unharmed. We need to act fast before someone else is not so lucky. My advice to Alexander Brown and the other suspects is to turn yourselves in. We will find you and if you run, you will just go to jail tired.”
