For the second time in a little over a year Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies executed a search warrant at 20 Rockne Lane, a 1,300-square-foot house in foreclosure between Whiteview Parkway and Rolling Sands Drive, and rounded up five occupants in the house Thursday evening, three of whom were soon released on their own recognizance and two others after posting bond.

The search was the result of complaints about the house, which has been poorly kept, including one call to the sheriff’s crime suppression tip line reporting possibly illegal activity at the house. The house had no running water and electric was being provided through an electrical meter that was not assigned to the home, according to deputies.

“The inside of this house is destroyed,” Sheriff Don Fleming said. “There are holes in the walls and stains on the carpets. This was used as a drug house where people came to do their drugs. It is a community menace and we will return until we close it down permanently.”

The house sold in September 2005 for $199,500. According to the property appraiser’s records, it is currently owned by the Federal National Mortgage Association of Beaverton, Ore., with Thomas Ksiezopolsk, one of the five people arrested, listed as the grantor. The house has an assessed value of $86,639 and has a homestead exemption.

The sheriff’s office reports that neighbors applauded when deputies arrested the five at sunset. Drug paraphernalia and prescription drugs were found inside the house.

The five arrested and their charges were:

Thomas Ksiezopolski, 35, of 20 Rockne Lane, Palm Coast, charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. This is Ksiezopolski’s third trip to the Flagler County jail since January, when he was arrested on nine drug related charges and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Kristen Westbrook, 28, of 1445 Cottonwood St. in Bunnell, charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Jacqueline Hess, 22, of 20 Rockne Lane, charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Andrew Wolagiewcz, 29, of 20 Rockne Lane, charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. This was Wolagiewcz’s ninth trip to the Flagler County jail since July 2007, on charges ranging from disorderly intoxication to resisting arrest without violence, loitering, burglary of an occupied house, drug charges, failure to appear, domestic violence, grand theft and probation violations.

Wesley Barham, 28, of 2982 North Oceanshore Drive, Apt. 30, in Palm Coast, charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

All five occupants of the home were taken to jail and had been released by Friday afternoon. Ksiezopolski posted $1,000 bond and Wolagiewcz posted $500.

    For some reason Flagler County doesn’t seem to be interested in protecting Flagler county by putting these people in jail for any real length of time. Slap on the wrist, scam the drug program and hit the strees again until they get caught again. Someone will get hurt someday I only hope it is not a child.

    Mark, what you said seems to be true. These people that were arrested in that house last month & in January, are still one the streets, they are still getting busted over & over again for drugs, they keep getting their court dates continued, they do other crimes. Unbelievable. Just think of what that 10 yr old child had to live with back in January. And is probably back living it again.

    The westbrook girl was killed in a horrific car accident today and almost took two good people with her . She lost control of her vehicle and hit another truck head on. She was not wearing her seat belt but Tim and AJ were. That is the only reason they survived. The accident occured on hwy 100 on nov.17th if you care to look it up. Too bad her son wont have a mother. FCSO is a joke. There was an incident at Espanola Cemetary some time back and the would not even fingerprint the beer cans they found . Thats cops 101. We dont need more cops, we need cops to actually do their jobs. It starts at the top.

    If there is a pastor micheal, Could he have been contributing to the problem? Who would hold a NA meeting in a place like that? spoons and needles laying around with grafiti all over the walls? Gotta watch those religous figures too. Most of them hide behind their bibles and never get punished for the crimes they commit.

    there is no pastor micheal…thats just mr. t.k. (former owner of the house) trying to scam u for your money.

    I’m just wondering why when ” Thomas Ksiezopolski ‘s” name is typed into the FCSO website inmate search, there is no record of him ever having been arrested. I see his photo on this page, and he shows up by typing in the date. However even copying/paste directly from the FCSO site (to ensure correct spelling of name) it shows 0 records of him. ???? Just thinkin’ about it and wondering why.

    His name does show up in the sheriff arrest records. I found him 3 times already. Thengo to flagler county clerk of courts to the court records & you can see what he is being chraged with & follow it along. His license is suspended now also, due to not paying traffic fines. You can do that with all the names of the people arrested, now & in January. But the guy that was arrested 9 times so far, you can’t find noting on him but arrest records.
    I have always said, people have to hit rock bottom before turning themselves around or hit bottom so hard that they won’t make it. Kristin did this. I am so sorry for her child. SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN HOME TAKING CARE OF HIM instead of being around the scum.
    I know the truck was a 05 dodge but does anyone know what color? Burgandy? If so, that was Tommys truck.

    I would like to give an update, about my client, who is mentioned in these posts. We would like to thank the FCSO not for arresting him but for RESCUING him. He has been clean and sober for well over a year now and is ironically a Substance Abuse Counselor. Upon our investigation of the allegations that were brought about my client , many new facts have been uncovered that are going to have a dramatic unfolding of the events that transpired in January and October of 2011. My client is pleased to announce that he is in the process of coordinating the vacant lot located at 18 ROCKNE LANE to start rebuilding his life and dreams that he lost during his darkest hours in his drug addiction. Traditional groundbreaking ceremonies will be held on March 18th, 2013. As events unravel and unfold further updates will be available.
