Helicopters were flying over the Pine Grove section of Palm Coast Sunday morning as Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies searched for two suspects in connection with an armed home burglary on Pine Grove Drive. One suspect was arrested and taken to the Flagler County jail. The second is still at large. He was last seen fleeing the area around Belle Terre Parkway and Whiteview Parkway.

Deputies responded around 10:15 a.m. after receiving a report of two black males kicking in the front door of the unoccupied home and removing items. Witnesses said one of the men had a gun.

When deputies arrived on the scene, the men fled in a vehicle that they crashed a short time later on Belle Terre Parkway, near Whiteview. Both jumped from the vehicle, with one running east bound and the other westbound.

Flagler County’s FireFlight and Volusia Air One helicopters assisted in the search. One suspect was apprehended by Deputy Jonathan Welker and K-9 Blu. He has been identified as Markis Flournoy, 18, of Daytona Beach. He was being treated at Florida Hospital for a bite wound suffered during the apprehension. He will be charged with armed burglary to an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft and resisting arrest when he is transported to the Flagler County Inmate Facility.

The second suspect remains at large. The occupants of the home have returned and were in the process of doing an inventory to determine what items were stolen.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 313-4911.

    GREAT JOB F L on reporting the facts now if you could only do this on all you “news” reports. I do think you should have your opinion section just post it as opinion and not try to sell it as a real news report.

  2. FlaglerLive says:

    Some guy, thanks for your opinion.

  3. starfyre says:

    they shall be forgiven-i pray for there forgiveness

  4. County Worker says:

    i bet you won’t pay for there forgiveness when its your front door they kick down. I commend you FlaglerLive for bringing to light what really goes on in our community. As for starfyre, there is no forgiveness for an act like this. There is only hope that this type of scum picks the wrong house and gets a bullet as a welcome.

    Kudos to Deputy Welker and K-9 Blu. This is the second time this week that old Blu has gotten his teeth into a runaway perp.

    Should the deputies apologize?

    How about just saying “One Caught” ?

  10. starfyre says:

    i forgive the one they caught

    and the one they didnt

  11. Bn3 says:

    “Only one is caught”. This site always looks at things in a negative light.

  12. Dorothea says:

    Try reading it this way. “Only one was caught”. Residents of Pine Grove area are now warned that one of the perps had a gun according to witnesses. Was it the one who was caught or the one who got away?

  13. ItsMe says:

    Try reading it this way?? So you are in agreement then. Thanks.

  14. Dorothea says:

    Yes, we agree. One got away and the people that live in the area were warned that one perp, possibly armed, was still on the run. That’s neither a negative or positive headline, however. It’s more like a warning to residents.
