The following incident and arrest information was compiled using official documents, reports and affidavits obtained from government and law enforcement agencies. This feature is not inclusive. It is a sampling of reported incidents in the Flagler County area. Note: The U.S. legal system provides the presumption of innocence to those charged with a crime until guilt is proven in a court of law.
An Attempted Home Invasion. Twice.
A deputy was dispatched to 2899 North Ocean Shore On August 13 in reference to a burglary. The victim there told the deputy that at 2 p.m. she heard her 6-year-old daughter screaming that someone was climbing into the bedroom window.
The victim said that she went into her daughter’s bedroom and observed a male attempting to come through the window. She described the suspect as white male with short red hair, a blue shirt and blue pants in his mid-twenties. She also said he was dirty and had a tattoo of a cross on the back of his neck. She said she screamed at the male and he left. She secured the window and did not call 911 at that time. She said she does not know who the male is. At approximately 5:45 p.m., she again heard her daughter screaming from her bedroom. This time she observed the same white male attempting to enter the window. Jones then grabbed a crowbar and chased the male along the fence line in the rear of the property. The male jumped the fence. She also stated that her two other young children were in the residence at the time. Lifting fingerprints was unsuccessful. A K-9 search was fruitless. A neighbor said she did not see or hear anything.
Vandalism at Ralph Carter Park
A deputy responded to a call at Ralph Carter Park on Aug. 14 at 8:50 p.m., where he discovered several tire tracks in the center of the soccer fields as well as a large soccer goal that appeared to have been knocked over. It was determined that sometime throughout the night and early morning hours from Aug. 13 to Aug. 14, an unknown vehicle entered the fields at the park. Once on the field, it appears as though the vehicle did several “doughnuts” on several portions of the field, causing heavy damage to the sodding. A large soccer goal was also observed to be turned upside down in the northeast corner of the field. It appeared as if the soccer goal had been moved from its original location in the field, possibly by several people or by a vehicle. No suspect or vehicle information was gained. There are several surveillance cameras throughout the park that may have recorded the suspect(s) and suspect vehicle responsible for all of the damage, but those cameras, and the footage, are managed by the Palm Coast city administration, not the sheriff’s office, and city employees were off on Sunday. An email was sent to Capt. Marc Carman of the Sheriffs Office, who also has access to the footage during regular business hours, to review the footage.
Rear Passenger Window Smashed, Purse Snatched
Sometime overnight between Aug. 20 and Aug. 21, someone smashed the rear passenger window of a Dodge Avenger at 33 Edge Lane in Palm Coast and stole a purse that had been in the back seat. The purse belonged to a woman on vacation in South Florida. She’d left the car in the driveway–along with the purse and contents including a black alligator print wallet containing her driver’s license and multiple credit cards, and a Kodak digital camera.
Aggravated Assault and Battery
Barry Golden, 49, of Slipper Trail in Palm Coast, was taken to jail the evening of Aug. 21 following an argument with his girlfriend that involved alleged threats to his girlfriend’s life, the wielding of a knife, and the punching of several holes in the hallway wall. A deputy counted 20 holes. The couple and five children, all of them teens, live at the house. Three of the children are the woman’s, two are Golden’s. Golden was taken to Florida Hospital Flagler first, where he was cleared of his injuries, before being taken to jail, where he was held on $2,000 bond, which he posted.
Swiped Wallet at McCharacter’s
A 20-year-old woman reported that at 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 18 she was playing pool at McCharacter’s, the bar, when a bouncer came up to her to check her l.D. When she went into her purse to get it, she noticed that her woman’s, black leather Coach wallet containing $25 in cash her Florida Driver’s license, her Social Security card, some business cards and a Daytona State debit MasterCard were missing. The wallet was valued at $50. The woman had used the wallet at the bar when she’d taken some money out of it. No suspects or witnesses.
A Party, a Burglary, a Vanished Flatscreen TV
On Aug. 18 at 6:45 a.m. a deputy was dispatched to 165 Plain View Drive, Unit A, in Palm Coast in reference to a burglary. The deputy made contact with the victim, Kenneth Keene, 50, and three other adults inside of the house: Francesca Ursino, 35, Shannon Price, 35, and Patrick Neumoyer, 39. Keene told the deputy that someone had entered his home while he was asleep and taken his flat screen television from the living room. Keen said he and his friends had a late night of partying and drinking but he remembers the television being there before he fell asleep around 2 a.m. Both Price and Neumeyer concurred. Price said there were two large dogs in the house. One slept in the room with her and Neumeyer and the other in the living room. Both Price and Neumeyer agreed neither dog barked throughout the morning. Ursino said the group partied until at least 2 a.m. with multiple verbal and physical confrontations.
Ursino said everyone was pretty drunk but she remembered the front door being broken during a confrontation between Keene and Neumeyer around 11 p.m. Ursino said Price and Neumeyer went to sleep around 2:30 a.m. and Keene shortly thereafter. Ursino said she and the dog laid on the couch in the living room watching television. At approximately 4:30 a.m. a black man known only as DJ knocked on the front door and requested to come in. (All the others in this story so far are white.) Ursino remembered seeing the man during the day at the house, believed him to be a friend of Keene and allowed him to come in. DJ sat and talked for approximately 10 minutes and left. Ursino said the television was there when she went to bed at 5 a.m. Ursino said she believed DJ lived near Keene because he always came to the residence on foot. Neither neighbor provided information about DJ. All said they did not know anyone by that name. Keene said he was sure DJ lived close by and he only knew him from the neighborhood. No further damage was observed at the residence. While verifying the identity and wanted status of Shannon Price, it was discovered she carried an active warrant out from Flagler County for violation of probation, signed and issued by Judge Atack on April 12. Price was taken into custody and transported to the inmate facility without incident.
$221.50 in quarters stolen from an Air Serv vacuum machine at 5332 N. Ocean Shore Blvd. The theft was believed to have been committed by a former employee of the business there, because the machine showed no sign of forced entry. A similar report was made of a theft of $323.50 in quarters from the vacuum at the Kangaroo Gas Station at 1501 Palm Coast Parkway. In that second case a service technician for Air Serve was unable to say when exactly the theft had occurred, but that the unknown suspect had acquired the coins with a key.
$221.75 More Than a Stolen Tag
On Aug. 19 a deputy responded to 12 Bill Place in Palm Coast in reference to a stolen tag. The complainant reported that her 2001 Subaru was delivered to John’s auto parts and scrap at 3626 N. U.S.1 on April 4, 2011, to have it junked. The complainant never removed the tag from the Subaru. Recently, she received a letter from the state of Florida, billing her for multiple pay toll violations on Florida highways. The letter stated that an unknown vehicle with the Subaru’s tag has been passing through tolls illegally. The bill was for $221.75. There is no further information on the unknown vehicle that is now bearing the Subaru’s tag.
An Unleashed Dog and a Bite
On August 14th 8:58 p.m. the Sheriffs Office received a call from 2312 Lancewood Street, in Bunnell in reference to an animal bite. The deputy reports that after making contact with Sean Wells and Dessirae Cohn, Wells told him that at 8:28 p.m. he was riding his bicycle on Lancewood Street in the 1,000 block. The deputy continues: “At this time he stated a female was walking down the road with several dogs unleashed. He further stated that one of the dogs came after him as he-was riding his bicycle and bit him on his right ankle. S. Wells described the dog that bit him as being red in color and the breed appeared to be a bloodhound as it had big ears. S. Wells stated the female never attempted to call the dogs away from him. He further stated this female appeared intoxicated. S. Wells advised me that the female and the dog stay at an address located at 4949 Canal Avenue. I then went to this address and attempted contact with the female. All attempts to contact any occupants of this residence were unsuccessful. I did observe a red bloodhound type dog tied up in the front yard. I left a message with Animal Control and notified them of the above. It should be noted S. Wells refused medical treatment on scene. I further observed that S. Wells’s right ankle had a minor puncture wound.”
