Three Teens Face Felony Charges for Car Burglary Spree in Palm Coast’s B Section

| July 20, 2012

Car locks are a terrible thing to waste.

A Dell laptop and a Motorolla cell phone were stolen from a Hyundai Sonata on Bracken Lane. An inhaler, a media inverter cable and an mp3 player were stolen from a Ford Focus on Bradmore Lane. A CD player was stolen from an Isuzu Stylus on Beachway Drive. A brown Coach purse was stolen from a Ford Taurus on Bracken Lane.

And on goes the list of electronics and other valuables stolen out of vehicles parked in their Palm Coast driveways last week–and for the most part recovered in the attic of 49 Berkshire Lane, after Flagler County sheriff’s deputies searched the attic with Julie Johnson’s consent. Johnson is the mother of two boys, Marcus Chamblin, 17, and D’Shawn Hosang, 16, who now face several felony charges of car burglaries they allegedly conducted the night of July 11.

Hosang was arrested July 12 in connection with nine of the break-ins on Beachway, Bradmore and Bracken Lanes. Chamblin Thursday was being held at the Division of Juvenile Justice in Daytona Beach on unrelated charges. A third teen, Darius Harvey, 16, of 27A Bunkerview drive, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on similar charges. Hosang and Harvey were also sent to the juvenile detention facility.

Hosang’s backpack, when located, contained a progress report bearing his name, along with a stolen CD player and a bag of change that had also been reported stolen by a resident of Beechway Lane.

Sheriff’s Deputy Nate Smith said the three spent the overnight hours of July 11 and early morning hours of July 12 breaking into vehicles, according to a sheriff’s office release. All three teens may face additional charges as more victims are contacted.

Deputies said in all the burglaries, the vehicles had been left unlocked on the driveways. That’s the case with the majority of break-ins in Palm Coast and Flagler County.

“Both Darius Harvey and S’Shawn showed integrity and were cooperative and respectful throughout the lengthy investigation,” an arrest report reads, “while Marcus Chamblin showed no loyalty or remorse towards the victims of these crimes or toward his brother and friend.”

    The caption on the picture reads: “car locks are a terrible thing to waste” I remember when you could sleep with your front door not only unlocked but wide open! These kids never learned to keep their hands to themselves and do not take what doesn’t belong to you! You can’t even leave your garage door open with you are in the house anymore. Just SAD.

      People need to start taking precautions. This is not 50 years ago when people had values and morals. PC is a complete crapshoot due in major part to the economic failures experienced here and parents not actually RAISING their children.

        It was not 50 yrs ago when I remember being able to leave my door open like that and not having to worry about anything but bugs coming in my home…..

    Say it ain’t so that these three future leaders of America were caught doing bad. I’m sure their parent’s feel that these darlings could do nothing wrong! Society is picking on them. Ah, but don’t worry parents, your kids will be released quickly as overcrowed jails and weak juvenile justice can’t accommodate them.

    If these kids cannot make bail or are put into a jail cell , the parents should be in there with then.. Stop blaming sociaty and making excuses. Fess up your kids need some home schooling on whats right and wrong..

    From Saturday September 8, 2012 to Sunday September 9, 2012 my tattoo kit was stolen from my car on my driveway. I always lock my doors. I can’t think of anyone who knew that it was in the car who would just steal it, so I am guessing it’s probably a case similar to this one. I have no job and my tattoo kit was the only way I made any money. My dad was the one who passed away in the motorcycle accident and I can’t believe someone would do this to me now. My tattoo kit has a bunch of “zumiez” stickers all over it and other stickers as well. It has 4 machines and a dual power supply. If anyone sees it please comment! Thank you!
