Lumpkins Cousins and D’Corius Hill Arrested in R-Section Burglary Ring

| December 7, 2012

The cop chase that resulted in an overturned SUV on Royal Palms Parkway Monday morning—and the brief lockdown of Rymfire Elementary school—has led to the arrest of four people in all, including a set of cousins and a man wanted for a series of burglaries in Flagler County.

D’Corius Hill, 21, of 96 Wellshire Lane, was arrested late Tuesday on eight outstanding Flagler County warrants dealing with two Palm Coast burglaries in the last two weeks. Cousins Raymond Lumpkins and Ebony Lumpkins  are both charged with dealing in stolen property and were arrested Thursday afternoon. Detectives said the two were pawning the items stolen in the burglaries.

The Lumpkins cousins live together at 94 Wellshire Lane in Palm Coast, along with D’Corius Hill, 21. But they also have a 411 South Anderson Street in Bunnell as an address.

Here’s what detectives pieced together.

The morning of November 28, Ebony Lumpkins, 20, went to Lucky Gold Buyers, a pawn shop on North State Street in Bunnell (also known as U.S. 1), and sold three 14-karat gold items, including a necklace, in exchange for $800. She presented her Florida driver’s license. And she placed her thumb print on the pawn transaction form and signed it.

Eight days later Lumpkins was sitting across from a Flagler County detective at the sheriff’s office’s Criminal Investigation Division. She first told him that she found the jewelry in the grass while walking at Ralph Carter Park, but then relented and said she’d gotten the stuff from Jeremiah Harris on Nov. 26. She said he’d meant it as a birthday present. And he’d told her: no matter what, don’t pawn it.

November 28 was a busy day for Lumpkins visits to the pawn shop. That same day, about two hours after his cousin had been there, 25-year-old Raymond Lumpkins went to Lucky Gold Buyers and pawned a $170 gold ring, identifying himself the same way his cousin had—driver’s license, thumb print. There was an inscription inside the ring: “SAT&PAT 7/752.” When a detective asked Raymond Lumpkins where he’d found the ring, Lumpkins said while walking to a store.

Hill was at the hospital this week. He’s the man who was at the wheel of the SUV that briefly led cops on a chase out of the R Section on Monday, before the SUV flipped on Royal Palms Parkway just west of Rymfire Drive. There were warrants out for him, for burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and for criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools, fleeing or attempting to elude cops, and driving on a suspended license. The counts against him are third-degree felonies.

Arrest reports clarify what had happened in the past two weeks in incidents involving Hill and Jeremiah Harris, who was arrested Monday after the chase (Harris was on probation for burglary). Hill’s name had not been released at the time, as cops were still investigating a series of burglaries they believed him to be involved in.

Hill and Harris, according to an arrest report, had allegedly burglarized a home at 12 Renn Lane on Nov. 26, taking three flat-screen televisions, jewelry, and a large jar with loose change. On Monday (Dec. 3) they were allegedly attempting to burglarize a house at 33 Renshaw Drive when they were spotted by a cop walking across the lawn of the house.

Witnesses and residents of the properties on Renshaw and Renwood Lane, the street directly behind Renshaw, told detectives that the morning of Dec. 4, they’d seen two black men fitting the description of Hill and Harris between the two properties.

As of Friday evening (Dec. 7), Hill remains at the Flagler County jail on $24,000 bond. So does Raymond Lumpkins, on $2,500 bond. Ebony Lumpkins has posted $5,000 bond. Harris, too, has posted $2,500 bond.

    What a family.

    Instead of my usual smart-assed comments about Palm Coast being ahead of schedule by turning into Holly Hill North 20 years ahead of schedule before they sold out all the Platted Sub-Divisions, I’d like to take the time to piss off all of the Black readers here at Flagler Live.

    Reading the above article, these kids could be yours. And at the risk of sounding like I am siding with the Crackers, please consider one thing.

    Maybe if their parents hadn’t saddled them with their Afro-Centric names they wouldn’t be in the trouble they are in today. When you calm down, finish the post.

    Okay? Think about this. We live here in Crackerstan, which not only means The South, but in these jobless times you need every possible advantages now to get the shittiest jobs in all of America. By saddling these kids with these names, you pretty much guaranteed that come job hunting time, their resumes will end up in the trash can two out of three times. Especially if the kid turns out to be intelligent and ambitious and looking for an executive position. The only exception to this rule I can think of is Condoleeza Rice, and even she had to sell her soul to the Republicans to make it big. None of us want that for our kids.

    I have seen this myself because I have a name that sounds like it could belong to a black guy. In the Navy, I was lowered onto the deck of a Guided Missile Cruiser in the Tonkin Gulf from a cable tied to a Chinook helicopter with Boiler Tech name of Sam Washington. We were met on the mess deck, still tingling from the ride and the drop, by a BT Chief who looked at us and started laughing. The old Southern Boy, said “Smith, we weren’t sure about you but we knew what to expect from Mr. Washington here.”. He spent about an hour telling Sam about how hot, dangerous and miserable life was in a 1200 PSI boiler room and how it would be so much easier if he’d just agree to transfer to Supply and be a cook, even though he passed BT-A school with flying colors. He refused and in four years he made BT2 and was in charge of the aft boiler room.

    Now I know this doesn’t make me Malcolm, but it did open my young eyes to the fact that there is racism in the world and it can affect your life and career no matter how good you are at your job. It’s not right, but it’s an undeniable fact.

    We all want to give our kids every advantage we can to send him out into the world, and all I am saying is this is one way you can do it. They’re your kids and I respect your right to call them whatever gives you pride or a sense of history. You don’t have to name them Buffy or Travis, but I hope you take my words in the spirit they were intended and think about what your children will have to live with for the rest of their lives and more importantly, where..

    Or talk all of your white friends into naming their kids Shaliqua and Ja’Von to really mess up their heads in Human Resources.

    The Runnell Section of Palm Coast again.

    • really? says:

      The article stated the addresses for the suspects were Bunnell and the “W” section. They burglarized the “R” section. What do you mean the “Runnell Section”. It seems to me the “W” section burglars victimized the “R” section residents.

  6. Clint says:

    And the government can’t understand why America wants to “ARM” themselves. I have decided to extend my SWALE all the way around my home, since I can’t get the city to maintain the 8 foot water depth in it. Might as well create a “MOAT” and build a few towers onto my house for lookout post and defense positions. Ahhhh…my own castle ! Can I get a good contractor to build me an old fashion “draw bridge” over my moat ?
