Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the late night break-in at Leah’s Jewelry and Pawn on Old Kings Road North in Palm Coast around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Deputies responding to a call there found the front door of the business had been broken out. While on the scene, deputies observed a man wearing all black and carrying a black bag walk around the south side of the building.
When the man saw deputies, he ran, jumping a chain link fence where he disappeared into the woods. A search was launched using K-9 units and Volusia County Sheriff’s Office Air one, but he was not located.
Deputies said a brick had been used to break out the door window. It appeared that nothing was taken in the incident.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office at 386/313-4911.
