Over the course of this last weekend, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office  (FCSO) made 16 arrests, handled 975 calls, and made almost 200 traffic stops.

“I don’t know if it’s the summer heat, but people are letting their anger get the best of them,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “If you have an attitude or anger problem, go see a therapist. We see this trend time and time again, and it always ends with an arrest and a visit to the Green Roof Inn.”

On Friday, a Palm Coast woman, known as Chrystal Lee, was arrested for burglary of the America’s Best Contacts and Eyeglasses store on SR 100. Deputy Quinteri responded to the call on Friday when store employees said there was a possible break-in the night before. The employees of the store told deputies, that they suspected Chrystal Lee, who was recently fired, due to previously reported threatening behavior. The store was ransacked and threatening notes were found all throughout the building. Deputy Quinteri went to Lee’s residence, where stolen property was visible in plain view. This allowed the General Assignment detectives to obtain a search warrant for Lee’s home, where they recovered the stolen property.  Lee confessed to the burglary and has been arrested and charged with Stalking, Grand Theft between $750-$5,000, and Burglary of an Unoccupied Structure. She is being held on a $7,500 bond.

Sunday, the FCSO arrested a man who battered his neighbor over a trash dispute. Deputy Hirschi responded to the call regarding the physical altercation on West County Road 90, where the victim was bleeding from their nose. The victim had gotten into an argument with their neighbor, identified as Robert Davis 65 yrs old, because he was dumping yard waste onto their side of the property. The victim did admit to getting loud with Davis, who responded by punching the victim in their face, causing some minor injuries to the nose. Davis was arrested and charged with Battery of a Person over 65. He is being held on a $2,500.
