A 33-year-old Palm Coast woman has been arrested following a home invasion robbery on Buttonwell Lane in Palm Coast.

On November 14, 2023, the victim contacted FCSO Communications to report a known female acquaintance had entered his residence through an unlocked door, pointed a firearm at him, and took approximately $50-$100 in cash from the dresser before fleeing from the residence in her vehicle. The victim also reported that the female had her three children in the vehicle with her when she fled from the residence.

A witness in the area also reported seeing the female park in front of the residence and retrieve a handgun from the front passenger side of the vehicle before entering the victim’s residence.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Community Policing Division, Investigative Services Division Major Case Unit, Problem Area Crime Enforcement Unit, and Real Time Crime Center coordinated efforts to locate the female suspect throughout the day and into the night. An arrest warrant was obtained and signed by Judge Totten.

The female suspect, Kiarra Strickland, was ultimately located at her residence on Slumber Path in Palm Coast and placed under arrest for Home Invasion Robbery with a Firearm. A search warrant was served by FCSO’s Major Case Unit where the gun and the stolen cash were recovered. During the investigation, Strickland admitted to the crime and was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where she is currently being held without bond.

“Not controlling your anger and then committing a crime to settle a score will get you arrested and a bed at the Green Roof Inn every time,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “And, she’s off the list for being the mother of the year by taking her children along with her to a home invasion that could have turned deadly. I commend our team that worked throughout the day and night to quickly solve this case and arrest the offender.”
