Add a heading

Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies made 11 arrests last weekend between 6 a.m. on Friday, November 24, 2023, and 6 a.m. on Monday, November 27, 2023, and handled 749 calls for service and made 98 traffic stops.

“It was a relatively calm Thanksgiving weekend, but that didn’t stop some criminals from ending up in the Green Roof Inn,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Thank you to all our hard-working deputies who spent their Thanksgiving Weekend protecting and serving our residents instead of spending time with their families.”

On Friday, FCSO received an anonymous tip about a juvenile threatening to kill his family. In messages sent on Snapchat, a 13-year-old male had threatened to murder his family. Contact was made by deputies with several juveniles involved and the suspect.

The suspect stated he had sent the messages for attention and did not actually have a plan to kill his family. He was placed under arrest for Written Threats to Kill and processed at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility and then turned over to the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.

“Even if it is a joke or for attention, we take any written threat to kill or do harm very seriously,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “The law does not allow for a ‘joke’ exception when you get caught. Parents, remember to be the Sheriff in your home and teach your children not to make jokes or seek attention in this manner. In this case, he got a lot of attention!”

On Saturday night, a citizen called FCSO Communications to report unknown males inside a duplex under construction. Upon deputies’ arrival, two males were seen attempting to hide inside the residence while a third male came to the front door. The males were also observed hiding alcoholic beverages.

The male who answered the door was identified as 35-year-old Mario Dominguez Diaz. The other two males located hiding inside the residence were identified as 18-year-old Joel Dominguez and a juvenile male.

In side A of the duplex, where the males’ vehicle was parked, deputies located several holes in the walls, silly string sprayed on appliances, a toilet filled with concrete, concrete splashed onto the walls, and other damages.

Mario Diaz was placed under arrest for Burglary of a Dwelling, Criminal Mischief, and Causing a Child to Commit a Delinquent Act. Joel Dominguez was arrested for Burglary of a Dwelling, Criminal Mischief, and Resisting an Officer Without Violence. The 16-year-old juvenile male was arrested for Burglary of a Dwelling, Criminal Mischief, and Resisting an Officer Without Violence. The juvenile was processed at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility and turned over to a parent by DCF. Both adults remain in the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility on $11,000 bond each.

“Just because a home is under construction doesn’t mean you can go inside a damage the property or party,” added Sheriff Staly. “If you don’t own the property stay out or you will get arrested. I want to thank the observant citizen for notifying us.”
