On March 13, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Major Case Unit (MCU) arrested a Palm Coast man wanted on multiple charges of sex crimes against minors.

Last October, Alan Avellan Jr., 38, was arrested on charges of Showing Obscene Material to a Minor. Shortly after he posted a bond of $7,500, MCU began investigating yet another case against him. In the latest allegation, Avellan is accused of masturbating in a bed next to a 7-year-old juvenile and having her watch him while he performed it.

Last month, MCU obtained a search warrant for Avellan’s cell phone from which they recovered multiple videos and images of a different juvenile female showering.

A Felony Warrant was issued on March 13 for two counts of Video Voyeurism with a victim under 16, two counts of Unlawful Use of a Two-Way Communication Device, and one count of Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition. He was located and arrested on these new warrants while in the lobby of the Tax Collector’s Office in Flagler Beach and transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where he is currently being held on $250,000 bond.

“This disgusting pervert should have known that our dedicated Major Case Unit and the State Attorney’s Office wouldn’t stop until all of his victims see justice,” said Sheriff Rick Staly.  “These crimes are even more horrific and despicable than the original arrest.  While we’re glad he’s back in the Green Roof Inn, we look forward to seeing him go to prison for a very long time so he can’t victimize any more of our community’s children. Parents, if your children have been around this pervert, talk to them and if they indicate they may be another victim, call us immediately.”
