March Roundup

Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies made 12 arrests this past weekend between 6 p.m. on Friday, March 15, 2024, and 6 a.m. on Monday, March 18, 2024. They handled 627 calls for service and made 92 traffic stops.

“As Flagler County got started on Spring Break, some residents followed my advice to be aware of their surroundings and report suspicious behavior,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “See something, say something callers resulted in the arrests of two individuals that are no stranger to the Green Roof Inn and continue to be a problem for the community.”

Fugitive with 14 Previous Drug Arrests Captured in Palm Coast

On Friday, March 15 just after 6:45 p.m., deputies responded to a duplex in the C-Section of Palm Coast after receiving an anonymous tip that a known fugitive, Svetlana Kryzhanovskaya, was hiding in a shed in the backyard of the residence.

Kryzhanovskaya (35, Palm Coast) had two active Flagler County Warrants for Violation of Probation, with original charges of Driving While License Suspended, Possession of Fentanyl, and a DUI (Second Offense). She is a known criminal, having been arrested by FCSO 14 times since 2018 on various drug-related charges.

When Deputy Schmidt arrived on scene, he saw Kryzhanovskaya entering the home through the back door. Additional deputies arrived and gave verbal commands for her to exit the home. After several minutes, Kryzhanovskaya surrendered. She was arrested for her two active warrants and was transported to the Sheriff Pery Hall Inmate Detention Facility.

During the booking process, Kryzhanovskaya was found to have Suboxone hidden in her vaginal area. She now faces the additional charges of Introduction of Contraband into a Secure Facility and Possession of Buprenorphone and is currently being held without bond.

“This individual has had multiple chances to turn herself in but instead attempted to hide from law enforcement,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “I commend our deputies for safely appending her and hope she will turn her life around. Our detention center has numerous programs to help her leave the drugs and life of crime behind. She just needs to decide to change her life.”

Concerned Neighbor Reports Suspicious Person who is Found with Narcotics

On Sunday, March 17, a concerned citizen called FCSO’s non-emergency line after seeing a suspicious man with a backpack pacing in front of her home and entering a portable bathroom on a residential construction site in the R-Section of Palm Coast.

At approximately 8:47 p.m., Deputy Patel responded to the scene at Rymsen Lane and found the man, later identified as Glib Fedotov (22, Palm Coast), still standing near the portable bathroom in front of the residential construction site. When Deputy Patel approached and began talking with Fedotov, he observed him to be fidgety, speaking rapidly, and pacing during the conversation.


Deputies checked inside the portable bathroom and located a small plastic bag containing 1.2g of a rock-like substance that later tested positive for Fentanyl. They also located a balled-up piece of aluminum foil with burn marks where Fedotov had been standing, and a gray camouflage cross-body bag from the portable bathroom that contained additional pieces of burnt aluminum foil and containers holding 12.4 grams of a leafy green substance and another 1.5 grams of a ground leafy substance all of which tested positive for Marijuana.

Fedotov denied owning the bag, but Deputy Perkins, had seen him with it during a previous encounter on March 11 after Fedotov and two other individuals were seen walking around another residential construction site. After reviewing previous bodycam footage, it was confirmed the bag did in fact belong to Fedotov. Witnesses also stated they saw Fedotov place the bags on the ground when he saw the patrol car arrive on scene.

Fedotov was arrested for Possession of Fentanyl, Possession of Marijuana (20 Grams or Less), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where he is being held on a $3,500 bond.

In 2021, Fedotov was convicted on felony charges of Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card and Burglary of an Unoccupied Conveyance. He served four months and was released in September of 2022. He served eight months in 2023 after another felony conviction for Possession of Cannabis (21 Grams or More) and Use or Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was released in December of last year.

“Residential construction sites continue to be a target for would-be thieves and drug users, but residents are community guardians with us and are reporting suspicious behavior,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “I commend the witnesses for reporting what they saw. Thanks to their efforts and a quick and thorough investigation by deputies, this career criminal is back where he belongs, facing a longer residency at the Green Roof Inn.”

Deputies Investigate Stabbing Over Religious Debate

On Sunday, March 17 at approximately 11:12 p.m. Deputies responded to a reported stabbing at the Circle K gas station on Palm Harbor Parkway in Palm Coast.


Two men reported they were having a religious debate outside on the picnic table with the suspect when it developed into a heated argument. The suspect began to strike one of the victims repeatedly, then turned on the second man after he tried to intervene.

One of the victims sustained multiple lacerations with a sharp-edged instrument to his neck, shoulder and back, as well as a puncture wound to the left side of his abdominal area. The other said he was not stabbed but had been struck multiple times by the suspect’s fists and had sustained bruises to his right side, and two red marks on the center of his chest.

They described the suspect as a white male, possibly 6’1 in height with a slender build and shoulder-length dreadlocks. He was wearing a green shirt, hat and had a black backpack. After the altercation, they saw him flee on foot through a wooded area behind the gas station. After an extensive search the suspect was not located.

At this time, the subject has been identified and an arrest is pending. “There is no current threat to the community,” said Sheriff Staly.
