Credit card report: It’s stolen

Beer right back
7 p.m. — 4900 Block of Belle Terre Parkway. Larceny Shoplifting. The store manager told deputies that a white male was observed pushing a shopping cart through a store: the cart contained a case of Corona Extra and an 18-pack of Bud Light.
The suspect then left the store, passing all points of sale. When confronted on the sidewalk in front of the store, he let go of the shopping cart and continued to walk toward the closed gas station on the southwest corner of the property. The man then took off his orange-and-white shirt, and then ran toward Cypress Branch Way. The deputy on scene watched the surveillance tapes, seeing a white male with blond hair push a shopping cart containing the alcohol, valued at $40.64.
The deputy transported the store manager to the area of Cypress Point and Cypress Branch to identify the subject. The manager immediately stated, “That’s him,” and the man was arrested and transported to the Flagler County Inmate Facility without incident. Three friends of the suspect who were on scene but not directly involved with the theft were contacted and issued trespass notices for being intoxicated and bothering customers.
4:30 p.m. — First Block of Sleepy Hollow Trail. Burglary Residence. A woman returned home from work at approximately 5:30 p.m. and noticed her chest freezer was missing from the garage. The woman stated that her child’s Smart Cycle and her Toro weed eater were also missing from the garage.
The victim made contact with her boyfriend, who stated that he was in the garage around 4:30 p.m. and left the garage door open while he was cooking dinner. The woman was unable to provide serial numbers for any of the stolen items.
NO GAS MONEY, NO DEAL
Something borrowed …
8 a.m. — 500 Block of Bay Berry Village Road. Stolen Vehicle. A young man stated that he loaned a woman his red 1992 Toyota Tercel with the agreement that it would be returned to him within 48 hours. The man also stated that the last contact he had with this woman was on June 9, when she informed him that she could not return the vehicle to him because she did not have enough gas to get home from Ocala, to Bunnell, with the car.
The man told the woman that he would come get the vehicle, but she would not tell him where she was located. She has not returned his phone calls since that day. Deputies will search for the car in Flagler County and its surrounding areas.
