Pre-paid theft

Shoplifting. 1:18 p.m. — Pine Cone Drive, Palm Coast

Shoplifting. A man arrested for allegedly stealing a firearm from a pawn shop said he tried to pay for it by leaving $200 cash on the counter.

The pawn shop on Palm Coast Parkway reported that a .32 caliber revolver had been stolen just after noon. Sheriff’s Office deputies found the suspect, 26, less than half a mile away, without the firearm, according to his arrest report. 

The man said he’d stolen the gun because he feared he wouldn’t pass the background check.

He’d thrown it into the shallow end of a nearby pond, and, once he was caught, showed deputies where he’d tossed it, according to the report.
