Family bonding

5:05 p.m. — 5100 block of State Road 100, Palm Coast

Grand theft. A 22-year-old Bunnell woman took her two underaged sisters for a shopping spree where they allegedly attempted to steal over $1,100 worth of merchandise.

A loss prevention employee spotted the woman and her sisters — a 12-year-old and a 16-year-old — stuffing merchandise into bags the three had brought with them.

The three girls pocketed bracelets, clothing, beauty products, sunglasses and more, the report said. The merchandise totaled $1,113.48.

Sheriff’s Office deputies stopped the three as they left the store. While talking to deputies, the 12-year-old admitted that she and her sisters had shoplifted multiple times, the report said.

The 12-year-old was sent home with her mother while the other two were arrested, the report said. 

The 22-year-old woman was charged with grand theft, marijuana possession and two counts of causing child delinquency.

Actions and consequences

Battery of an officer. A man lying on the sidewalk near Wadsworth Park was arrested after he allegedly shoved a Sheriff’s Office deputy.

The first deputy responded to the scene and asked the man, who was on the sidewalk next to a bicycle, if he was okay, according to the man’s arrest report. 

The man tried to sit up and almost fell over, but told the deputy he was fine.

He admitted he was intoxicated, but said he was on his way home with his bike. Once he stood up, however, he was “clearly swaying and unsteady,” the deputy noted in the report.

As another deputy pulled up to the scene, the first deputy asked the man if he could call anyone to get him. 

The man approached the second deputy — who had not yet spoken to the man — and held up his hands inches from the deputy.

The man was ordered to back up, but instead pushed the deputy. He was arrested and taken to the county jail.
