Delivery driver arrested, charged with stealing a license plate to deliver food

4:55 p.m. — 100 block of South 4th Street, Flagler Beach

Petit theft. A Maryland woman was arrested after a police officer pulled her over for driving with a stolen tag.

The woman initially told the officer that she had no idea why a Florida tag was on her Ford Fusion. 

She said the vehicle should have a Maryland tag, since she was from there, according to her arrest report. When the officer told her that there was no Maryland tag registered to the vehicle, she confessed to stealing the Florida tag.

The woman said she’d taken it from a car in Port Orange because she could not afford to register her own, but needed to use her Ford Fusion to deliver food through a third-party food delivery app, the report said.

The woman was arrested and taken to the county jail.

Man arrested in connection with theft of cleaning lady's speaker

1 p.m. — First block of Unique Court, Flagler County

Burglary. A Palm Coast man was arrested after he entered a duplex he was recently evicted from and tried to steal a Bluetooth speaker and vape pen.

A woman hired by the property owner to clean the duplex told a responding Sheriff’s Office deputy that she left the home to run to the store, and when she returned, the man was leaving a unit with her Bluetooth speaker and vape pen, according to his arrest report.

She said the man told her he was taking the items as collateral, but then he returned them to her when she told him to. 

The man then got on his bicycle and left, the report said. The property owner told the deputy that the man fit the description of a tenant who had been evicted on July 14.

The deputy contacted the tenant, who admitted to entering the building and trying to take the items. He said he had left some things behind when he left the home and went to retrieve them. The man was arrested.
