Burglary, grand theft. A Palm Coast woman was arrested after she allegedly broke into a workplace she was recently fired from.

Howdy, neighbor

8:02 p.m. — 4400 block of County Road 90, Bunnell

Battery on person over 65. A Bunnell man was arrested after he allegedly punched his neighbor in the nose during an argument about yard waste.

The victim, 65, told Sheriff’s Office deputies that he and his neighbor had an ongoing argument about their property lines, according to the suspect’s arrest report.

He said the suspect had been dumping yard waste on the victim’s side of their fence, so the victim had placed a lock on the gate.

When the suspect confronted him about the lock and then admitted to dumping the yard waste, the victim told the suspect to “quit taking liberties with my property,” the report said.

The victim told deputies the suspect then yelled back, “Nobody talks to me like that,” and punched the 65-year-old in the nose.

The suspect was charged with battery on a person 65 years of age or older and taken to the county jail.
