Don’t be suspicious

3:51 p.m., Mahogany Street, Bunnell

Sex offender—failure to register address change. Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a registered sex offender at a traffic stop for failing to change his address.

FCSO deputies only became aware of the suspect the day before when he stopped to speak with a FCSO corporal at Canal Avenue and Rosewood Street, the man’s arrest report said. The suspect spoke with the corporal about a trespass warning he received and, in the process, told the corporal he was a registered sex offender.

After the suspect left, the corporal looked the man up and saw he was registered as a transient living in Ormond Beach, but had not been reporting in as required, the report said. After tracing the suspect’s plates, the corporal realized the man's truck had not crossed back into Volusia County since March 7.

The next day, the suspect was pulled over for not stopping at a stop sign and arrested.

New 'neighbor'

9:30 p.m., 2000 block of Oak Place, Flagler Beach

Burglary, criminal mischief. A Flagler Beach woman was arrested for burglary in a home she said had been rented out to her for a few weeks.

But the home belongs to a couple that lives in Canada, and the suspect had to remove the front doorknob to get in. Neighbors called the property manager because they saw the lights on, according to the woman’s arrest report.

The manager held the woman there until Flagler Beach Police Officers arrived. The owners told FBPD officers over the phone that neither they nor anyone they knew had given the woman permission to be there, acording to the report.

The suspect admitted to the officers she removed the doorknob from the front door.

 Inside the home, the suspect had already started moving in: Her wallet and several other belongings were found inside.

The woman was charged and taken to the county jail.
