Moving day

Burglary, criminal mischief. 

A Palm Coast man wanted to move out of his father’s house so badly that he broke into a neighbor’s home and began to move in. 

Deputies arrived at the home to investigate a residential alarm going off, according to the suspect’s arrest report. Deputies found the man sitting in the home’s back porch, waiting for them. 

The suspect told the deputies that he knew breaking the window of the home would bring deputies to the scene. Inside the home, the drawers had been rifled through, and a large suitcase belonging to the suspect was also inside. 

The suspect said he needed to move out from his father’s home and this, the neighbor’s home, was the closest place. The homeowners lived out of state. 

The man was arrested and taken to jail.

A wish granted

12:46 a.m. — 6100 block of State Road 100, Flagler County


A man called in a trespass on himself, telling deputies he did not want to go home. 

Deputies received a call from the suspect that he was at a gas station and wanted to be trespassed and arrested, according to the suspect’s arrest report. The man told deputies the address where he could be found, and hung up.

When deputies got there, the man had left the gas station, only to go to another gas station a few doors down and called to tell the deputies where he was. 

When the deputies found him at the second gas station, the suspect said he couldn’t go home. As he had previously been trespassed from the second gas station, deputies did arrest him for trespassing.
