Two deputies placed the suspects in custody and, while searching the vehicle, found a baggie of 2.25 grams of synthetic cathinones in the woman’s purse and a $10 dollar bill with more cathinones on it, weighing 1.07 grams.
Both suspects were charged with grand theft and possession of cathinones and taken to the county jail.
A sibling resemblance

False name. A Palm Coast woman attempted to pass off as her sister in order to get out of trouble for driving with a suspended license.
A Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over a Chevrolet Malibu in a parking lot after the vehicle’s tags came up as registered to a woman with a suspended license, according to an arrest report. Before the deputy could finish introducing himself, the woman driving the car asked, “Is this about my sister’s registration?”
The woman then told the deputy that she is the sister of the car's owner and she was using the car to go to work at one of the businesses in the parking lot. After looking at the woman’s driver’s license, the deputy noted the woman looked like the one with a suspended license and not the sister.
After confirming with the woman’s work that this was the car owner and not the sister she was claiming to be, the woman admitted to being herself and was placed under arrest.
