Five strikes

7:50 p.m. — 2200 block of State Road 100, Flagler Beach

Disorderly conduct. A Flagler Beach homeless man was arrested for disorderly conduct after being trespassed from five different locations.

The incidents started with the man being trespassed from a gas station at 1:41 a.m. after banging drunkenly on the windows. Later in the day, police officers trespassed the man from a restaurant on the Flagler Beach pier and the pier and boardwalk after the man harassed beachgoers and customers, the suspect’s arrest report said.

At 6:10 p.m., an officer was then called to a different gas station where the man was fighting with another homeless man. By the time the officer got there, the fighting had ended and the suspect was trespassed from there as well.

Within an hour, the suspect went to two more stores — one of which trespassed him — and then to a nearby park, where he was drinking a bottle of vodka and stomping around, yelling profanities. After almost a full day of interactions with police, the suspect was arrested.

Date night out

Shoplifting. A couple was arrested for attempting to steal $86.64 of merchandise while out at a department store.

Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the department store when a loss prevention officer spotted two individuals, one of whom had stolen from the store in the past, according to an arrest report. Deputies found the man in his car in the store parking lot while the woman was found in the bathroom.

A deputy called out to the female suspect while she was in the bathroom and, after the suspect left the bathroom, the deputy checked the bathroom trash cans and found a smart TV remote, a tanning glove and a bottle of lubricant. Security footage showed the male suspect watching the woman place the items in her purse, the report said.

Despite the man just watching the woman place the items in her bag, both suspects were charged with retail theft.
