Three Palm Coast teenagers are facing multiple felony charges of burglary of an auto following a series of car break-ins overnight July 11 in the Indian Trails section of Palm Coast, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
D’Shawn Hosang, 16, of the B-section, was arrested July 12 in connection with nine of the break-ins that took place on Beachway, Bradmore and Bracken lanes in Palm Coast. Felony charges of burglary of an auto have been filed against Marcus Chamblin, 17, of the B-section, who is currently being held at the Division of Juvenile Justice in Daytona Beach on unrelated charges. The third teen, Darius Harvey, 16, of the B-section, was arrested Wednesday afternoon.
Sheriff’s Office deputy Nate Smith said the three spent the overnight hours of July 11 and early morning hours of July 12 breaking into vehicles. All three teens may face additional charges as more victims are contacted.
Deputies said in all the burglaries, the vehicles had been left unlocked on the driveways.
The teens stole portable CD players, laptops, portable air compressors, a purse and a cell phone.
The stolen property was located in the attic of Chamblin’s home with the cooperation of his mother, according to deputies.
Hosang and Harvey were arrested and turned over to the DJJ in Daytona Beach. The three teens also face multiple misdemeanor counts of theft.
“These teenagers should have been at home, not on the streets,” Sheriff Donald Fleming said in a statement. “The crimes they have committed are crimes of opportunity. Residents need to remember to lock their vehicles wherever they are being parked. This is one of those good habits to acquire.”

- Hey Josie, I was a victim of this robbery, my door WAS LOCKED! And so was my sons, my husband chased them and one dropped a screwdriver as he ran, so believe half of what you hear, they want to rob you they will find a way, thank God my husband ran after them and stopped them from breaking into other cars locked or unlocked!
- True these teenagers have been remiseed and should be punished, severely, if necessary so they will learn their lessons well. However, what are these adults doing leaving their properties open, serving as added temptation and encouragement to people up to no good?
With the current economy in the condition that it's in, there's a lot of people that are either too lazy to work, can't find jobs, or in dire need, let's not give them anymore problems, temptations, or opportunities to do harm to others, or to themselves. Please!!!
