Auto pilot

6:30 p.m. — First Block of Faith Lane. Suspicious vehicle. A deputy responded a suspicious vehicle report after receiving complaints of a white SUV that was driving up and down a residential block slowly, numerous times. The reporting party was concerned that the vehicle was committing a burglary.

The deputy then observed a white SUV traveling eastbound on Faith Lane. The deputy activated his emergency lights and siren and attempted a traffic stop. The vehicle did stop at that point, but before the deputy could exit his patrol vehicle, the vehicle drove away. 

The deputy continued to follow the vehicle with lights and sirens activated, but this time, the vehicle did not stop. The vehicle ran a stop sign and turned onto Florida Park Drive. It stopped at a red light at the intersection of Palm Coast Parkway eastbound. The deputy exited his vehicle in attempt to make a felony stop when he noticed a female’s head and hands exit the driver’s window. The female smiled at the officer, waved, and proceeded to drive down Florida Park Drive.

The vehicle then approached another red traffic light and proceeded to drive through it, making a right turn heading westbound into oncoming traffic. The vehicle then turned around and continued to travel eastbound on Palm Coast Parkway before ultimately stopping on the same road.

A felony stop was conducted and contact was made with the driver, who advised that she was not sure what happened. The suspect was not making much sense or following instructions. She denied any medical conditions and refused treatment.

The suspect was placed under arrest for fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and for reckless driving and was issued traffic citations for both. Through investigation, it was learned that the suspect was not under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.

A tow truck removed the vehicle from the scene. The suspect’s dog was turned over to the Flagler County Humane Society.

Gone without a trace

2:47 p.m. — First Block of Riviera Drive. Burglary — residential. A deputy responded a call from a home alarm system. Upon arrival, the deputy noticed pry marks on the sliding glass door into the home’s living room. Responding units formed a perimeter in the surrounding area. Units who responded to the residence itself were able to gain entry by lifting the sliding glass door slightly, due to its locking mechanism being slightly damaged during the burglary attempt. 

K-9 responded to the scene in attempt to get a track with negative results. The perimeter units were told to cancel the perimeter and the deputy continued his investigation at the residence. The deputy was unable to gather any fingerprints.
