Flagler County burglars may have hit in Daytona Beach area

Detectives believe same burglars involved in at least 2 recent incidents

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Detectives with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office are releasing store video surveillance from a recent burglary at Greg Lynn Jewelers in Palm Coast that they believe may be linked to at least four other incidents, including two in Daytona Beach.

Two burglars approached the jewelry store. Deputies said one burglar threw a large cinder block through the window and entered the business. The second burglar entered the store.

Both men removed items from the counters and left, taking about $6,000 in jewelry, deputies said.

The first burglar is described by deputies as black, 6 feet tall, with a thin build, wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, blue athletic shorts, white shoes, and black-and-light brown gloves, with tattoos on both wrists.

The second burglar is described by deputies as black, 6 feet tall, with a medium build, wearing a white long-sleeved shirt, black shorts and shoes, and blue gloves.

Detectives believe a second burglary that happened later the same morning at Hess in Bunnell, is related. In that case, the glass front door was shattered and an ATM and 40 cartons of cigarettes were taken, deputies said.

Daytona Beach detectives believe the same burglars are involved in at least two recent incidents, including one at 12:55 a.m. July 9 at a Citgo at 895 North Nova Road, and another on July 12.

In the Citgo burglary, two burglars attempted to steal money from the ATM and a stolen black Dodge truck was possibly involved, detectives said.

On July 12, in an incident at a Discount Market at 1437 South Ridgewood Ave., a Dodge truck was used to break a door and two burglars were seen, Daytona Beach police Detective Elizabeth Daniel said.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call Detective Joe Costello at the Flagler County Sheriff's Office's Investigative Services Division at 386-586-4801 in reference to case 2015-70536. In Daytona Beach, call Daniel at 386-671-5218 or email daniele@dbpd.us.
