A felon is behind bars at the Green Roof Inn this afternoon after Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies pulled him over Wednesday afternoon on Palm Coast Parkway and discovered multiple stolen identification, debit cards and narcotics.
Deputies conducted a high risk traffic stop after 37-year-old Kenton Chance pulled into a Publix parking lot. The tag on his truck had been reported stolen from Miami, FL. Chance, currently on probation for the offense of worthless checks, is currently being held on no bond as he faces 12 new felony charges after FCSO deputies found stolen driver’s licenses, credit cards, and blank checks from several different individuals in his possession.
Deputies also determined the truck was a rental. A call was made to Enterprise rental company who stated the vehicle was rented to a female in Fort Lauderdale. While searching the truck, deputies found a small zipper bag filled with an unknown rock like substance, and an unknown brown substance, unknown grey powder substance, and a bag containing a white powdery substance which field tested presumptive positive for Cocaine.
“This was a great effort by deputies to locate not only a stolen vehicle and tag but also to find this suspect had various peoples’ identities and various illegal drugs,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Hopefully, this will teach him and other criminals to not come to Flagler County with stolen property because we will catch you and take you to the Green Roof Inn.”
This felon has arrests dating back to 1997. Among the charges he’s faced outside of Florida are Identity Theft, Forgery, Burglary and Driving without a License. Among the charges he’s previously faced in Florida are Grand Theft, Possession of Cocaine, Bribery of a Public Servant and Robbery with a Firearm.
