PALM COAST, Fla. -- Two Flagler County residents face numerous charges in a relation to a string of burglaries to pharmacies in St. Johns and Flagler counties.

Deputies say Daniel Lindsey, 29, and Matthew Barker, 27, were taken into custody without
incident Saturday after information became available that the two were responsible for the recent robbery of a CVS pharmacy in St. Augustine and a burglary at a Palm Coast Pharmacy.

No one was hurt in either incident.

“This was a tremendous cooperative effort between both agencies that has resulted in the arrest of two individuals who may have eventually hurt someone had they not been caught as quickly as they were,” said Flagler County Sheriff James L. Manfre.
Lindsey and Barker were arrested in Flagler County and were both eventually transported to the St. John’s County Jail, where they are being held on bonds of $250,000.
