Media Relations Officer Brittany Kershaw reported to Historic City News Saturday that two fugitives from St Johns County were apprehended Friday at a residence located in Palm Coast. Both were booked into the Flagler County Detention Facility and then returned to St Augustine.
- First, 31-year-old William Tobias-Elliott Tinsley of 11 Rainstone Ln had two active warrants; one for sale of oxycodone and the other for trafficking in a controlled substance. Additionally, he was charged with possession of methadone at the time of his arrest. His total bond is set at $160,000.00.
- Also recovered was 21-year-old Jocelyn McLaughlin of 11 Rainstone Ln who had an active warrant for child neglect. Her bond was set at $5,000.00.
“These two thought Flagler County would be a good place to hide out, but they were wrong,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Opiates are a plague to our country and we will continue to hunt down those who peddle this poison in our community.”
At the time of the arrests, Tinsley was in possession of a pill bottle containing 63-prescribed round blue tablets marked M-30 (Oxycodone 30mg). The bottle also contained 11-unprescribed rectangular white tablets marked M-5771 (Methadone 10mg).
