The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man who allegedly stole thousands of dollars from his uncle in a home invasion style robbery on Tuesday.
Deputies say they initially responded to a report of a home invasion robbery on Pine Grove Drive in Palm Coast. The victim told dispatchers that his nephew Alexander Brown, 20, knocked on his door and once inside, pulled out a handgun and forced him on the ground at gunpoint
Deputies say Brown and two others stole cash, jewelry, and miscellaneous items from the home totaling more than $8,000.
On Thursday, detectives secured an arrest warrant for Brown on the charges of Home Invasion Robbery with a Firearm and Grand Theft with a bond of $110,000.
Brown has not yet been located, deputies say.
