A 48-year-old St. Petersburg man and a 35-year-old Palm Coast woman are in the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility after FCSO finds them in a stolen Volkswagen Tiguan with drugs inside.

Trevor Lee Groat and Megan Nicole Dougherty both face a felony charge of grand theft auto after deputies found them at the Circle K gas station on 6125 East State Road 100 in Palm Coast just after 9:00 p.m. Tuesday evening September 27.

Deputies were dispatched to look for a reported stolen tag and found the vehicle at a gas station fuel pump with Dougherty inside the vehicle in a passenger seat. She was taken into custody at that point. Groat – the driver of the stolen vehicle – was found inside the convenience store and also taken into custody.

Groat was arrested for grand theft auto, petit theft and possession of another person’s identification without authorization after deputies found him with multiple ID’s belonging to another man. He’s being held on $3,000 bond at the Green Roof Inn. Groat has no prior arrests in Flagler County.

Dougherty was arrested for grand theft auto and possession of drug paraphernalia after she was found with a plastic straw in her bra which was used to snort narcotics. She’s held on $500 bond at the Green Roof Inn.

This is the third time Dougherty has been booked at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. She was arrested two separate times in 2013 for giving false information to a pawnbroker and violation of probation.

“Groat thought he could steal a car and joy ride to Flagler County,” added Sheriff Staly. “He learned the hard way he shouldn’t have come to Flagler County in a stolen car.”
