Alex Concepcion Twenty seven years old Alex Alonzo Concepcion, of Interlachen was arrested late Tuesday night (11/24/15) charged with the domestic battery of two ex-girlfriends. In addition, he has been charged with threatening two neighbors with butcher knives, when they tried to interrupt the beatings. Concepcion has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of misdemeanor domestic battery and one count of felony domestic battery.

According to an investigation by Deputy Thomas Appleby, Concepcion has had an unreported history of beating his latest ex-girlfriend. She stated she has been unsuccessfully trying to avoid Concepcion, but he has been able to find her each time. Earlier Tuesday evening she was walking down a roadway with another of Concepcion’s ex-girlfriends when Concepcion suddenly appeared and threw the latest ex-girlfriend to the ground. She was able to make it inside her residence, but Concepcion reportedly continued to beat her, finally hitting her over the head with a plate, breaking the plate and causing a large gash in the side of her head. When the second ex-girlfriend attempted to lock the doors to the residence to separate the two, Concepcion reportedly shoved her aside in order to continue beating the victim.

The victim was able to escape to a neighbor’s house to call for help. Concepcion reportedly arrived at the neighbor’s house armed with two butcher knives. According to those present, he threatened to stab two of the neighbors who were separating him from the victim. At this time deputies began to arrive. Concepcion threw down the butcher knives and was taken into custody. The victim was transported to Putnam Community Medical Center for treatment from the beatings and the gash on her head.

As Concepcion was being transported to the Putnam County Jail, he continued to make threats toward Deputy Appleby and all of the people involved in his arrest. He is presently being held without benefit of bond.

Pomona Park Crime Spree Suspect Arrested

Nov 23, 2015

Billie Ayala A Pomona Park crime spree was brought to an end early Saturday morning (11/21/15 at about 4:30 a.m.) when twenty five years old Billie Ray Ayala, of Palatka, was taken into custody while driving a stolen Chevrolet Camaro. Before the case was finished, four deputies worked four different crime scenes. They ultimately charged Ayala with one count of burglary an occupied dwelling, two counts of burglary of unoccupied structures, three counts of burglary of conveyances, two counts of grand theft, two counts of petit theft and one count of grand theft auto.

The investigation began when the Pomona Park Fire Chief reported to Deputy Chad McNeill that he had returned home at about 4:30 a.m. when he immediately realized his van had been burglarized. Chief Melvin Asher determined that his fire radio and several flashlights had been stolen from his van. He also spotted Ayala walking away from the area carrying two bags. Chief Asher did not recognize Ayala and confronted him on Main Street. Ayala told Chief Asher that he had been dropped off and was trying to get home. The Chief contacted the Sheriff’s Office and watched as Ayala placed the bags on the ground and walked into a wooded area.

Additional deputies cordoned off the area and called for a canine unit to track the suspect. Before the canine unit arrived, Deputy Bradley Waldron spotted a Chevrolet Camaro back out of a nearby driveway. Deputy Waldron stopped the Camaro and noticed that the inside of the car had been ransacked. When he asked the driver, later determined to be Ayala for his driver’s license, Ayala told him it was inside of the bags that Chief Asher had watched him lay on the ground. Deputy Waldron took Ayala into custody, and he was then identified by Chief Asher as the person who laid the bags on the ground and walked into the woods.

At about this same time, the owner of the Camaro called the Sheriff’s Office to report the car stolen. Deputy Waldron determined that Ayala had burglarized the car owner’s house while she was sleeping and took the car keys, medicine and sunglasses. Ayala was transported to the Putnam County Jail without incident and booked on charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling, burglary of a conveyance, grand theft, petit theft and grand theft of a vehicle.

Later Saturday morning, Deputy Chad Hallman received a call of a burglary of a vehicle on Main Street in Pomona Park. Deputy Hallman determined that a Pomona Park coupled had packed their car on Friday night for a trip on Saturday and found the car and a shed burglarized. All of the property taken in the burglary had previously been located inside the bags Ayala had been seen carrying. Deputy Hallman came to the Putnam County Jail and arrested Ayala charging him with burglary of a structure, burglary of a conveyance and grand theft.

Finally, Deputy William Gill retrieved more property abandoned on the side of the road. The Camaro owner also contacted the deputies working the area and reported that a flashlight and sunglasses were found inside the stolen Camaro that did not belong to the car’s owner. Deputy Gill determined that the property belonged to a fourth Main Street victim that found their car and shed burglarized. Deputy Gill placed the additional charges of burglary of a structure, burglary of a conveyance and petit theft against Ayala.

All of the property stolen during these four incidents was recovered either inside of the stolen Camaro or in the bags Ayala dumped after Chief Asher confronted him. Billie Ray Ayala is presently being held in the Putnam County Jail in lieu of $13,044.00 bond. The investigation involving Ayala is being continued.
