Local teens arrested for Ponte Vedra car burglary

Detectives ask residents to check for missing keys


Three St. Johns County teens were arrested July 27 in connection with a Ponte Vedra vehicle burglary.

The suspects were identified as Jonathan Austin Lulloff, 18, of Ponte Vedra; and two juveniles -- one from Ponte Vedra and one from St. Augustine. Lulloff is in the St. Johns County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. The two juveniles were released to their parents.

According to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a report of three individuals in dark clothing walking around the Walden Chase subdivision shortly before 3 a.m. July 27. The three suspects were later found by deputies in Nocatee’s nearby Austin Park neighborhood, and were taken into custody for questioning. Officers also located a backpack that allegedly contained property from a vehicle burglary at a residence in the 600 block of Battlegate Lane.

District detectives continued the investigation and located additional alleged stolen property from Lulloff’s home, including several sets of keys that have not been identified. Detectives are asking Ponte Vedra residents – particularly in the Walden Chase, Florentine and Nocatee communities – to contact the sheriff’s office if they are missing keys or other property from vehicles within the past two weeks. For more information, contact Detective David Garns at (904) 824-8304.
