News From The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Facebook Feed


On Tuesday the Honorable Judge Howard Maltz sentenced a bicycle thief to 3 years in prison. This was a result of a one day jury trial where the jury returned a guilty verdict after only about 10 minutes of deliberation.

The thief, Ronald Lee Keener, Jr., was arrested in December of 2015 after stealing a bicycle parked outside of the Dollar General store in the Westgate Shopping Plaza located at 525 SR 16. Keener was surprised to learn the bike was placed there by the Sheriff’s office as part of an operation targeting increased crime during the holiday shopping season.

Keener pleaded not guilty to the charge and demanded a jury trial even after being offered 12 months probation for the crime. The evidence presented against Keener at the trial was overwhelming and lead to the swift guilty verdict. Judge Maltz moved forward with the sentencing shortly after the verdict remanding Keener into custodyof the St. Johns County Sheriff’s office where he will await transfer to prison. Keener has 30 days to file an appeal. Detective Sheldon York was working on the investigation.

Active Shooter Incident Seminar

August 25, 2016, 7:00pm - August 25, 2016, 8:30pm

What if you are at the mall when someone walks in and starts shooting? Have you ever thought about what you would do? A few months ago, Sheriff Shoar launched an initiative to educate the public on what to do if they are ever caught in an active shooter situation, highlighting the “Run, Hide, Fight” process. After the events in Orlando, we are encouraging all of our citizens to come to the Sheriff’s seminars to increase the survivability and safety should something like this happens here in St. Johns County. This Active Shooter Incident Seminar will be on August 25, 2016 at the Fruit Cove Baptist Church at 7pm. This event is open to the public and you do not need to register to come. We look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions, feel free to message us and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
