Colbourne has also been arrested five times before by the Flagler County Sheriff's Office. Flagler Sheriff Rick Staly says that Colbourne's first arrest came when he stole a car and crashed it into another vehicle when he was 15-years-old.

Both Smith and Colbourne were charged with multiple possession charges and violation of probation. Additionally, Smith was charged with tampering with evidence.
