A Graduation Message from the Sheriff
FCSO Teaches Manatee Safety
Text-to-911 is Available in Flagler County
“This is a dangerous guy who doesn’t think twice about using violence to get what he wants,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “I am thankful that the victim managed to escape this situation unharmed. We need to act fast before someone else is not so lucky. My advice to Alexander Brown and the other suspects is to turn yourselves in. We will find you and if you run, you will just go to jail tired.”
The FCSO takes these cases seriously and will continue to monitor the addresses of all sexual offenders in the county. These laws are designed to protect children from becoming victims and allow law enforcement to know where sexual offenders are living to ensure compliance.
On September 13th, 2019, Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Deputies attempted to locate Andre Watkins (DOB 10/31/1979) for a Sexual Offender address verification. Watkins, who recently bonded out of jail on a charge unrelated to his Sexual Offender status, claimed that he would be residing in the woods behind the Walmart in Palm Coast until he could establish a permanent residence.
On September 16, 2019, an arrest warrant was signed by Judge France for eight counts of Promoting Sexual Performance by a Child. The warrant was served to Leonard while he was still incarcerated in the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. The bond was set at $120,000.

“We may never know why he chose Flagler County to commit his crimes but I am glad that our deputies were able to locate him and get him off our streets before he could prey on even more victims,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “We continually push the #9PMroutine on our social media sites, which is a reminder for residents to lock their doors to their vehicles and homes at night to help prevent themselves from becoming a victim. While we hope that people would not try to take things that don’t belong to them, you can help prevent crime and protect yourself by keeping your valuables secure and keeping your doors locked.”
