Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly was made aware of a video this week involving a local resident acting aggressively towards a large gathering of people who came together to show support for a particular Presidential candidate. In the video, the person in support of the opposite candidate drives down the street where the group is gathering while screaming profanities and at points threatening members of the group. During the encounter, the aggressive individual claims to be “buddies” with Sheriff Staly.
“Not only did his dangerous and stupid actions divert our search for the fleeing suspect but shining a laser at a helicopter could have caused the helicopter to crash by blinding the pilot,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “In Florida, shining a laser beam at a pilot in flight is a felony offense. We appreciate the assistance of the Volusia Sheriff’s Office to apprehend and arrest both individuals and I’m very thankful his actions did not result in a disastrous crash that could have killed the pilots and people on the ground.”
"The RTCC using this technology truly allows us to strategically use available resources better, apprehend criminals faster and prevent crime by apprehending offenders before they can commit additional crimes," says Sheriff Staly. "The vision and implementation of the RTCC had been delayed because we did not have adequate space in our temporary office space in the courthouse but with the assistance of Clerk of the Court Tom Bexley we were able to obtain sufficient space to implement the RTCC.”
“Quick access to surveillance footage solves crimes,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “People install these cameras to protect their businesses, their homes and their families. By working together we can continue to solve crimes quickly and keep crime low in Flagler County.”
“A lot has changed in 2020 but unfortunately, the scammers are still up to their old tricks,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “If you receive a call like this or from anyone requesting immediate payments or personal information over the phone we advise you to hang up and call the business yourself. Do not be an easy target.”
