The FCSO had a busy weekend this last week making 9 arrests, handling 754 calls for service and making 144 traffic stops.

“Alcohol is no excuse for violence, especially against our deputies. If you hit a Deputy Sheriff, I promise you a one-way trip to jail,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “If you can’t handle your liquor, you better not set foot in Flagler County, unless you want to earn a room at our Green Roof Inn. Criminal activity has no place at Flagler Estates either. It is not a free-for-all area for vandals to do as they please. Don’t find out the hard way how serious we are about getting Flagler Estates under control.”

Sunday a FCSO deputy noticed several people in the middle of an altercation outside of the Palm Coast Lanes. The deputy attempted to intervene, when a woman, later identified as Elisa Armstrong, hit him on the right side of his face with a closed fist. The deputy took Armstrong to the ground, and secured her using handcuffs. He attempted to search her when she started to pull and push away from the vehicle at which point the deputy brought her to the ground again and completed his search. She was arrested and charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Without Violence, and Disorderly Intoxication. She is being held on a $2,500 bond.

FCSO and the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office (SJSO) teamed up to handle the ever growing trespassing and vandalism crimes in the Flagler Estates area.  The operation resulted in 35 traffic warnings, 12 trespass warnings  on FPL property, which included two for warnings for people using a makeshift range to shoot on. Deputies also took the opportunity to speak with roughly 50 citizens to educate and inform them of the trespassing laws.

SJSO deputies joined in the efforts on their side of the area with their ATVs to help reduce the criminal activity.
