Over this last weekend the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) made 6 arrests, took 755 calls and made 190 traffic stops between 6am August 11th, and 6am August 14th.
“You can run but if you commit a crime, you can’t hide from FCSO,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Criminals think they can bring their poison into Flagler County, but our deputies will find them wherever they may be. If you’re on the run, Flagler County is not the place to be. We will find you, and send you to the Green Roof Inn.”
Friday night, Deputy Coma responded to a call from a residence on Wood Ash Ln regarding a man who escaped hospital custody. Deputy Coma came in contact with Frank Joseph Pille III, while on the scene. During the check of the man’s I.D., Deputy Coma was able to ascertain that Pille had an active warrant from Hillsborough County for Failure to Appear in reference to Petit Theft First Degree. Pille was arrested and later released on a $5,000 bond.
Monday morning, Deputy Punsky was conducting a security check on the Red Roof Inn, on Kingswood Dr. During this search Deputy Punsky noted a silver vehicle parked in the rear northwest corner of the business with no lights on and two occupants. Deputy Punksy approached the vehicle and spoke with the man inside, who was identified as Clarence Haynes, 39. When Haynes opened the door, Deputy Punksy was met with the strong smell of Marijuana. Deputy Punsky then asked the occupants to vacate the car and conducted a probable cause search of the person and vehicle. During the search Deputy Punksy located a jar with roughly 5grams of marijuana in it. When Haynes was asked about having anything illegal on his person, he admitted to carrying “Ecstasy”. It was at this time deputies removed a small plastic baggie from Hayne’s left pocket which contained 4 round multi-colored pills which tested presumptive positive for MDMA (Ecstasy). Haynes was arrested for Possession of MDMA and later released on a $2,500 bond.
