FugutiveArrested

On Wednesday, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) captured a Daytona Beach man with three outstanding warrants traveling south on I-95.

Around 6 am, Deputy Perkins conducted a traffic stop on a gray sedan after it completed an illegal U-turn in the emergency median near mile marker 286. The vehicle was operated by Willy Montfort, 42, whose Florida driver’s license has been suspended 18 times since January 2020 for delinquent child support payments. Milfort also had an active warrant in Alachua and Volusia Counties for Writ of Bodily Attachment, as well as an active warrant in Jessamine County, Kentucky for Child Neglect.

Milfort was arrested for the Out-Of-County Warrants and additionally charged with Knowingly Driving While License Suspended or Revoked. Milfort was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility with bond set at $35,040.

“We have no tolerance for fugitives in Flagler County and another fugitive found that out the hard way,” Sheriff Staly noted. “If you’re looking to avoid the law, you’ve come to the wrong place. It also amazes me how criminals continue to do things that will draw the attention of law enforcement when they know their license is suspended and they are wanted, but I’m glad they do! Welcome to the Green Roof Inn for Thanksgiving. We don’t serve turkey! Another great job by Deputy Perkins and her back-up being pro-active.”
