Michael Hudson was found to have an active warrant out of Flagler County for violation of pretrial services for operating a motor vehicle without a driver’s license, possession of cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
“These guys have not yet learned to get out of the drug trade, so they got a reminder yesterday when our deputies and detectives paid them a visit,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “We hope they close their drug business for good as other businesses and neighbors should not have to deal with the criminal element and other crimes that usually occur around drug dealing.”
Rodney Hill was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was release after posting a $1,000 bond. Andrew Jones was arrested and charged with possession of THC, possession of cannabis, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He remains in jail on a $3,500 bond.
