Flagler County, FL – The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) and the Flagler Beach Police Department (FBPD) have arrested four individuals for curfew violations.
On Monday night, Joseph Wayne Lynch, 37, and Joshua Matthew Hiatt, 20, were arrested by the FBPD. Lynch was arrested for Curfew Violation and Hiatt was arrested for Curfew Violation and loitering. The charges carry a $250 bond and a $750 bond, respectively.
Michael Hugh Griffin, 32, and Vernon Paul Lahee were both arrested by the FCSO and charged with Curfew Violation. Griffin was also charged with giving a false name while detained, racking up his bond to $1,000 while Lahee earned a $500 bond.
“The reason for the countywide curfew is for the protection of the community,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “There are downed power lines and a lot of flooding. When it is dark and the areas are unsafe, it is best to stay indoors. These people were not only violating the curfew, but they were up to no good so they took a trip to the Green Roof Inn (county jail).”
As of Tuesday, the countywide curfew was lifted. The Flagler Beach and barrier island curfew remains in place from Tuesday at 10 PM to Wednesday at 6 AM.
