The raid of the home in Palm Coast comes after FCSO announced a multi-agency raid on violent drug dealers just last week. “Raids will continue until dirtbags understand we will not tolerate drugs and guns in Flagler County,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly says. “Take your drugs and guns and get out of Flagler County, because we will find you.”
