Palm Coast, FL – A violent criminal is behind bars in Flagler County after members of the FCSO Fugitive Unit and patrol deputies along with the U.S. Marshal’s Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force, apprehended fugitive from justice, Jody Reynolds. Reynolds is wanted in multiple states for a variety of violent crimes.
Reynolds was wanted in Jackson County, Oregon for his part in a violent home invasion robbery of a marijuana dispensary in December 2016. Oregon authorities say that Reynolds took part in beating the owner of the dispensary with a crowbar and firewood as well as burning him repeatedly with a torch lighter.
Reynolds has been on the run for almost two years but that came to an abrupt end this morning. U.S. Marshals tracked him to a home in the B-section of Palm Coast where they believed he was staying with a girlfriend. Because of his violent history, a backup was requested and provided by FCSO’s Fugitive Unit and patrol deputies.
The crew surrounded the home but Reynolds made it easy for them. He came out of the house to get on a bicycle. Law enforcement immediately stopped and arrested Reynolds without incident.
Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said, “This was great work getting a very violent offender off the street.”
Reynolds is in custody at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility on multiple charges from Oregon and several from Alabama. No bond has been set for Reynolds. He will be extradited to Oregon to be held accountable for his crimes.
