Marijuana found in Flagler County jail, probationary civilian employee arrested
A probationary Flagler County Sheriff’s Office civilian CCTV Operator at the Flagler County Detention Facility was arrested Tuesday, May 1, after being charged with the introduction of contraband into a detention facility, according to a news release by the FCSO.
During a routine inspection by the office’s K-9 units, K-9 Tag alerted deputies to a locker in the employee area of the jail. The locker was assigned to Victoria Ferguson. Under three grams of marijuana was found in Ferguson’s purse.
“I’m very disappointed that a Sheriff’s Office employee would violate our drug free workplace and other policies and bring drugs into the jail,” Sheriff Rick Staly said in a release. “I will not tolerate employees tarnishing the good reputation of our agency and the many men and women that work hard to serve our community in an ethical and professional manner.”
