PALM BEACH COUNTY
Officers from the South A Region’s Jupiter Field Office conducted a saturation patrol in conjunction with Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies at the Corbett WMA. The saturation patrol was the first of a series of operations set up with one of our agency partners targeting criminal activity in a WMA. The operation generated three misdemeanor Cannabis/ Drug Paraphernalia arrests, nine-day use permit violations with notices to appear issued, two misdemeanor off trail notices to appear issued and one warning issued for a day-use permit violation. Additional operations will be forthcoming.
Investigator Booth and Officer Merizio were conducting land patrol in the J.W. Corbett WMA when they observed a red, Toyota Tundra traveling eastbound towards their fully-marked patrol vehicle. They initiated a traffic stop on the Toyota Tundra and made contact with the driver of the truck. Investigator Booth asked the operator if he had a day-use permit in order to be in the J.W. Corbett WMA, and he stated "no." Investigator Booth then asked the operator if he had a driver’s license and he also stated "No, it's bad." A license check revealed that his license had been suspended five previous times for driving while license suspended and/or revoked. It was determined that the subject’s license was revoked, as a habitual traffic offender, until 2016. The subject was then placed under arrest for felony traffic violations. The subject was issued a uniform traffic citation accompanied by a mandatory court date for driving while license suspended/revoked, 2nd or subsequent offense. The subject was also issued a citation for no day-use permit in a WMA. The vehicle was towed from the scene and the subject was transported to the Palm Beach County Jail without incident.I like this one
While on land patrol, Officer Warne observed a subject trespassing behind a fence on Florida Power and Light (FPL) property. The subject was fishing in an FPL water-cooling discharge lake. Officer Warne approached the subject and identified him by his driver's license. A records check indicated that the subject was recently issued a citation for trespassing in the same location earlier in the month. The subject advised Officer Warne that he needs to be arrested because he is just going to continue to trespass to fish. Officer Warne placed the subject under arrest for the violation and Officer Sullivan transported him to the Broward Sheriff’s main jail. In the subject’s property were eight debit/credit cards in several different peoples’ names. An investigation will be conducted to determine if these cards were obtained or are being used without the owner’s consent.
Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

I love the challenge of hunting public land. It takes a balance of offence and defense.

Seems like a productive use of tax dollars.
I'm not so sure that a "saturation patrol" = "huge sting".
