Volusia-Flagler investigators arrest 10, seek more in heroin ring bust … – Daytona Beach News

When SWAT burst through the door of an accused drug dealer Friday morning, the suspect froze, looked frightened and was wearing only a pair of underwear.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood relayed that story later in the day to the media — and he took great satisfaction telling it.

“He was shaking like a little punk,” Chitwood said of the suspect, identified as Julian Miller. “He was scared to death because a SWAT team came crashing through his door with his kid (lying) next to him. In the meantime, how many parents in this community are grieving because of the loss of a (child) because of what that little scumbag has done?”

PHOTOS: Crowbar flies through windshield on Daytona Beach highway

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WFLA) — A driver was lucky to walk away without injury after a crowbar flew through a truck windshield in Daytona Beach.

The Daytona Beach Fire Department posted terrifying pictures of the close call on Twitter.

They say the pickup truck was driving on I-95 behind a semi-truck when the semi drove over the crowbar.

That sent it flying through the air before it eventually crashed through the truck’s windshield on the driver’s side.

The driver of the truck was not injured.

MILLER PLACE, NY — Attorney John Ray brought PIX11 to a row of large storage sheds in the back lot of his law office in Miller Place, Long Island. He showed us stacks of boxes with legal files.
