CCSO Detention Deputy Arrested on Drug Charges, Fired

GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- The Clay County Sheriff's Office has arrested one of its own.
 
According to a release from the sheriff's office, 30-year-old Larry Allen Labay Jr., a Detention Bureau deputy, was fired after being arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Labay had already been on administrative leave since last month, the release said, when allegations of narcotics activity first surfaced.

After investigating, his fellow deputies obtained a warrant and arrested him.  Labay's bond was set at $752 on the drug possession charge and the judge released him on his own recognizance for the paraphernalia charge.

There's no word on when Labay will be in court, but the sheriff's office said it would release more information about his arrest on Tuesday.

"When the police came to our house to file a report he told us that the bike was found abandoned in the street and is currently in the police property room.  So at least we got the bike back," said Wainwright.

Taking a Weekend Trip to Orlando? Don't Order Pizza

Remember the pizza-flyer scam talked about in January?

Police were concerned that the flimsy pieces of paper advertising $9.99 pizza pies and a 1-800 number were really scams to get hungry tourists to fork over their credit card information. Florida legislators ultimately passed a law - with Walt Disney World's backing - to crack down on flyer distribution.
