A Florida sheriff known for cracking down on illegal drugs arrested his own daughter on suspicion of trafficking meth amid ongoing war on addictive substances in the state.
Franklin County Sheriff A.J. Smith gave a statement on April 19 confirming that his daughter, Kristen Kent, had been arrested under suspicion of meth trafficking two days prior.
“Methamphetamine does not discriminate [and] neither do we,” Smith wrote on the office’s Facebook. “It does not matter who you are – no one is immune or exempt.”
“Our hearts break over the grief meth causes all – whether you use it, sell it or love someone who is involved with it. If you want to break free from this lifestyle, we want to help you.” the post added
The sheriff’s office charged Kent with trafficking methamphetamine 14 grams or over, drug equipment possession and/or use and cocaine possession.
The sheriff is known for cracking down on meth trafficking in his jurisdiction, and the sheriff’s department operates with the motto “We don’t meth around.”
