Picture one is taken across from CVS on 441 Lady Lake. The unauthorized camera black pole on left still there but Camera gone.

Picture two is taken on CR 25 near Grand Oaks Resort. The camera pole is still there on the left in the background, camera gone.

These pictures seem to solve the question “were the unauthorized cameras in Lady Lake”? The answer is yes the pictures show proof of it. The next questions is who did the installation’s, Flock Security  did! who where they surveilling, for what reason were they surveilling, did the Lady Lake Town Council know about it? The answer is no the Lady Lake Town Council did not know about it !

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the camera’s and how they got authorized to be installed. They were not authorized by the Lake County Commission. I first heard about these cameras by a resident in Lady Lake. They said they have seen them all over. I probe and looked around for more sources of information. I started asking questions. I ran into many dead ends. Most residents did not know what they were for or who put them there. Continue reading

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office initiated Operation Basic Training during recent months, which was a joint investigation into a drug-trafficking organization operating throughout Central Florida. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Clermont, Leesburg, and Eustis Police Departments all worked together to investigate narcotics-related crimes committed by mid- to high-level dealers associated with the organization. The Special Investigations Bureau concluded Operation Basic Training on April 28, 2021 with the execution of two residential search warrants within the city limits of Leesburg and thirteen arrest warrants for individuals charged in connection with their involvement with dangerous drugs.

Detectives executed search warrants for one storage unit, one passenger car, and four residences. The long-term investigation resulted in the seizure of approximately $13,000 in U.S. currency and trafficking amounts of cocaine, crack cocaine, and methamphetamine. Detectives also seized several pounds of marijuana, cocaine-laced marijuana, and a small quantity of Oxycodone. The street value of the seized narcotics is estimated to be more than $50,000 dollars. Ten assorted firearms were recovered during the search warrants, four of which were reported stolen from other jurisdictions throughout Central Florida. Continue reading
