Now that families are starting to return to their homes children may have questions about what caused the chaos they have been through. Here are some links that are kid friendly and might help them understand better.

MUGSHOT MONDAY On October 10, 2018 an LHPD officer got out with a suspicious person that was riding on a bicycle writing notes about houses in a notebook. The officer was unable to identify the subject who gave a false name as "Austin King". Due to a high priority call that came through, the subject was let go. On October 28, 2018, officers with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, who are working with the Lynn Haven Police Department, noticed the same subject riding a bike at night with no lights on the bicycle. Again the subject gave a false name of "Austin King". Officers tried to confirm the subject's identity by comparing tattoos on his right hand knuckles and by a crown tattoo on the left side of his chest but were unable to get a match. After nearly an hour of trying to identify the subject, he was released on scene. Shortly afterwards, a Bay County Sheriff's Officer contacted LHPD and advised the subject was Coty Austin Walker, His booking photo was pulled up and the officer was able to positively identify him. Officers BOLO'd the area and found Walker in the area of SR 390 and Carla Ln. The officer called Coty by name, which angered Mr. Walker at the discovery of his real identity. He began to resist arrest but then stopped. Coty was arrested for Providing a False Name to Law Enforcement Officers on both occasions and he was transported to the Bay County Jail. Further identification was provided by jail staff by using fingerprint confirmation.

LHPD's FRIDAY FEEL GOOD MOMENT LHPD would like to recognize the citizens and residents of Bay County. Those that came out after Hurricane Michael to help restore our power and water. Those that cleared our streets and picked up our debris and trash. Those leaders of our community that guided us and did not sleep to make sure that we were taken care of and had what we needed to get back on our feet. Those Officers, Firefighters, EMS, and Communication Officers that stood by to take care of our families while leaving behind their families. The neighbors that helped neighbors with chainsaws and tarps. The volunteers that served us food and gave us clean water. The strangers that gave us a hug and knew what to say to comfort us. Those that gave the last of what they had to help another. Generally, we never know what another person may be going through, but on October 10, 2018, we were all going through the same trial at the same time. And from that day on, we all stood on common ground. We have forgotten any biases, any prejudices. We are neighbors helping neighbors and strangers helping strangers. We all understand the loses. We have cried together and have laughed together. We have all become closer and we have become stronger. We are no longer just citizens or residents or members of a community. We have become a family. Don't let the world know us by the devastation this hurricane caused, but let the world know us as the family this hurricane brought together. Let them see us getting up and dusting ourselves off and going to work.

Due to our telephone lines being out of service, please contact the Bay County Sheriff's Office non-emergency line at (850) 747-4700. For emergencies, please call 911.

The Lynn Haven Police Department would like to thank the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, and the St. Augustine Police Department for all of their help and assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. They showed that the best antidote for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: he or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served. The happiest people we have come to know are those who lost themselves in the service of others. Thank you St. Johns County and St. Augustine PD, who will be leaving us shortly, and thank you Pasco County who will be with us a little longer. Your help and assistance has been immeasurable.
