FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. -

A 22-year-old Palm Coast man was arrested Wednesday on charges of cultivation of marijuana, violation of probation and possession of drug paraphernalia, the Flagler County Sheriff's Office says.

Douglas Tyler was arrested at his home in the 100 block of Hernandez Lane in the Hammock area around 8:20 a.m. by the sheriff's office's Special Investigations Unit. The sheriff's SWAT team and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement assisted.

Flagler County Sheriff James L. Manfre credits tips from local citizens to the successful outcome of the one-month long investigation.

“We received several citizen tips of drug activity at this residence. We quickly responded to those tips, launched an investigation and today made this arrest,” said Sheriff Manfre. “We depend on the community to help us keep their neighborhoods safe. I encourage other residents to report suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.”

Tyler was being held in the Flagler County Inmate Facility on $6,000 bond on the drug charges and no bond on the violation of probation.

Additional charges may be pending, deputies said.
