Sheriff Sends Out Warning, Left Loses It After Noticing What's Behind Him (Video)

A sheriff in Tavares, Florida posted a video to his agency's Facebook page on Friday warning heroin dealers that his agents are coming for them. Behind the sheriff stand undercover agents wearing masks, dressed in combat attire and holding guns. The powerful message was meant to intimidate the criminal element. The video has gone viral.

Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell posted the video and spoke directly to heroin dealers. He warns them that police are on their tail and that they've probably already made drug deals with undercover officers. It's a matter of time, he warns, until the department gets the paperwork in order.

"So, to the dealers, I say enjoy looking over your shoulder constantly wondering if today is the day we come for you," said Grinnell. Enjoy trying to sleep tonight, wondering if tonight's the night our SWAT team blows your door off the hinges. We are coming for you."

Grinnell warns that dealers will be charged with murder for any heroin users who die of an overdose.

Over the weekend, the message went viral, though some felt it was a little over the top.

"I was a little shocked with the black mask over the face. I mean, come on, these are everyday policemen, are they not? I thought it was kind of shocking," said Denise Beique, a Lake County resident, to News 6.

Some even compared the video to an ISIS threat.

Grinnell doesn't care. "There are those that may say it was over the top. Well, if the message got out that A., our citizens can call us and remain anonymous, and B., that the drug dealers move out of this county, I'm OK with that," Grinnell said.

"My drug agents live that world every day, that dark and dangerous world. They wanted to be a part of that proactive stance in that video because they're undercover -- they have to wear masks. It's a state statute, but I was glad that they wanted to participate in that," the sheriff added.
