During a sentencing hearing Tuesday, February 6, Caisy Frank, was sentenced to life in prison as a Prison Releasee Reoffender for committing an auto burglary and stealing a firearm in Flagler County.
In November 2023, a jury found him guilty of Burglary while Armed with a Firearm, Grand Theft (Firearm), Possession of Firearm by Convicted In-State Felon, Fraudulent Use of Credit Card, two counts of Grand Theft and Fraudulent Use of Personal Identification Information.
Frank was arrested on March 30, 2021 after analysts in the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Real Time Crime Center (RTCC) were able to pinpoint the location of the suspect vehicle to John D. McArthur State Park in North Palm Beach, and notified Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) who caught him in the act of burglarizing more vehicles and then led FWC on a chase. At the time he was a fugitive wanted in both Georgia and New York.
“This is one of the cases that shows how important our RTCC is to solving crimes and stopping a dangerous criminal. Without our RTCC and advancements in technology that we have implemented since I’ve been Sheriff, it would have taken much longer to solve this case,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Due to the hard work and training of our RTCC analysts and coordination with FWC, this convicted felon and multiple state repeat offender proved he is not capable of rehabilitation and now gets to live out the rest of his life behind bars.”
Frank still has similar counts pending from other counties throughout the state of Florida.
