Cedric Carr before his arrest
|Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd wasted no time taking a jab at a career criminal who had taunted him on Facebook. Sheriff Judd took to Facebook to announce the arrest of Cedric Carr, of Mulberry, in a slightly different way.|
“It’s not usually a good idea to taunt the Sheriff’s Office on Facebook. Yes Cedric Carr, we stopped your show…” wrote Sheriff Judd on Facebook.
