WALTON COUNTY: Tuesday, May 12, investigators with the state’s Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement (OALE) obtained an arrest warrant for Allen Smith of Santa Rosa Beach in the May 5, 2020 Mussett Bayou wildfire in Walton County.

Allen Smith was subsequently located and arrested in reference to the active arrest warrant and was booked into the Walton County Jail without incident. Bond was set at $5,000. OALE is a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

“Recklessly burning illegal materials puts lives, lands, and property at risk. When that occurs, it’s our responsibility to take swift action and bring perpetrators to justice, just as has happened here,” said Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried. “Our hearts are with everyone who lost homes in this tragic fire. We’re thankful for the diligence of our Agricultural Law Enforcement officers and investigators and our Florida Forest Service wildland firefighters, and for the partnership of Walton County Sheriff Adkinson and his team.”
