(WCTV-TV) Governor Rick Scott has named an Interim Liberty County Sheriff, a man named Carl Causey.
That announcement comes just after word of the arrest of current sheriff, 50 year old Nicholas Finch. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement booked Finch into the Liberty County Jail a little after 5 pm Tuesday.
Investigators say back in March, a Liberty County Sheriff's deputy made an arrest on a resident there for carrying a concealed firearm. FDLE believes shortly after the arrest, Finch released the suspect from jail, then altered or destroyed paperwork from the arrest.
