The sheriff of Lee County is among those who have taken a strict approach in this regard. Sheriff Carmine Marceno, who hails from New York, is adopting a tough stance against criminals who believe they can "play" in his county. He has issued a warning that he will actively "hunt" and apprehend them.

The sheriff criticized liberal cities for attempting to avoid taking a firm stance against criminal behavior. "My message… is clear. If you think you can deal poison and commit crime, stay clear of Lee County and all the great state of Florida. We're ready, and we will absolutely find you, hunt you down, and charge you to force the extent of the law," he said in an interview with Fox News Digital.
