Jones says constant harassment by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office resulted in his leaving the home and moving out of the county.Bob Croslin / for NBC News SHARE THIS June 6, 2021, 6:00 AM EDT By Olivia Solon and Cyrus Farivar Five months after Robert Jones, a 44-year-old aerospace process auditor, moved to what he described as a “really nice” neighborhood of Gulf Harbors in Pasco County, Florida, with his girlfriend and four kids, “seven or eight” police cars showed up at his door. Officers said they had heard about his then-16-year-old son Bobby’s school delinquency from colleagues in Pinellas County, where the family previously lived, and wanted to make sure he understood that the Pasco Sheriff’s Office did things a little differently, Jones recalled. Bobby had been expelled from his last school after he was caught smoking pot and then got into a fight with another student. But both he and his dad had hoped the move to Pasco County would provide a fresh start. “Truthfully, I thought it was one of these ‘scared straight’ moments,” said Jones, referring to the sheriff’s office’s intimidating welcome to the neighborhood. Officers said they wanted to come in and talk to his kids, and Jones said he let them. Within seconds they had their flashlights on and were, Jones said, “running rampant” without a search warrant. The police report stated that Jones consented to a search. But he disputes this. They scoured the house and found empty zip-close bags in his son’s room that later tested positive for traces of marijuana. Bobby was arrested and spent three weeks in juvenile detention before his trial, where the judge dismissed the charges due to the lack of measurable marijuana. He had been at his new school for just over a week.
