Mullinsiana: Joe Mullins, the Flagler County commissioner turned narc detective, has been inspiring all sorts of theories after almost single-handedly bringing drug dealing in Flagler to a halt earlier this week. Another reader writes: “He asks his real drug dealer to pick out a patsy the real dealer wants to put in a jam, perhaps a kid who couldn’t pay his bill, and set him up by telling him he can work of his debt, get high and avoid a permanent limp all by texting a certain # and delivering drugs the real dealer provides. Kid gets busted but doesn’t dare rat out the real dealer who set him up and has no way of being tied to Joe unless the real dealer rolls on Mullins. The rest is a story on FlaglerLive.”
