LAKE COUNTY, Fla. (WKEF/WRGT) - A sheriff in Florida is going viral after sending out a very plain and simple message to heroin dealers: "we're coming for you."

In a video posted to the department's Facebook page, Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell stands at a podium flanked by deputies in black ski masks. The sheriff says his office has been getting more and more calls from citizens who are concerned about the heroin problem in the community. Grinnell tells dealers that the department is "coming for you" and goes even further saying "our undercover agents have already bought heroin from many of you, we are simply awaiting the arrest warrants to be finalized."

"Enjoy trying to sleep tonight," Grinnell says to dealers who he says his department already knows about and is ready to bust, "we are coming for you," he says, "run."

As of this post, the department's video has been shared more than 12,000 times.
