BUNNELL, Fla. (AP) — Looking to stay at the Green Roof Inn? Probably not.
A Florida sheriff says rooms are available and a new retro-neon sign purchased with drug-seized assets features a blinking "vacancy" light.
Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly has dubbed the county jail the Green Roof Inn. A sign lists the amenities at the facility north of Daytona Beach. There is no privacy, group bathrooms and no meal selection.
But inmates do get free transportation to court and state prisons, designer handcuffs and leg irons, color coordinated jumpsuits and shoes.
A sign at the jail's exit lets inmates know the Green Roof Inn "always has a light on" and beds are available if they break the law again.
Staly says it's a warning that jail is not a "5-star hotel."
