Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Thanks to our citizens “seeing something and saying something,” our partnership with the State Attorney’s Office, and the great work of our Special Investigations Unit, Dana Hunter Calley is once again off our streets and safely behind bars where he can’t be a threat to our citizens and neighborhoods.
Calley is a convicted felon who has 12 prior felony charges and 4 prior misdemeanor charges as well.
To make matters even worse, Calley just recently got out of prison for trying to murder his brother and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
Calley has a history of abusing his drug of choice, either meth or heroin, and then walking around with an AR15 style rifle, which according to witnesses, he immediately started back doing as soon as he got out of prison and returned to his home in Cocoa, where he resides with his 86 year old mother.
Well thankfully, one our citizens reached out for Investigators at our State Attorney’s Office who then partnered with our Special Investigations Unit and Calley is “once again” off our streets.
The investigation was initiated in late August where evidence of drugs was established at Calley’s home, which by the way, is located just one street over from Fairglen Elementary School.
Agents worked diligently to establish enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant that was subsequently executed last Wednesday.
During the execution of the search warrant by our BCSO SWAT Team, Agents discovered an abundant amount of weapons, firearms, rifles, approximately 10,000 rounds of ammunition, ballistic vests, and a gas mask, that were all located in Calley’s specific areas of the residence.
Calley, who was not at home at the time the search warrant was served, was later taken into custody on September 21st by our GAMEOVER Task Force and was given a new home at “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge” where he was held on a “No Bond” status for Possession Of A Firearm and Ammunition By A Convicted Felon.
More charges are forthcoming as Agents continue to work with the State Attorney’s Office so that we can make sure this guy stays in prison this time.
Great job by our citizens, Investigators at the State Attorney’s Office, and Agents from our General Crimes Unit, Special Investigations Unit, and GAMEOVER Task Force, for getting this dirtbag off our streets and behind bars where he can’t put anyone else in danger!! And a huge “thank you” to Judge Kelly Ingram for recognizing the seriousness of Calley’s actions and for keeping him on a “No Bond” status in jail, right where he belongs!!
