Blue Angels License Plates Will Be Distributed This Saturday

August 4, 2021

Those highly-anticipated Blue Angels specialty Florida license plates will be issued during a special event Saturday, according to Escambia County Tax Collector Scott Lunsford.

The event will be held at the Escambia County Tax Collector’s Marcus Pointe office at 6451 North W Street beginning at 8 a.m. It will be open to anyone who has purchased a presale voucher and who makes an appointment for the event. Visit to schedule an appointment.

Redeeming a voucher will require a license plate replacement fee of $36.90, as mandated by Florida laws, in addition to the previously paid voucher fee. If an applicant’s registration is being renewed at the same time as the voucher redemption, the replacement fee will be added to the renewal. Motorists should bring their proof of Florida insurance when redeeming their voucher.

Those who did not purchase a presale voucher may acquire a Blue Angels specialty plate at or by visiting an office location during regular business hours beginning August 9.

In September 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law approving the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation’s Blue Angels specialty license plate. On October 1, 2020, the Escambia County Tax Collector, in partnership with the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, began accepting online voucher orders to collect the 3,000 commitments needed for production to begin.

Cottage Hill Woman Allowed Juvenile To Steal Delivery Package, ECSO Says

August 4, 2021

A Cottage Hill woman was charged by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office for allegedly allowing a juvenile to steal a recently delivered package.

Camie DeNean Linton, 39, was charged with felony contributing to the delinquency of a minor and petit theft.

Linton allegedly drove a juvenile in her care to Williams Ditch Road where she allowed the juvenile to steal the package. The package was removed from the top of a trash can that is designed with spray paint as being for FedEx and UPS deliveries, and the can is chained to a fence, according to the ECSO. The package contained car parts valued at $100.

Both Linton and the juvenile told deputies they believed the package was garbage because it was on top of the trash can, an arrest report states.

The relationship between Linton and the juvenile and his age were redacted from the arrest report.
