AG Moody, McGruff and NASCAR Driver Joey Gase Launch a New Crime Prevention Partnership Ahead of Daytona 500 Race Weekend to Wave the Red Flag on Fentanyl
Attorney General Ashley Moody, McGruff the Crime Dog®, the National Crime Prevention Council and NASCAR driver Joey Gase are waving the red flag on fentanyl by launching a new crime-prevention campaign ahead of the Daytona 500 race weekend. On Saturday, Gase will drive his #53 Ford Mustang adorned with McGruff’s image and the message: Go For Real™—as part of a nationwide campaign warning teens not to purchase counterfeit products.
Additionally, Attorney General Moody is warning about the proliferation of counterfeit pills containing deadly amounts of illicit fentanyl—reminding Floridians that just one pill can kill. The public-safety message is the first of many new adventures between the Florida Attorney General’s Office, McGruff and the NCPC.
Attorney General Ashley Moody said, “I’m excited to stand with McGruff and Joey against counterfeit products—especially fake pills containing fentanyl that are killing record numbers of Americans. This weekend, many people will see Joey’s #53 car and McGruff’s image and be reminded that they can help ‘Take A Bite Out Of Crime.’ We look forward to working with the National Crime Prevention Council to deliver many more public-safety messages to Floridians in the coming months and years.”
