Drug House has been “CLOSED DOWN FOR BUSINESS”
At approximately 5:00 a.m. this morning, the OCSO Narcotics Task Force, along with the OCSO SRT Team and agents from FDLE and DEA, served a narcotics search warrant at 1124 NE 16 Avenue, Okeechobee, Florida. The search yielded marijuana, crack cocaine, an unknown substance (packaged for re-sale), loaded magazines, drug paraphernalia and $3,300.00 in US currency. Six subjects were arrested and face multiple charges. Additional information will be available at a later time.
Sheriff Noel E. Stephen stated, “We have been executing search warrants on this house for over thirty years. We will continue to do so as long as the residents continue to sell illegal narcotics. The people of this Community don’t deserve it nor will we allow it!!
