The property was suspected of being used for the distribution of narcotics and when deputies arrived, they spotted a black SUV parked in the driveway of the abandoned property. The deputies formed a perimeter around the building and were able to see a light on inside of the abandoned property.
Deputies proceeded to knock on the door and identify themselves as police officers multiple times before making entry into the abandoned property. Once inside, deputies found one male who was then handcuffed and detained.
Precinct 6 K-9 Unit Deputy Holbert and K-9 Ka`ro arrived at the scene to assist in the searching of the residence. Deputy Garcia, Deputy Ruiz and Deputy Ipina also checked by and assisted in the search.
Upon further investigation, deputies were able to spot a TV monitor with a live camera feed of the exterior of the building. They also found a large bag containing a white hard powdery substance, multiple other small baggies on the table, and a razor blade. There was a strong smell of marijuana inside of the abandoned property and deputies observed a large hole in the ceiling where a large plastic bag could be seen peeking through the hole. Deputies retrieved the large bag from the ceiling and found multiple narcotics inside of the bag including, 275 grams of a green leafy substance, 202 grams of rectangular pills, a large white rock weighing 43 grams, smaller white rocks and $2,396 in cash.
Deputy Wingard contacted the District Attorney’s Office and the charge of Possession With the Intent to Deliver was accepted.
In total, deputies were able to recover the surveillance system, 4 cell phones, a razor with white residue, multiple scales, 10 packages of individual baggies, 55 grams of rock cocaine in plastic baggies, 49.95 grams of powder cocaine, 860 Xanax pills weighing 202 grams, 257 grams of a green leafy substance and $3,361 in cash.
