Sheriff posts 'drug house closed' sign in front of Florida home
OKEECHOBEE COUNTY, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - A sign stating "this drug house closed for business" was planted in front of a Florida home that has been searched multiple times for drugs.
The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office posted about the home on Facebook. They said that at 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning, their Narcotics Task Force, with the help of the county's SRT team and agents from the FDLE and DEA, served a narcotics search warrant to the home on NE 16th Avenue.
The search reportedly yielded marijuana, crack cocaine, an unknown substance that was packaged for re-sale, loaded magazines, drug paraphernalia, and $3,300 in U.S. currency. Six people were arrested and face multiple charges.
Sheriff Noel E. Stephen stated that "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."
