Five Daytona Beach Drug Dealers Arrested

/

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Five Daytona Beach residents now face felony drug trafficking charges after officers with the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) executed a search warrant yesterday afternoon at a home near Tuscawilla Park.

DBPD’s Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Unit entered the residence at 1118 Live Oak Avenue at 8:39 a.m. Tuesday (April 13, 2021) after getting the search warrant signed by a Volusia County judge earlier in the day. 

Officers discovered 5.5 grams of fentanyl, 2.1 grams of cocaine and various kinds of drug paraphernalia in the home, including glass smoking devices, digital scales and syringes, according to POP Unit Captain Scott Lee.

“The investigation started last month after several residents in the neighborhood reported narcotics activity at this location,” Lee added. “We want to thank those people for coming forward. That kind of information helps us do our job in ridding the streets of drugs and those who deal them.”
