BUSTED Arrests Three Family Members After Serving a Search Warrant at Their Residence in Starke

On Thursday June 3, 2010 at approximately 6 am, Detectives with the Bradford Union Starke Task Force to Eradicate Drugs (BUSTED) arrested three family members during a pre-dawn raid.

For the past several weeks detectives from the multi-agency task force investigated illegal drug activity at the residence located at 914 Crosby Street in Starke, FL. Numerous drug transactions were documented by confidential informants which led to a search warrant being issued by Judge Johnny Hobbs.

Upon entry by officers, several subjects were discovered inside the residence. One of the occupants ran to the bathroom and flushed some suspected drugs down the toilet. He was subsequently subdued after being tasered.

The other occupants were detained until it was determined if probable cause existed for an arrest.

Sheriff Gordon Smith and Chief Jeff Johnson both said this was the fourth time they can remember in their 20 plus years of law enforcement a search warrant was served at this residence. The three arrested subject’s are family members and all reside at the residence.
