Subject arrested for trafficking ecstasy

On July 30, 2012, at approximately 10:09 am officers were dispatched to 511 West 6th Street in reference to assisting with the apprehension of a wanted felon. Officers met with the bail bond agents who made contact at the residence. Bail bond personnel had received information that the wanted felon, Tonyo Evans was inside the residence. After knocking on the door and announcing their presence officers could hear subjects running inside the house. Once inside the house, officers located three subjects. During a pat down of one subject, identified as Antonoro Nelson, 23, (B/M, DOB 12/19/88), the officer located 15.59 grams of MDMA (ecstasy) and an undisclosed amount of cash in his pockets. Officers also located marijuana in plain view inside the residence. A search of the house was conducted after the three subjects claimed that they were not occupants of the residence. Officers located 249.06 grams of marijuana, a Smith and Wesson 40 caliber semi automatic handgun, an Arminius .38 caliber revolver, extra boxes of ammo for the firearms and 2 small portable digital scales in the house. Antonoro Nelson was charged with trafficking in MDMA (ecstasy). A check on the firearms revealed that the Smith and Wesson 40 caliber handgun was reported stolen to Lakeland Police during a residential burglary in September 2011.

The investigation is continuing, with further charges possible.
