“This was no small operation, given the large amount of drugs, weapons and cash recovered. Some people will say that dealing drugs is a victimless crime; however, when you put drugs, weapons and cash together, this is the perfect combination for violence in our community,” said Sheriff Ken Mascara. “Friday’s arrest is one of the biggest in the last decade, and it is a big win for our agency and our community in that it sends other dealers a strong message: we will not tolerate the sale and distribution of these deadly drugs in our community, and we will continue to work tirelessly to bring those responsible to justice.”
The PBSO – Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit, Port St. Lucie Police Department and DEA assisted in this investigation.
Ray was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail on a $153,000 bond.
