Brevard Sheriff's Office Conducts Precription Drug Sweep

COCOA, Florida — The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office conducted ‘Operation Summer Slam’ today – a law enforcement sweep designed to target those illegally distributing prescription medications and other controlled substances operating throughout central Brevard County.
During the past several months, narcotics purchases were made throughout the Cocoa area of Brevard County, Florida.  After those purchases were made, 28 arrest warrants were obtained for individuals who law enforcement says are responsible for illegally selling prescription medications such as Percocet, Lortab, Roxicodone and Oxycodone.
Charges for each of the suspects ranged from sale of a controlled substance to trafficking in controlled substances.
As of 5:00 p.m. today, 23 suspects have been arrested.  Members of the Sheriff’s Office are currently seeking the remaining wanted suspects.
All of the suspects that were arrested have been transported to the Brevard County Jail Complex.

Anyone with information regarding this operation or illegal drug sales are urged to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477)
All calls to CRIMELINE are confidential and callers can remain anonymous.
