On February 18, 2019, Lauderhill Police responded to an incident involving a possible fentanyl (a.k.a. opioid) overdose where a victim was found unresponsive and lifeless. Members of the Lauderhill Fire Department were able to revive the victim who ultimately survived the incident. An investigation into the incident led to the identification of Jack Hunter, the suspected fentanyl dealer.
By the end of February 2019, members of the Special Project Unit (SPU) had made several undercover fentanyl purchases from Hunter and on April 8, 2019 conducted a buy/bust operation. During this operation, Jack Hunter (DOB 06/12/1979) was arrested for the following charges:
2 counts – Delivery of Fentanyl (a.k.a. opioid)
1 count – Delivery of Cannabis
1 count – Possession of Fentanyl w/intent to sell, manufacture, deliver
1 count – Violation of Pretrial Release
Jack Hunter is currently being held at the BSO jail without bond.
During our last article (below), we reported on March 25, 2019, members of the Special Project Unit (SPU) executed search warrants at two locations within the Hidden Forest Community, 2050 NW 43 Terrace #8 and 2070 NW 43 Terrace #4 and in both instances the suspects avoided arrests.
The suspect, for the first warrant, at 2050 NW 43 Terrace Apt. #8, where SPU detectives discovered marijuana being cultivated in a closet of the home, was identified as Roberto Hilman and arrested on April 4, 2019 for manufacturing cannabis.
The suspect, for the second warrant, of 2070 NW 43 Terrace #4, where SPU detectives located a trafficking amount of cocaine, two firearms, and various other narcotics, was identified as Quincy Adderly, a nine-time convicted felon.
On April 2, 2019, SPU detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Adderly and worked with the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force to bring the suspect to justice.
On April 12, 2019, Adderly was located in Oakland Park, FL and arrested for the following charges:
1 count – Possession Cocaine
1 count – Possession Marijuana w/intent to sell, manufacture, deliver
1 count – Possession Heroin
1 count – Possession of PVP-a (a.k.a. flakka)
1 count – Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding
As a result of this arrest, SPU detectives obtained a DNA warrant for Adderly’s DNA standard and swabs from the firearms located on March 25, 2019 and are being sent to DNA International for comparison.
Quincy Adderly is currently being held at the BSO jail with an $18,000 bond.
