Highlights of Lauderhill Police Enforcement Activity - June
Last month, the Special Projects Unit (SPU) received a crime stoppers tip that drug sales were occurring from within the Food Store located at 4248 NW 12 Street.
On May 28, 2019, Lauderhill SPU detectives organized a controlled purchase operation and were able to buy marijuana from the store employee, later identified as Darron Deane (DOB 03/20/96), while inside the 12th Street Food Store. Following the purchase, on June 3, 2019, SPU obtained and executed a search warrant inside the store.
Deane was subsequently arrested and charged with ‘Delivery of Cannabis within 1000' of a Park'. At the time of his arrest, Deane was in possession of the amount of $3,454 which was seized pending forfeiture proceedings.
