After months of investigations, on July 1, 2019, detectives from the Special Project's Unit (SPU) arrested Tyrie Walker for selling narcotics in and around the Unika Super Clean Laundry, located at 4100 NW 26 Street. He was booked into the Broward County Jail. In the days following Walker's arrest, SPU detectives continued to follow leads of Walker's criminal activities resulting in a search of his residence in Hollywood, FL. SPU detectives seized an amount of narcotics that is considered for trafficking charges.
Due to the insurmountable evidence gathered by SPU detectives, on September 26, 2019, the Broward County State Attorney's Office advised that they were proceeding with filing the original charges against Walker as follows:
- Four counts delivery of cocaine w/in 1000' of a convenience business
- One count possession cocaine with intent to sell, manufacturing or deliver
- One count possession of MDMA with intent to sell, manufacture and deliver
In addition, due to SPU detective's diligence, Walker will also face additional felony charges resulting from the narcotics seized during the search of his residence. Walker remains incarcerated.
On July 31, 2019, SPU detectives assisted the U.S. Marshal's service to capture fugitive Theodore Pittman, who was wanted for 27 counts of bank fraud and identity theft.
