Highlights from the Lauderhill Police Department - April 30th, 2020

  • On April 22nd, 2020, Special Projects Unit (SPU) detectives conducted surveillance on Jeff Obas where he was known to store an ice cream truck. With probable cause for his arrest, detectives watched him load the ice cream truck with food and a variety of other items, then followed him to various locations near Boyd Anderson High School.
    Once Obas drove into the City of Lauderhill, a traffic stop was initiated. He pulled over, ran to the back of the ice cream truck, dumped items into the deep fryer, then returned to the driver’s seat. SPU immediately searched ice cream truck and recovered a wad of white substance from the deep fryer.
    With the help of a K-9 officer and another partner, a thorough search of the ice cream truck revealed cocaine and over $1,700.00 in cash. Jeff Obas was arrested and charged with 6 offenses, including probation violations and possession with the intent to sell, manufacture, and deliver cocaine.
