The “war on drugs” continues in America. Arrests and prosecutions for drug-related charges seem to always be in the news. The St. Lucie County, Florida area is no exception.
A recent undercover crack cocaine buy resulted in the arrest of seven people in Fort Pierce. St. Lucie County Sheriff’s drug investigators were responsible for the arrests. Police reportedly seized 11 grams of cocaine from the Fort Pierce house during the raid. Two of the people arrested in this operation were charged with possession of drug equipment, resisting an officer without violence, and cocaine possession with intent to sell, manufacture, or deliver. Five of those arrested were charged with possession of drug equipment.
