On Wednesday, September 28, 2016, police in Port St. Lucie arrested four people on drug charges. The police acquired drugs, two guns and cash following a raid on a home on Southeast Evergreen Terrace, according to the report.
The four individuals who were arrested ranged in ages from 23 to as young as only 14 years old.

One of the men and the woman faced the largest number of charges as the ringleaders. Those charges included eight felonies. Meanwhile, the teenage boy was arrested and charged with a single misdemeanor of possession of marijuana.
