On today’s date, April 23, 2013, at approximately 5:00 AM, the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team (UDEST), with the assistance of Marion County Sheriff’s Office SWAT, Ocala Police Department SWAT, and the Dunnellon Police Department, executed 3 search warrants on McKinney Ave. in Dunnellon, FL. These search warrants resulted from investigations conducted by Agents with UDEST. The following were arrested as a result:

• Sale Cocaine x 2
• Possession Cocaine x 2

B/M Charles Thomas, Jr. DOB 01/06/1974 – Arrested at 20717 W. McKinney Ave.

All three were booked into the Marion County Jail on the listed charges – charges on Jones and Vickers stemmed from arrest warrants already obtained by UDEST Agents, plus additional charges added as a result of the search warrants. Thomas’ charges were a result of the early morning search warrants. The house located at 20701 W. McKinney Ave. was unoccupied and found to be a “stash” house; much property was found inside and will be looked into further by MCSO’s Property Crimes Unit in order to determine whether or not the property is stolen.
The success of this operation was due to the great cooperative efforts by the agencies and units listed above.
