Nearly every news story about a drug dealer being taken off the streets is a good story in our books, and as far as drug addiction and Florida are concerned, we could certainly use fewer dealers in the state. St. Johns County Sheriff’s deputies arrested six people after the neighbors complained that they thought there was illegal drug activity at their house.
The Sheriff’s Office conducted a month-long investigation of the house, and included undercover officers who bought drugs at the house, according to the Sheriffs. The raid happened at 362 Varella Avenue, St. Augustine, on June 28, and out of the ten people deputies reported in the house, six were arrested. The residents arrested, in order of the seriousness of charges, are James Thomas Green, 55, James Richard Sewell, 25, David Albert Turner, 48, Jessica Lynell Hollars, 40, Justin Mikel Hansing, 44, and Sarah Lynn Meyer, 25.
