A great deal of illegal drugs and drug money has been taken off the streets thanks to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office VICE/Narcotics Unit and Patrol Bureau.
On May 14, 2015, members of the WSCO teams executed a probable cause search warrant at 226 Central 8th Street in Santa Rosa Beach. The search warrant was part of an extensive investigation into the distribution of illegal narcotics.
In their search investigators discovered over a pound of marijuana, cocaine, Xanax, Hydrocodone, drug paraphernalia, and over $8,000 in US currency.
