Search warrant leads to drug arrest

The Sheriff’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team, Special Investigations detectives, and the Drug Enforcement Administration executed a search warrant Tuesday at 12:30 P.M. on Stock Island.

The warrant was served at 35-A 8th Avenue. As entry was made through the front of the trailer, 19 year old Jack Dennis Cantres ran out the back and was detained by detectives. The search turned up a half of a cookie of crack cocaine, the equivalent of about 45 crack cocaine rocks. Also found were  131 grams of powdered cocaine, 202 grams of marijuana and scales with drug residue. Detectives seized $4,841.00 in suspected drug proceeds. Several chickens on the property were turned over to the Florida Keys SPCA.

Cantres was arrested and charged with trafficking in cocaine and felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell. He also faces charges of possession of a counterfeit drivers license, and possession of drug paraphernalia. More charges are still pending.
