Two Suspected Heroin Dealers Arrested


A search warrant executed by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at a Destin home Wednesday led to the arrest of two suspected heroin and crack cocaine dealers.

65-year old Leroy Figures and 31-year old Jessica Rae Hinds of Destin are charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. In addition Figures is charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and Hinds with Resisting an Officer with Violence as well as Felony Violation of Probation.

Deputies searched the home at 403 Azalea Drive and found a .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun, ammunition, crack cocaine, heroin, and drug paraphernalia. The packaging of the drugs was indicative of distribution and deputies also found an “owe sheet” indicating debts owed and debts paid inside a box with some of the heroin.

Hinds was found hiding under a pile of blankets in a back bedroom.
