An apparent crack cocaine lab has been shut down by the Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force.

Charged with Possession or Manufacture with Intent to Distribute Cocaine within 100-feet of a Child Care Facility, and with misdemeanor Possession on Marijuana, is Robbie Delmar Wheeler (pictured top left), age 27 (11-5-1976), of 1807 Whispering Oaks Lane, Fort Walton Beach.

A search warrant was served Sunday evening (October 24) at Wheeler's residence, after an anonymous telephone call to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office provided information that aided an ongoing investigation.

The search yielded evidence of crack cocaine preparation, a semi-automatic handgun, and approximately $9,000 cash.

Two individuals who arrived at the Wheeler residence during the execution of the search warrant were found to be in possession of a small quantity of cocaine. Eric Demond Wilson (pictured right), age 28 (4-20-1976), of Tuskegee, Alabama; and Termaine Lamar Jackson (pictured bottom left), age 22 (6-17-1982), no address listed, were both charged with Possession of Cocaine.

The investigation is continuing and additional charges are possible.
