CRACK DEALER ARRESTED BY DRUG TASK FORCE
The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force executed a narcotics search warrant Monday, March 24th, at 226 Hawthorne Circle, Fort Walton Beach. The investigation was initiated after citizens voiced concerns that narcotics were being sold at this residence. Their concerns were based on routinely seeing multiple cars coming and going from the address at various hours throughout the day.
One of the residents of this address, 50-year old Judith L. Koran, has been arrested as part of an undercover operation. Koran sold crack to a confidential source on two separate occasions. As a result, she’s charged with two counts of possession of crack cocaine with intent to sell and two counts of sale of crack cocaine.
During the execution of the search warrant, drug paraphernalia with cocaine residue was seized, as well as various unidentified pills.
Additional charges are pending in this case.
