NAIL SHOP OWNER ARRESTED ON MULTIPLE DRUG CHARGES
The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force executed a search warrant Friday at a home/business on Duval Street off Racetrack Road and arrested the homeowner/business owner on numerous drug charges. 48-year old Florencia “Fia” Crusio-Moore, the owner of Fia’s Nails and Alternations, was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, trafficking in hydrocodone, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The search warrant action was the result of an investigation that involved multiple undercover buys at the address.
The search today at 309 Duval turned up more than five pounds of marijuana; some of it packaged in forty-dollar baggies for sale. In addition, investigators found hydrocodone packaged for sale, as well drug paraphernalia, cocaine, and Xanax. The home has an elaborate bar set up directly behind it.
Moore has reported her business as the victim of multiple burglaries as well as a home invasion robbery by two armed men on January 11th. Investigators say those reported crimes are likely the result of Crusio-Moore’s drug activities.
