Four individuals believed to be mid-level cocaine distributors have been arrested by the Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force in the past two days.
Late Monday evening (October 21), agents served a Search Warrant at 710 Legion Drive, Unit B-4, Destin, and seized 116 grams of cocaine in powder form, with a street value of approximately $6,000. Arrested at that address on charges of Trafficking in Cocaine were Tyana JoLeen Durand (pictured top left), age 20 (5-29-1982); Richard Bradley Galli (pictured top right), age 20 (1-24-1982); and Matthew Christopher Herring (pictured bottom left), age 19 (5-31-1983). In recent months, the Drug Task Force had developed information that the individuals at that residence had been smuggling Cocaine into Destin from the Atlanta area. An investigation developed sufficient probable cause for this week's Search Warrant.
Tuesday evening (October 22), a Search Warrant at 521 West Parkview Drive, Niceville, resulted in the seizure of 78 grams of "crack" cocaine in the form of six "cookies," eleven grams of cocaine in powder form, a shotgun, and an Acura automobile reported stolen in St. Petersburg. The resident, Caliste Isidore "AC" Henry (pictured bottom right), age 33 (6-14-1969) was arrested on charges of Trafficking in Cocaine, sale of Cocaine, and Auto Theft. The investigation leading to the Search Warrant for Henry's residence included four controlled purchases of cocaine in August, September, and October.
