Jerry Sneed, 33, was arrested on August 12, 2021 by the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) after a two-month investigation. The investigation revealed Sneed was selling illegal narcotics out of a residence located near the 1700 block of Joe Louis Street and the 3900 block of Reserve Drive.
Probable cause was developed during the course of the investigation and on August 12th, members of TPD’s General Narcotics Unit, Drug Interdiction Unit, Technical Operations Unit, Violent Crimes Response Team, Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving Squad, K9, and Air-1 executed a search warrant at each residence.
In addition to the residential searches, detectives searched the arrestee’s vehicle and discovered concealed compartments, which required magnets and hidden buttons to open. These sophisticated compartments are often used for transporting and trafficking large amounts of illegal narcotics. The arrestee’s vehicle was subsequently seized for forfeiture.
In total, the result of the searches yielded over 2.7 kilograms of cocaine, 52 grams of Alpha-PVP, a stolen gun with ammunition, drug paraphernalia and $231,777 in cash.
Sneed was arrested “for trafficking cocaine, trafficking phenethylamines, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of Alpha-PVP, possession of paraphernalia, manufacturing cocaine, maintaining a drug house, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, grand theft of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.”
