The Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit arrested a 19-year-old Crawfordville man in connection with the execution of a search warrant at 89 Jenny Lynn Road in Crawfordville Monday, April 20 at 10:30 p.m., according to Sheriff David Harvey.
Detectives seized approximately 3.25 pounds of marijuana and $12,715 in cash from Robert Dean Holt (pictured at left). During the drug investigation, officials learned that Holt had allegedly been selling marijuana from his home. Two controlled purchases were conducted during the undercover operation.
Sheriff Harvey said law enforcement officials discovered marijuana in 27 Mason jars in a bedroom along with three firearms, a .357 revolver, 9mm semi-automatic handgun and 20 gauge shotgun. A search of a shed in the back yard revealed a safe-type box which contained the cash. Drug paraphernalia was also located in the bedroom.
The marijuana was weighed and totaled 1,474.2 grams. In addition, $458 was seized from Holt prior to his transport to the Wakulla County Jail. He was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, display of a firearm during a felony and possession of cannabis more than 20 grams.
During the execution of the search warrant, Holt drove into his driveway with Matthew Paul Schroeder, 19, of Crawfordville (pictured at right). Schroeder was detained after the narcotics unit discovered burned marijuana cigarettes in the vehicle. The marijuana weighed 11.6 grams and Schroeder was charged with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams.
Both men were taken to the Wakulla County Jail without incident. Captain Cliff Carroll, Lt. Danny Harrell, Deputy Nick Boutwell, Reserve Officer David Renna and Detectives Rob Giddens and Sean Wheeler investigated.
