Nine Arrests in Belleview Drug Bust

By on February 21st, 2014

Drug agents arrested nine people in Belleview on Thursday during the service of a search warrant.

The Ocala Police Department’s Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team was investigating the residents of 12250 SE 86th Ave. in the Belleview Ridge Estates after receiving complaints from neighbors.

While executing the search warrant, drug agents arrested Sylvester Welcome, 32, Sharla Welcome, 27, and Daniel Harshman, 36, according to a press release from OPD. All three already had arrest warrants, and Sylvester was also charged with one count of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

The Welcome’s children, an infant and a child under the age of two, were found in the home and put in the custody of other family members.

The agents seized 13 grams of crack cocaine, six grams of powder cocaine, 26 prescription pills, 16 grams of marijuana, a handgun and $586 from the house. Two more handguns were found in a truck on the property along with an additional $2,750.

After the initial arrests and seizures, the agents set up an operation in that area. Six people who showed up to purchase drugs were also arrested.
