OCALA –  The Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team (UDEST) and Marion County Sherriff’s SWAT team joined together in a narcotics investigation which ended in the arrest of 59-year-old Antonio Roberto Reynolds.

Through the course of the three-month investigation, agents made several controlled purchases of heroin and ecstasy from Reynolds according to a post on Marion County Sheriff’s Facebook page. The undercover drug purchases helped authorities obtain a search warrant for Reynolds’s residence at 3260 SE 32nd Court in Ocala.
