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.
When SWAT members and UDEST agents searched his home, they seized 151 oxycodone pills, 79 hydromorphone pills, 30 buprenorphine pills, marijuana, paraphernalia, $2,786 in cash and an elaborate surveillance system.
Reynolds was booked on numerous felony drug charges including trafficking, possession with intent to sell and possession of illegal narcotics.
Reynolds is currently being held in the Marion County Jail on a $132,000 bond.
