MINNEOLA, Fla. — Lake County deputies arrested a man on Wednesday after the man claimed to be working as an undercover federal agent according to a sheriff’s department spokesperson.

Deputies charged 31-year-old James Marshall Hoskinson with driving with a suspended driver’s license and selling heroin within 1000 feet of a place of worship or business.

Police detained Hoskinson after learning he was driving with a suspended license. While detained, Hoskinson reportedly told Street Crimes Deputies that he was working as an undercover Federal Agent multiple times before he was transported to the Lake County Jail.
