Gang Member from Zoe Mafia Family Nabbed for Dealing Fentanyl, Cocaine in Hollywood

In Broward County, a man whom police recognized as a member of the Zoe Mafia Family gang had been involved in cocaine sales for approximately ten years. Recently, a detective revealed that fentanyl had been added to his transactions.

Tedrick Lewis was taken into custody by investigators at the ages of 18, 19, and 20 on suspicion of cocaine-related offenses, according to state records. He was convicted of eight felonies by the age of 22, one of which involved a weapon.

Documents indicate Lewis was on minimal custody when the Florida Department of Corrections released him from state prison little over a month after he turned 24.

Records indicate that on Friday, Lewis, 26, was in the Fort Lauderdale main jail following a tip from law enforcement that identified him as a Hollywood-based narcotics dealer going by the handle “Gucci.”

Lewis has been detained without bond since Wednesday after Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies obtained an arrest warrant from Broward County Circuit Judge Hunter Davis on Tuesday.

In April and May, Lewis was approached by an undercover Hollywood detective who claimed to have paid cash for cocaine and fentanyl during meetings near his Royal Ponciana residence.

Lewis sold, the detective reported.Two grams of cocaine in a “baggy” on April 26,.8 grams of cocaine in a “small tinfoil wrapped package” on April 23,.8 grams of cocaine on May 1, and one gram of cocaine on May 8.

Lewis lived close to Johnson Street and North Federal Highway. Later, detectives reported finding roughly 68.5 grams of cocaine, 3.4 grams of fentanyl, a scale, and baggies in his home.

Lewis was facing a third-degree felony allegation of unlawful use of a two-way communications device because it was alleged that he used his cell phone to arrange the narcotics trades.

Lewis is accused with false imprisonment, breaking into an occupied dwelling, and resisting arrest since he was allegedly hiding in a neighbor’s flat prior to his arrest.

Lewis is additionally charged with trafficking in 28 grams or more, but less than 200 grams, of cocaine; possession of MDMA; possession of firearms or ammunition by a convicted felon; and selling cocaine and fentanyl with the intent to sell, manufacture, or deliver the drug.

Lewis was awaiting a hearing to demonstrate that his bond would not be funded by the proceeds of his alleged crimes when a judge set his bond at $185,500.
