Seminole County Crackdown: 19 Taken Into Custody in Marijuana Sting

Nineteen individuals were apprehended on Saturday evening during a raid on a marijuana pop-up shop near Casselberry, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies reported conducting an operation aimed at the pop-up located on Winter Woods Boulevard near State Road 436.

Investigators stated that two undercover agents, possessing presale tickets, underwent a weapons check before gaining entry to a confined space within a building.

They revealed finding what seemed to be vendors offering significant quantities of packaged marijuana arranged on tables.

According to investigators, before the undercover agents were “compromised and the vendors began to pack their narcotics to leave,” Angel Oscar Seda Rivera sold one of the agents 10 grams of suspected marijuana for $40.

According to an arrest record, many law enforcement officers then broke into the facility to stop “the destruction and removal of evidence” and to apprehend the perpetrators.

When deputies pulled up to Arsenio De’Shawn Rivera and Alexandra Ruemmeley’s Jeep in the parking lot, they found two weapons, a bag containing 28 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, and 2,696 grams of probable marijuana.

The arrest report stated, “It should be noted that the two initially appeared to be going inside the building to set up shop.”

Matthew Winckel was riding in a car when deputies allegedly found three grams of THC wax and six grams of probable marijuana. Oscar Pastrana was allegedly found in a car with 237 grams of suspected marijuana and a pistol.

The following objects were found inside the building, according to agents:

Alphonso Coney and Lamika Harvey were reportedly found to have 3,882 pounds of suspected marijuana and related goods on their table by deputies.

Chase Gibson, Dominic Warren-Henderson, Anthony Testman, and Austin Goldstein were among the alleged clients.

Warren-Henderson reportedly said out of the blue, “I didn’t cop (expletive); I just got here.”

According to investigators, Jose Vega Figueroa was patting down customers as they entered the store and had a key to the room.

They alleged that Geovanny Morales was collecting tickets at the front door, and Kassim Forbes, a security guard, had a tiny amount of suspected marijuana on him.
