The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group executed a narcotics related search warrant this morning at 120 Melrose Avenue, in Interlachen. The Sheriff’s Drug and Vice Unit began an investigation of this home after area residents complained about suspected drug activity.
During the two month undercover investigation, detectives purchased cocaine and narcotic pain killers from Antonio Passmore inside the home. Detectives determined that methamphetamine was also being manufactured inside the residence. While executing the search warrant, detectives recovered numerous items associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Passmore, who has two previous felony convictions for narcotics violations, was arrested on active warrants for the sale of cocaine and the unlawful sale of narcotic medications. Passmore was booked into the Putnam County Jail, were he is being held on a bond of $50,000.00
