Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Final evening, whereas we have been all sleeping protected and sound in our beds, North Precinct Deputy Nick Villacres was as soon as once more arresting Marcus Periods for being a drug seller.
I say “as soon as once more” as a result of the man has a prolonged rap sheet and can be presently out on bond for comparable fees the place he was arrested simply final month by Rockledge PD for nearly the identical precise factor.
This man is an already convicted felon who has carried out time in jail for different drug fees, he will get out of jail and goes again to his similar ole crap the place he will get arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of methamphetamine, simply final month, after which is out on bond doing the identical factor.
As I’ve mentioned earlier than, the definition of madness is doing the identical factor again and again and anticipating a distinct end result.
He’s a repeat offender who will simply maintain repeating crime till somebody lastly locks his butt up for good.
Final evening, he was arrested by Nick after he was sitting in a suspicious automobile on the Parrish Medical Heart in Port St. John. Periods was a passenger within the entrance seat of the automobile and when approached by Deputy Villacres he was noticed making furtive actions in the direction of an open backpack at his toes.
Deputy Villacres instantly noticed a black object contained in the bag that resembled a gun at which period Periods was given instructions to not attain towards the bag.
Periods responded that it was not a gun however a reproduction gun that’s truly a lighter after which very correctly stored his fingers approach away from the bag whereas Deputy Villacres eliminated the merchandise which was designed to resemble a Glock handgun.
When eradicating the merchandise, Deputy Villacres noticed a plastic baggie contained in the backpack that contained a purple powdery substance that later subject examined constructive for fentanyl.
The substance weighed 6.7 grams and if put right into a deadly dose could be sufficient fentanyl to kill 3,350 folks.
Mockingly, after being learn his rights, Periods denied possession of the bag and the fentanyl inside saying that he didn’t know what was within the bag.
Humorous, how he knew the duplicate gun lighter that was within the bag was a lighter and never a gun, however didn’t know concerning the different stuff.
I ponder if that’s as a result of the duplicate gun that was within the bag might have gotten him shot and killed if he had touched it and the poison that was in his backpack might kill the folks he was peddling it to.
Nicely both approach his butt acquired locked up in “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge” on a “No Bond” standing for Trafficking in Fentanyl and hopefully our first look Choose will maintain him locked behind bars this time the place he belongs.
Nice job Nick for taking this man off our streets and thanks for standing guard to maintain evil away “Whereas We Had been Sleeping!”
