Florida group faces potential drug trafficking charges

Florida readers may be interested to learn about an investigation into several people that occurred recently at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Those under police scrutiny include two men and the adult daughter of each. The foursome are suspected of drug trafficking, money laundering and other crimes.

A report says that the raid on the offices of World Jet was conducted by agents of the federal Drug Enforcement Agency. The action occurred after authorities reportedly became suspicious about activities, including the wire transfer of large sums of money, coming from the hangar-based offices. In addition, federal officers have told Florida media outlets that they suspect that drugs were trafficked by those who owned the business. One of the men served prison time for marijuana trafficking many years ago.

No one was arrested at the time of the police raid. In fact, authorities have yet to make charges against any of those who they say are under suspicion. Criminal charges may be filed as the investigation into the activities of those involved in the aircraft business moves forward.

As is the case with all who stand accused or are suspected of crimes such as drug trafficking, those involved in this investigation are presumed innocent of all crimes unless found otherwise by a court of law. At this time the four individuals involved have not been officially accused of a crime. However, it may do well for them to begin to review the laws as they apply to this type of case, an action that can benefit anyone in Florida who is in danger of being accused of these types of drug crimes.
