MIAMI ( – Former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Igor Olshansky was one of 280 people arrested as part of a Broward Sheriff’s department crackdown called, “Operation Cold Turkey.”

Olshansky, who was released by the Miami Dolphins earlier this week, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana as part of the sweep.

According to the BSO report, Olshansky was found in his home rolling a marijuana cigarette.

He also had a “clear baggie with approximately 19 grams of marijuana,” according to the police report.

The crackdown was targeting street-level drug dealers, prostitutes, and convicted felons with firearms.

The sweep had officers from the BSO, DEA, Homeland Security, FBI, FHP, and ATF.

In addition to the 280 arrests, officers dismantled a grow house, recovered 15 weapons, and seized 2,000 Oxycodone pills, $35,000 in cash, an AK-47, and a sawed-off shotgun.
