BSO Stops The Madness In ‘Operation March Mayhem’

More than 300 arrested in two-day crackdown

BROWARD (CBSMiami) – More than 300 drug dealers, prostitutes and people with child pornography have been arrested in a 2 day sting in Broward County.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office partnered with several law enforcement agencies in a large-scale, two-day crackdown on street-level crime. BSO officials said they confiscated more than a thousand grams of cocaine and shut down a marijuana grow house in West Park during their “Operation March Mayhem.”

158 plants and more than 150 pounds of marijuana were seized in the West Park warehouse.

In addition, detectives found hundreds of Oxycodone pills, seven guns and more than $50,000.

Law enforcement officers from the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Metro Broward Drug Task Force, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms, U.S Postal Inspectors, U.S. Marshals, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, State Probation and Parole and Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale, Lauderhill, Sunrise and Coral Springs Police Departments all partnered together for the sting, involving more than 200 police officers.

    Way to go, glad you were able to crack down, but unfortunately the demand is still there and others will take their places. How about cracking down on the users, stiffer fines and even stiffer prison terms, ruin a few good peoples lives with criminal records and the word would get around that drugs are a bad thing, not only for your health, but also your wallet and lively hood. We are tough on the dealers, but if you took demand away, they would have no one to sell too. Crack down hard, stiffer fines, public humiliation, prison terms and see the demand drop. It’s not the average joe using all those drugs, it’s the man and woman who want to party after a hard week at work. The middle the class who has the money. Time to hurt the user and watch demand drop.

      The war on drugs is a waste of taxpayer dollars and law enforcement’s time that could be better used to take down REAL criminals.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.
    A corrupt DEA poisoned my dog to death because I called the San Francisco Attorney General’s office to complain that the FBI and DEA where fabricating evidence and stealing from me.

    Also since that time, they have been using gang members to harass me and tampering with my car with they intention of causing an automobile crash.
