‘Operation Coin Toss’: 55 arrests, 122 felonies in Citrus County drug crackdown

Citrus County

CITRUS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — A drug investigation in Citrus County netted the arrests of 55 individuals on a combined 122 felony charges.

“Operation Coin Toss” began in June 2019. In the latest and last swarm of arrests, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office charged 55 individuals with 122 felony charges and 43 misdemeanors.

The first quarter of the drug operation targeted those responsible for drug trafficking and those who sell illegal narcotics. The latest investigation targeted on intelligence collected through drug overdose investigations.

The undercover surveillance and drug purchases resulted in the seizure of 40 grams of fentanyl, 143 grams of meth, 87 grams of heroin, and 30 grams of cocaine.

“The focus of Operation Coin Toss is to dismantle the drug supply chains plaguing the vulnerable population of Citrus County,” said Sheriff Mike Prendergast. “We continue to focus our attention on the dealers who are making a profit by exploiting addicts and their loved ones.”
