A St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office investigation into drug dealing in Port St. Lucie has resulted in the arrest of four city residents and the seizure of 8 pounds of marijuana, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.
- Daymion Omar Anderson, 29 (DOB 11/5/83), of 879 SW Amethist Terrace, Port St. Lucie, charged with marijuana possession with intent to sell (two counts), marijuana possession of more than 20 grams (two counts), and possession of drug equipment;
- Bridgette A. Berlin, 30 (DOB 3/26/83), of 5429 NW Fox Squire Lane, Apt. 208, Port St. Lucie, charged with marijuana possession with intent to sell, marijuana possession of more than 20 grams, and possession of drug equipment;
- Jason Anthony Lovelock, 25 (DOB 10/22/87), of 114 NW Dorchester Street, Port St. Lucie, charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug equipment; and
- Lloyd Ricardo Reid, 57 (DOB 3/13/56), of 879 Amethist Terrace, Port St. Lucie, charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug equipment.
Tuesday at 5 p.m., Sheriff's deputies stopped Anderson in his black Chrysler 200 for failing to completely stop at a traffic light and speeding at Selvitz Road and Edwards Road in unincorporated St. Lucie County. A K-9 trained to detect drugs alerted to the presence of drugs in the car. Deputies found one pound of marijuana in the trunk.
Five hours later, deputies were preparing to serve a search warrant at 5429 NW Fox Squire Lane, Apt. 28 when they saw Daymion Anderson enter the home, then leave with a box. They stopped Anderson near the home and found one pound of marijuana in the box.
Then they served the search warrant, seized six pounds of marijuana in the attic and arrested Bridgette A. Berlin. The marijuana was packaged just like the packaging on the pound of marijuana found in the box carried out of the home by Anderson.
Two hours later, based on investigative information, detectives went to the Paradise Restaurant, 1334 SW Bayshore Boulevard, Port St. Lucie, which was closed at the time. Detectives saw two men, later identified as Jason Anthony Lovelock and Lloyd Ricardo Reid, standing next to a white Chevrolet van. Detectives looked at the ground and saw nothing. As they approached the two, detectives noticed that a small bag, later found to contain marijuana, on the ground underneath the van next to the two men.
Lovelock and Reid were arrested for drug and drug equipment possession.
