In December 2017, NCSO, working with the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and other law enforcement agencies, obtained information about individuals transporting kilos of cocaine from South Florida to New York. After further investigation a traffic stop was made in Nassau County on an individual who was bringing back a large sum of cash from the sale of these illegal drugs. The cash (over $300,000) was seized by DEA. On December 10, 2019, DEA ASAC Mike Dubet, Group Supervisor Mike Mayer and Asset Forfeiture Coordinator Kathryn Wallace presented Sheriff Bill Leeper a check to NCSO for their assistance in the case in the amount of $18,550.20. These funds can be used to purchase needed equipment utilized by the sheriff’s office.
