Operation Hammerhead Ends With Arrests

Sarasota, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Police have ended a six month long investigation by narcotics detectives with several arrests.

Officers say the target of Operation Hammerhead was 66 year-old Anthony Snead.  Detectives say they watched Snead receive deliveries of five pounds of high grade pot each week. Cops say the deliveries were made to Snead's home on Audobon place.

Investigators say Snead paid $5,000. per pound and then repackaged the weed to sell in smaller quantities for a higher profit.

Also arrested in the operation was 38 year-old Andy Charlton.  Charlton is charged with possession of pot with intent to sell and transportation of drug paraphernalia.
