$500K cocaine, 10 arrests from Operation Deja Vu

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford announced a long term drug investigation called Operation Deja-Vu Tuesday morning.

The investigation began in the beginning of 2013, according to Rutherford.

Ten suspects have been arrested in connection with operation Deja-Vu. Additionally four guns, $386,291 and multiple vehicles were seized.

A search warrant was also issued for a warehouse that was discovered in the investigation where eight kilos of cocaine, $104,000 cash and two handguns were found. The street value of cocaine seized is approximately $500,000 if sold by the kilo.

The investigation found drugs were coming to Jacksonville from Miami and Texas.

"The reason it is important to take down and prosecute aggressively is they are carrying guns…these are murders waiting to happen," Rutherford said. "Now the hard work begins, the prosecution. Glad to have Angela Corey as the State Attorney involved with this case."

Arrested so far in operation Deja-Vu include 36-year-old Cedric Leonard Sapp, Alexander Michael Loscalzo, 23, Samantha Elisa Colon, 28 and 30-year-old Kenneth Donald Caldwell. Jerrold A. Mills, 39 and 29-year-old Jackie Lee Wyman are facing deferred arrests.

Jamael Malan Tyson was arrested Thursday by U.S. Marshalls in McCray, Georgia. He was wanted for conspiracy to traffic cocaine with a $1,000,003 bond. In addition, he was wanted in connection with the drug investigation Operation Deja Vu.
