FORT WALTON BEACH — A man who makes $150 a week selling cocaine was one of two people arrested at a Fort Walton Beach Residence.
Fredrick Johnson, 57, was arrested at his mobile home after he sold cocaine to a confidential source for the Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force, according to the incident report.
Deputies secured a warrant to search Johnson’s home after the buy, and when they arrived officials found crack cocaine, Xanax, marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia inside.
During questioning, Johnson said he had marijuana seeds and was trying to grow them and that he has been a crack cocaine user for more than two decades. He also confirmed that he sells drugs from his home and makes about $150 per week selling crack cocaine.
He declined to provide police with the names of anyone else involved, but detectives located others easily enough.
At the same time they arrested Johnson, they also arrested Carolyn Grant, 47, who also lived in Johnson’s home. Grant is accused facilitating drug transactions for Johnson, taking people’s money and having Johnson or another dealer in the area provide the drugs.
Grant denied using any of the drugs, but said she was aware drug paraphernalia existed in the home.
Grant was arrested for possession of property for trafficking or manufacturing a controlled substance and sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a place of worship.
Johnson was arrested for sale of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a place of worship, leasing for the purpose of trafficking a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia and six counts of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.
