Five Florida Residents Accused Of Attempting To Sell Meth In Hancock County

6/20/18 – 5:12 A.M.

Five Florida residents allegedly tried to sell nearly $100,000 worth of meth in Hancock County. Prosecutor Phil Riegle says authorities arrested 28-year-old Salomon Lopez, 19-year-old Isidoro Martinez, 23-year-old Johnny Nonorato, 29-year-old Stacy McDonald, and 36-year-old Manuel Rivera Sanchez early this month. Riegle says the DEA led the operation that led to the group’s arrest.

All five people face aggravated possession of drugs charges. Sanchez also faces a count of aggravated trafficking in drugs. That’s a major drug offender specification, meaning he could face up to 11 years in prison. Martinez and Lopez also face charges that put them into the major drug offender specification.
