Daytona Beach Police Department POP Unit executed a search warrant yesterday afternoon at a home near Tuscawilla Park, which lead to five Daytona Beach Residents now facing felony drug charges.

According to a release, Daytona Beach Police Department’s Problem-Oriented Policing (POP) Unit entered a residence off Live Oak Avenue Tuesday morning after obtaining a search warrant.

Officers discovered 5.5 grams of fentanyl, 2.1 grams of cocaine, and various kinds of drug paraphernalia in the home, including glass smoking devices, digital scales, and syringes, according to POP Unit Captain Scott Lee.

“The investigation started last month after several residents in the neighborhood reported narcotics activity at this location,” Lee added. “We want to thank those people for coming forward. That kind of information helps us do our job in ridding the streets of drugs and those who deal with them.”

The five people taken into custody were all residents at the Live Oak Avenue home and were present during the raid.

William D. Belden (No Relation), 59, Sheldon R. Campbell, 43, Wayman D. Hunt, 51, Carrie M. Rayburn, 37, John T. Taylor, 35, all face charges involving Trafficking in fentanyl (felony) and possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor).

Those who would like to report similar problems in their neighborhoods can contact DBPD POP Unit Sergeant Kevin Connelly at (386) 671-5162.
