On two separate occasions Roland Johnson delivered methamphetamine to a confidential source working with law enforcement. The methamphetamine, which was determined to be the “ice” variety, weighed approximately three ounces. Johnson was subsequently charged federally for the distribution of over 50 grams of methamphetamine.

Johnson, forty-four years of age, was arrested at the Stateline Discount Store located in Hilliard, Florida. Law enforcement obtained information that Johnson would be at the store to meet with someone and surveillance was conducted which resulted in Johnson’s arrest without incident.

Johnson is currently being detained in federal custody.
