Detectives launched Operation Night Train in October 2017 which led to the agency’s largest seizure of methamphetamine to date. As part of the investigation detectives received information that 27-year-old Dylan Woodward was selling drugs out of a hotel room in North Port. A search warrant of the room yielded more than 170 grams of meth, oxycodone, various drug paraphernalia, and $740 in cash. Woodward was arrested and charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine.
The investigation and subsequent successful prosecution were conducted in partnership with the State Attorney’s Office. Several of Woodward’s co-defendants are still awaiting trial.
