From the Palm Beach Post-
Someone can actually get 16 years probation?
RIVIERA BEACH — Once again, convicted drug trafficker Deon Roundtree got busted on charges of carrying cocaine and other illegal drugs.
The city's police narcotics unit and a SWAT team descended on an apartment Roundtree was living in early Saturday morning and found evidence that suggests he had not shed his old ways.
The count, according to police: 5 kilos of cocaine, 4 pounds of marijuana, 503 grams of Oxycodone, 226 grams of crack cocaine, 107 grams of Methadone and nearly $71,000 in cash, along with drug-making and storing material.
Roundtree, 41, will be slapped with federal narcotics charges. He is currently in the middle of a 16-year probation sentence for cocaine trafficking in Georgia.
Roundtree's string of past arrests and convictions on drug charges in Florida alone goes back more than 20 years, law enforcement records indicate, and began with the Riviera Beach police department.So Roundtree is a chronic criminal. He gets 16 years probation. Does anyone else feel that's a strange sentence?
Roundtree has lived in Riviera Beach most of his life, Brown said, and he's been arrested by police departments in Tequesta, Delray Beach, West Palm Beach, Lake Park and by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.The police sound awfully familar with this guy. Maybe Roundtree wants to get arrested in Briny Breezes while there still is a chance to do so.
Twenty prior arrests, sixteen years probation, selliing drugs from his apartment for some time. Doesn't this make you feel confident about South Florida law enforcement? NOT!
Police had been investigating Roundtree for some time and said he was manufacturing and selling drugs from the apartment. They described his activity as part of a "major drug operation," with other arrests to come.
