The Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) is putting the final touches on an undercover operation where 41 people have been arrested or are facing charges for dealing drugs.

Nine defendants were taken into custody during today’s (October 2, 2019) round-up, done by the Narcotics Unit with the assistance of the Special Weapons & Tactics (SWAT) Unit and Crime Suppression Team (CST).

Another 18 defendants targeted during “Operation Clean Streets” today remain at large. The other 14 defendants involved were in custody prior to the round-up.

Speaking to reporters afterward, DBPD Chief Craig Capri (pictured right) said this operation began in May with the goal of placing open-air drug market dealers – many of whom are repeat offenders – behind bars.

“The most visible forms of drug activity that you see are the street-level stuff and that’s what most of the violence is associated with,” Capri added.

Operation Clean Streets was based in part on numerous complaints from citizens about drug dealers working certain sections of the city.

14 search warrants were executed by investigators during Operation Clean Streets, including two today which resulted in the arrests of 29-year-old James W. Reed and 21-year-old Malcolm McMillon.

Reed is facing four charges, including trafficking in heroin. Two other defendants – 37-year-old Richard L. Boston and 44-year-old Vicki A. Dowgiallo – are also facing trafficking charges (MDMA and methamphetamine, respectively).

McMillon is charged with cocaine possession, as are 16 other defendants involved in Operation Clean Streets. Many of them are facing upgraded penalties for selling cocaine within 1,000 feet of a public park or a place of worship.

Eight firearms were recovered by DBPD during this operation, five of which were reported stolen in Volusia or Flagler counties. Officers also recovered $3,479 in United States currency and the following drugs:

  • Cannabis: 305 grams
  • Cocaine: 21 grams
  • Heroin: 33 grams
  • Methamphetamine: 21 grams
  • MDMA: 29.7 grams

The names of the defendants who were targeted during today’s roundup and their charges can be found in the photo below.

The remaining names involved and arrest reports for all the defendants are not available at this time.
