Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd busts a rhyme

Our favorite Florida Sheriff, Grady Judd, just out-did himself by donning a huge gold necklace while rapping at a press conference to announce a major undercover drug bust dubbed “Operation Bell Gang Blues.”

The 16-month undercover investigation conducted by the High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area task force in the Lake Wales area, netted 32 people on charges of trafficking, sale, and possession of illegal drugs.

In all, 29 suspects were arrested and three others remain out on warrant.

The suspects face a total of 301 felonies and 134 misdemeanors, the sheriff’s office says. Their combined criminal histories include 314 total felonies and 331 total misdemeanors.
