Date: April 21, 2011

Time: 12:30 PM

Agents of the Levy County Sheriff's Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration conducted a criminal investigation at 12151 SE 80th Street, Morriston. Upon arrival, they made contact with an unknown female and smelled the odor of marijuana emitting from the residence. Agents requested to enter the residence which is also known a "knock and talk", but the female claimed she could not speak English. Agents utilized an interpreter and the female still claimed that she did not understand.

Agents secured the female and the residence and obtained a drug search warrant. After executing the search warrant, Agents recovered cocaine, marijuana, handguns, a Mini-14 high powered rifle, shotguns and over 5000 rounds of ammunition. Also, inside the house there were numerous credit cards that Agents believe to be fictitious names.

Agents seized a Ford Mustang and over 100,000 dollars in cash. The female was booked in the Levy County Jail as Jane Doe and she is believed to be an illegal alien. Her identity is unknown and she was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and possession of a fictitious driver's license. Agents expect more arrests and the investigation continues in this organized crime and money laundering.

On April 21, 2011 Agent Jay Bolton obtained an arrest warrant for Alberto Mora. The warrant is for six counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, two counts of possession of a electric weapon by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine, possession of a driver's forged or stolen fictitious driver's license with a $ 975,000 bond. Alberto Mora is also known as Carlos Diaz and his true identity is being investigated. Mora is from Cuba and his location is unknown at this time. Agents expect more arrest in this investigation.
