Suspects arrested for possession of marijuana in a Tamarac apartment complex tried to flush their pot – down the pot.

Acting on a tip from residents of a Tamarac neighborhood, Broward Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Team (CST) detectives conducted a two-month investigation which culminated in the arrest of five individuals for possession with intent to sell marijuana and the recovery of several weapons.

In December, BSO’s CST in Tamarac received numerous complaints of drug sales and heavy traffic from a unit in the Palm Island Club apartment complex located off of State Road 7 behind the Sunshine Plaza.
