Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Takes Down Drug Dealing Suspect

Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – To truly understand the importance of the four basic rules listed below, let’s look to what happened last night to Katrina Workman, who not only forget basic rule number one, but apparently didn’t follow any of the basic rules and as such, found herself at “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge” with the other drug dealers.
In This Chapter:
Rule Number One: Don’t Be A Drug Dealer
Rule Number Two: No Matter What, Don’t Be A Drug Dealer In Brevard County
Rule Number Three: If You Are Gonna Deal Drugs Don’t Fall Asleep Behind The Wheel
Rule Number Four: Even If You Hide Drugs In Your Butt The Cops Will Still Find Them
Not only did Workman totally ignore rules one and two, but then she decided to fall asleep behind the wheel of her car while parked in the parking lot of the Raceway in Mims.
As is often the case when you violate this rule, the Deputies show up and then things most often take a turn for the worst for the drug dealer. In this classic example of ignoring the rules, Deputies Jose Acosta and Benjamin Strait arrive on scene and observe Workman trying to hide a baggy that contained multiple types of illegal drugs.
Workman was actually trying to conceal approximately 2 grams of Methamphetamine, approximately 2.6 grams of Fentanyl, approximately 1.8 grams of Buprenorphine, and approximately 6.4 grams of Amphetamine/Dextroamphetamine.
As a result of not following the basic rules, especially numbers one and two, which clearly state don’t sell drugs and especially not in Brevard County, Workman was arrested and taken into custody.
Now here is where Workman completely ignored rule number four as she was warned to disclose to the Deputies if she had any other contraband hidden on her person to which she of course responded, “no”.
Even after being warned that if she did, additional charges would be forthcoming, Workman still blatantly ignored rule number four and carried another baggie of fentanyl into our jail which she had hidden in her buttocks.
Well, as we clearly point out in Drug Dealing For Dummies, “even if you hide drugs in your butt the cops will still find it” and that is exactly what happened as our Corrections Deputies seized the additional baggie of fentanyl, while Workman was changing into her nice new prison attire.
Workman was subsequently booked into our jail on a total bond of $13,000 for Possession of Fentanyl, Possession of Methamphetamine, Two Counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Introduction of Contraband Into a Correctional Facility.
So students, what have we learned from this classic example of what happens if you don’t follow the basic rules covered in chapter one of Drug Dealing For Dummies?
Well it’s simple…if you deal drugs in Brevard County, you are going to jail, if you fall asleep behind the wheel of your car in the parking lot you help the cops put you in jail, and lastly, if you hide drugs in your butt the cops will still find them and then you get another felony charge for bringing contraband into our jail.
In Chapter Two of “Drug Dealing For Dummies” we will discuss how drug dealers are peddling poison for their own greed and how important it is to pick the right cellmate.
