STOCK ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says an ongoing criminal operation has been dismantled with the arrests of three Stock Island men accused of drug trafficking and possession of 680 undersized lobster tails.

The arrests were made Thursday after deputies raided a “compound” of side-by-side trailers of 63-year-old Juan Soca Sr., 42-year-old Juan Soca Jr. and 38-year-old Jose Soca. Several agencies participated in the raid.

Spokeswoman Becky Herrin says the sheriff’s office obtained a search warrant after Soca Jr. sold 1.5 ounces of cocaine to an undercover officer on Tuesday. She says they seized property, cash, seafood and large quantities of drugs, including 17.8 pounds of cocaine.

The men remained in the Monroe County Jail on Friday. They face multiple charges. No attorneys were listed on their jail records.
