One major drug arrest in Wakulla County has led to a chain reaction of 16 more arrests. The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office says there are still 6 other outstanding arrest warrants All of the warrants are a result of tips from confidential informants and a routine traffic stop nearly two months ago.

Deputies say the driver stopped, Jason Metcalfe, was a major drug dealer in Wakulla. They say his arrest has since led them to a growing number of leads.

Major Maurice Langston said, "We started developing confidential informants in the drug cases as we served search warrants. They started giving us information. The information led to 22 arrest warrants you see here."

Some of the suspects still at large who have warrants for their arrest are shown in the video attached to this story. If anyone knows anything about these individuals you can call WCSO at 926-0800. Deputies say there is the possibility of a reward.

    AS I SAID BEFORE THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE POLITACAL RACE FOR SHERIFF CAUSE THE WORD IS OUT THAT THE SAME ROUNDUP IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IN AN AJOINING COUNTY THIS WEEKEND....WHAT THEY DON'T SEE IS THAT THIS SUCH THING HURTS THEM MORE THAN HELPS THEM. WHAT GETS ME IS THAT ALL THE LAW ENFORCEMENT USED TO BE YOUNG AT ONE TIME TO AND I WILL BET MY LAST BREATH THAT THEY TOO WAS A LITTLE MISCHIF AND DONE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE GOTTEN THEM INTO TROUBLE BUT YET THEY HARASS THE YOUNG FOLKS FOR THE SAME THING TODAY. THE ONLY REASON MOST TAKE THE JOB OF A COP IS SO THEY CAN DO ILLIGAL THINGS AND COVER IT UP.THE MOST OF THEM HAVE ALCAHOL AND ANGER PROBLEMS THEY DRINK BECAUSE THEY ARE ANGRY AND THEY ARE ANGRY BECAUSE NOONE LIKES A COP SO THEREFOR THEY HAVE NO FRIENDS OUTSIDE THE FORCE ...THATS WHY ITS CALLED A BROTHERHOOD.

    OooLenorI AGREE!!As I was the one that Gave him the money that the WCFinest is saying "Drug Money"ITS NOT!I agree the car deal is TOTALLY WRONG!I want the Car out &MY MONEY back!they say the proof is in the pudding yet NONE of us has seen the proof or his lawyer yet!My son has done nothing wrong for a small amount of weed 100k bail seems excessive as well as the non refundable bond of 50k.Though some of them that where caught are already lowered bail & out.Go figure there they keep my son's high bail & I have no way of getting him out I don't work atm.(I had to borrow the money from my"companion")was told that a noterized statement would get it back NOPE!So I am only able to talk with my son on the phone. yes even that costs money as well but best I can do atm.seems I don't have the connections that many of them do to get my son out.sorry son I cant ask favors like the rest of them have ;-/At my wits end now.If ever a god then hopefully he will help&soon plz.

    I have been reading & listening to everyone.So guess now is my time to speak up.I know for a fact one of them that was brought in by WCFinest(sarcasm there)Does not know any of them or Jason for that matter!So all this Jason stuff is just that STUFF!!WCFinest shouldn't label ANY of them with whatever or whomever they think might be a "group"I know for a fact mines NOT in that or any "group".They THINK he is but he is not!I believe WCFinest needs to look alittle closer&Leave them that are INNOCENT alone.I will defend mine till the end!(In on small amount weed what a joke).The media really wants a good story why not try to get ahold of some of the parents/family instead of listening to WCFinest!Thank God I don't vote in WC.None of them would get my vote!Always remeber and never forget not even the Cops are always right!Oh&1 got away cause "Someone"knows Harvey so well!OooSpecial treatment there I believe.I agree with Jen higher ups always get a slapped hand when they smoke.I'llHushNow;-)

    Is this fair? A man gets pulled over, the police says there's a warrant out for his arrest, have 7 other units come out, including K-9, and search his vehicle. They find nothing and take him to jail anyways. He's charged with two 3rd degree felonies and his bail is 100k. They say that they have a voice recording of him selling 2.1 grams of marijuana(even if he ever sold that, it's still 17.9 grams under the felony charge). He's been in there since the 5th of July. His court date is the 16th of August. He has no money, they took the $1,000 away from him that his mom gave him to help out with rent and said it was drug money. Took his car, he can get it back for $500. HE DOESN'T EVEN SMOKE WEED! Nor does he do any other drug. He was about to go to college with me. We were about to move into a nice little house together. Many things that he planned on doing have been ruined because of all this!

    To Susan- I think that we all understand what ONE OF JASON'S FRIENDS meant by their comment. Thank you for your dilligent commitment, "Webster", to the english language, thanks to your assistance we are all better equipped to read the comments! Since the media decided to censor my original comments, I will change them for you. It's too bad that our local media is so misinformed. Once again, we've been led astray by the "drive-bys". Jason did not narc any of those "thugs", this was an 8 month long investigation. Perhaps as we argue these points, the Polar Icecaps will melt from the "global warming scam" created by the "drive-bys". Jason was not the only person in that vehicle and he is still in jail.

    Jen,where did it say Jason had cocaine? Do you know him?

    Heather-why would you criticize WCTV for posting the "wrong information" when what they publicize is information from the sherriffs? They are not there to sort out what Jason did and didnt do. Duh. And besides, if you were in his shoes would you narc on anyone? I bet you would.
