Detectives intercept 2 suspected drug dealers in Martin County

STUART, Fla. — The Martin County Sheriff’s Office just finished a month-long investigation into drug dealers who brought illegal drugs into the county.

Martin County narcotics investigators caught two people they thought were trafficking drugs. They were coming from Palm Beach County with almost 15 grams of fentanyl, 57.1 grams of cocaine, a stolen loaded gun, and thousands of dollars.

Shain Gordon Shaw, 38, and Jacob Elijah Groover, 25, were trying to “poison our streets with purple-colored fentanyl,” according to the sheriff’s office.

“Rainbow-colored fentanyl is making its way to our streets, and our Special Investigations Division is doing everything they can to prevent it,” said the sheriff’s office. “Keep your eyes on your loved ones. As for us, we will continue to work the streets looking for our next arrest. #WrongExit

Suspects face trafficking charges and a total bail of approximately one million dollars.

“They had no idea that their trip from Palm Beach County into our area to sell the drugs would cause such a fuss,” said the sheriff’s office.
