On Tuesday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office Gang Investigations Task Force arrested an Oakland Park man suspected of distributing large quantities of firearms and narcotics to known gang members in Broward County.
Detectives arrested Brett Valley on several criminal charges, including armed trafficking of oxycodone and the sale, manufacture, or delivery of cannabis.
The investigation began earlier this year, after investigators received information regarding crimes Valley is suspected of committing.
Detectives methodically built a criminal case against Valley using undercover techniques, which resulted in his arrest on Wednesday and serving multiple search warrants.
As a result of the search warrants, detectives recovered three dozen firearms and drugs including oxycodone, cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis, and other narcotics. BSO’s Organized Crime Unit participated in the investigation, which is ongoing.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Homeland Security Investigations also participated in the investigation.
