On Friday, June 21, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit, with the assistance of the FCSO tactical team and United States Secret Service, served a search warrant at 11 Raemoor Drive in Palm Coast.

This search warrant was obtained after a thorough investigation into narcotics activity at the property. 

During the search, detectives located prescription pills, methamphetamine, fentanyl, used and unused needles, smoking pipes with cannabis residue, and drug paraphernalia. As detectives were announcing themselves at the start of the search warrant, one suspect attempted to flush narcotics and paraphernalia down the toilet.

Five suspects were located inside the residence and arrested.

Jordan Tyler Cheney, 26, was arrested and charged with possession of fentanyl, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Margaret Lynn Tillman, 37, and John Wesley Jakobson, 40, were each arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of schedule III controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of new or legend drug. 

Glenn James Moratto, 33, and Samantha Marie Tillman, 34, were each arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Several printers and computers were also seized from the property. Law enforcement officers suspect the printers were being used for printing counterfeit U.S. currency. That part of the investigation is ongoing and further charges are pending by the United States Secret Service. 

“This is another great example of people in the community seeing activity that didn’t look right and reporting it to law enforcement and then working with our federal partners,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Now we have five more drug offenders off the streets. If you see something, say something. Call us or send a tip to [email protected]. We will look into it.” 

The owner of the residence was on scene at the time of the search warrant and told deputies that he will be starting the eviction process on anyone currently living at the residence who does not leave freely. 

Further charges are pending as the investigation continues.
