ORLANDO, Fla. - Authorities said five people, including Orlando Commissioner Regina Hill's son, were arrested Friday during a raid at a Pine Hills home that's owned by Regina Hill.

Members of the Sheriff's Office SWAT and Tactical Teams served warrants at the Baywood Avenue home on Friday.

Sheriff's Office PIO Jeff Williamson said the home has been under surveillance for several months and that they "know for a fact" that illegal drug activity was going on inside.

"We received some tips that there was illegal activity going on in and around the residence," Williamson said.

Approximately 10 people were detained during the raid and five were arrested on a number of gun and drug charges.

Those arrested were Rakeem Hill, 27, Richardson Bellefeur, 27, Teshawn Clarke, 19, Omari Nembhard, 26, and Shaneika Jackson, 20, according to deputies.

Rakeem Hill was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of cannabis less than 20 grams, and three firearms and ammunition charges. He listed Regina Hill as his mother on court documents related to a previous criminal case.

Bellefeur was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell and with obstructing a search warrant.

Clarke's charges included possession of cannabis with intent to sell and possession of cannabis more than 20 grams.

Nembhard was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of cannabis less than 20 grams.

Jackson was charged with possession of methamphetamine and obstructing a search warrant.

The home is owned by the commissioner, who was recently fined more than $22,000 for a broken down car that's parked outside the house, but she said she doesn't live there.

Code enforcement had ordered the car be removed and fined the commissioner $250 for each day that it stayed put.

Channel 9 also found out that the home was headed for foreclosure, but the sale was suspended.

Attempts to contact Regina Hill were unsuccessful.
