    COCOA, Fla. - Police converged on Lemon Street in Cocoa recently and reportedly broke up a drug ring dealing in marijuana, crack cocaine, heroin and prescription pills.

    Residents in the area said they had noticed people acting strangely at the home, with people coming and going at all times of the day and the residents holding parties late into the night, even in the middle of the week.

    After a month-long investigation into the home, police served a search warrant Friday and reportedly found more than 400 grams of marijuana inside, along with other drugs in amounts consistent with trafficking, investigators said.

    Neighbor Sammie Robbins said the home police raided had not seemed quite right for some time.

    “I just felt something was going on that wasn’t supposed to, you know?” she said. “Because I had never seen that stuff up there before.”

    Johnnise Kimbrough, 37, was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of cocaine, trafficking in heroin, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.

    Joseph Mickey, 32, was also arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and violation of probation.
