GREEN COVE SPRINGS – A man already on bond for a previous drug bust was arrested in a raid on Friday, Nov. 3, near AMIkids of Clay County and Green Cove Springs Junior High.

The Green Cove Springs Police Department, Clay County Sheriff’s Office and Drug Enforcement Agency served a search warrant and arrested Marcus Lamont Frazier, 32, of Green Cove Springs, for distributing crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of the schools.

According to GCSPD, a narcotics investigation between the three agencies led to obtaining a warrant and issuing a temporary lockdown of the junior high.

“Due to the proximity of the Green Cove Springs Junior High School, it was a precautionary measure to initiate lockdown procedures until the scene was determined to be safe. This kind of response is common with law enforcement operations take place near schools to ensure the safety of students and staff,” was included in a GCSPD release.

“Unfortunately, the suspect arrested this morning is someone I have dealt with for the same type of activity when I was a young police officer,” Green Cove Springs Police Chief E.J. Guzman said. “I hope this latest arrest is the one that convinces this man to turn his life around. To our community, rest assured that we will not rest until anyone selling poison in the City is taken off the streets.”

According to court records, Frazier also was arrested on May 28 for selling crack cocaine and marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of resisting law enforcement with violence.

He was released after posting a $50,006 bond. His new bond is $150,003, and his next pretrial court date is Nov. 21.
