Inside look: St. Johns County Sheriff's Office
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office arrests hundreds of suspects each year and with some of the apprehensions come illegal drugs.
The SJCSO takes the drugs it confiscates to an off-site location where they are destroyed in an incinerator.
Deputies recently destroyed hundreds of pounds of illegal drugs.
By incinerating the drugs, this insures that the drugs never return to the streets of North Florida.
Detectives say the street value of a recent cocaine burn is around $7.5 million.
