The Broward Sheriff’s Office Violence Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response (VIPER) unit along with detectives from the Crime Suppression Team (CST) in BSO’s District 5 in Central Broward seized four guns and several bags of marijuana and arrested three men following a traffic stop on Friday night. 

At approximately 11:29 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18, BSO detectives conducted a traffic stop in the 2800 block of West Broward Boulevard in unincorporated Central Broward. Within the vehicle, detectives observed and located drugs and multiple firearms. Detectives seized four firearms, including a Zastava 7.62 pistol, a Beretta 92SF, a Taurus PT840C .40 cal. and a Walther P22 .22 cal. pistol. Detectives were working on a maintenance operation to curtail car shows and large gatherings in District 5, an area with a high volume of calls for service related to gunfire.

Daequan Griffin, Johnny Belony and Paul Olivier were arrested. Griffin faces two counts of carrying a concealed firearm, Belony faces one count of carrying a concealed firearm and Olivier is charged with possession of cannabis over 20 grams. Griffin was arrested earlier this month for carrying a concealed firearm and was out of jail on bond at the time of Friday’s arrest.
