A 23 year old Miami man who offered Marijuana for sale on Craigslist is in jail after he sold an ounce of the drug to Sheriff’s detectives.
Detectives saw the advertisement on Craigslist which offered “medicinal high grade top shelf” marijuana, along with a picture of a green leafy substance that appeared to be cannabis. They communicated with the email address provided in the ad, asking if the seller could come to Monroe County to make a sale.
The seller, later identified as Rhamses Silva of Miami, responded that he did have “fire” for sale, a common street name for high quality marijuana. He eventually agreed to sell an ounce of marijuana for $320.
On Tuesday just after noon, detectives met with Silva in the parking lot of a convenience store at the 106.5 mile marker of the highway. Silva handed over a bag containing two packages of marijuana. The detectives handed over cash.
Silva was arrested. More marijuana was found in his car, along with one Adderall pill and various items of drug paraphernalia.
Silva was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, use of a cell phone to facilitate a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked into jail.
