Nov. 3, 2010 — Pompano Beach

The Selective Enforcement Team was conducting an undercover buy-and-bust operation. A detective met with Justin Wade Tellis in a Taco Bell parking lot to buy drugs.

Tellis, 26, completed the sale and drove out of the parking lot, where he was stopped by other officers.
