DESOTO COUNTY, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies arrested a DeSoto County man earlier today, after they completed an undercover drug purchase from him.
Detectives arrested Vincent James Palisano, 54, on multiple charges including Sale and Delivery of a Controlled Substance within 1,000 ft. of a Convenience Store, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
According to reports, undercover operatives arranged for two separate purchases of hydrocodone pills from Palisano earlier this year in April. In each of those cases, they paid him $100 for five pills that were confirmed as being hydrocodone.
Just after 11:00 a.m. today, detectives arranged to meet with Palisano again at the Race Trac, located on Sandhill Blvd. In today’s transaction, undercover operatives purchased five oxycodone pills from Palisano. After the transaction was completed, other members of the Narcotics Unit took Palisano into custody.
