Jacksonville Beach SWAT Helps in Drug Trafficking Arrest

Jacksonville Beach Police Department’s General Investigations Unit (GIU) obtained an arrest warrant for trafficking in illegal drugs that began as a death investigation. Due to several risk factors our SWAT team was utilized to arrest the suspect. This morning, a vehicle takedown was initiated on the Green’s Way, which resulted in a successful apprehension.

Below is an excerpt from Action News Jax. The arrest warrant for Sapp began as a death investigation. On Apr. 6, 2023 officers were called to Baptist Medical Center Beaches after Sapp drove to the emergency room with a dead woman, later identified as Charity Hundley. She was found in the back storage area of his SUV at the hospital.

A police report stated that the victim was nude and her body was cold to the touch and stiff, indicating rigor mortis.

In a subsequent interview, Sapp told police that he had brought Hundley on a boat at the North Florida Yacht Club and Marina the day before. He said he gave her half a pill and the two returned to the marina at some point. Video surveillance obtained by police showed Hundley hanging onto Sapp’s arm in order to walk when they got off the boat.
