$250,000 North Florida Ecstasy Ring Busted
April 13, 2005

BUNNELL, Fla. -- Two from Flagler County and two Volusia County residents were arrested Tuesday night, accused of running a major drug manufacturing operation out of a Palm Coast home.

The arrests came after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Tri-County Narcotics Task Force searched a home on Sea Flower Path Tuesday evening, finding a laboratory for the manufacture of the street drug Ecstasy in the back bedroom.

Agents seized a total of 850 capsules from the house.

The FDLE, with cooperation of the sheriff's office in Flagler and Volusia counties, made the four arrests:

Michael Joel Lassiter, 50, of Daytona Beach -- charged with manufacturing MDMA.
James Hennessy Jacobs, 40, of Palm Coast -- charged with manufacturing of MDMA and maintaining a drug dwelling.
Matthew Craig Morgan, 31, of Palm Coast -- charged with principle to manufacturing of MDMA.
Melisa Gwen Leonard, 35, of South Daytona -- charged with manufacturing of MDMA.

Authorities believe the lab produced about 2,000 capsules per month, with each of the capsules carrying a street value between $20 and $25. Agents said the pills were sold in north and central Florida areas, generating over $250,000 over the six months they believe the lab operated.

Authorities said more arrests are pending.
