Four charged in Grassy Key drug bust involving heroin

August 6, 2014 

A Grassy Key man who was shot in the leg during a home-invasion robbery in May was arrested, along with three other men, on drug charges Monday.

Robert Moir, 40, was taken into custody after Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies served a search warrant at the Overseas Highway residence near mile marker 58 around 1 p.m. 

According to the Sheriff's Office, four detectives and a sergeant with the Special Investigations Unit found heroin, believed to be packaged for sale. Multiple pills, digital scales, marijuana and liquid heroin inside of a syringe also were seized.

Other suspects arrested include Randy Jones, 33; Joshua Deakins, 26; and Serguei Koudriavtsev, 53. All list a Grassy Key address.

Jones was detained after a detective caught him walking up to Moir's back door. Deputies inspected his room at a nearby resort, where Jones said his 7-year-old niece was staying. Inside the room, deputies said they found marijuana, Oxycodone and a powdery substance that tested positive for heroin, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

Deputies first encountered Moir and Koudriavtsev in May after Moir said three assailants tried to break into his home. Moir said he was shot in the leg after struggling with one of the robbers. Moir was treated at the scene by paramedics but refused transport to a hospital.

The four suspects were booked into the Monroe County jail. The suspected contraband is being tested by authorities.
