The ORANGE COUNTY (FL) SHERIFF'S OFFICE and the FCC have shut down a pirate radio station in ORLANDO that was allegedly being used to transmit drug deal and gang information.
"STREET HEAT" operated from an antenna behind a residence in SOUTH ORLANDO and was allegedly broadcasting live ads with information on where to buy drugs and solicit prostitution as well as other gang-related material. Two men, BALTHAZARD SENAT and CHRISTOPHER ROBERT ROTH, were arrested FRIDAY night and charged with unauthorized radio transmission and cannabis possession.
