 Polk County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Arrest Career Criminal 


“Every day, Sheriff’s Office deputies risk their lives to keep our Polk County residents safe,” said Sheriff Grady Judd.  “The dangers are very real, and this case is a perfect example of how quickly one call can become a potentially life-threatening situation - and as we’ve seen over and over, drugs were involved.”

Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a Lakeland area residence yesterday, Tuesday, February 12, 2013, after receiving information about a possible Domestic Battery which occurred the night before at second Lakeland location.

Upon their arrival, deputies learned 34-year-old Jason Lloyd, DOB 06/10/1978, and his girlfriend, 29-year-old Heather Foreman, had an argument at a residence the couple shared.  During the dispute, Lloyd burned Foreman with a cigarette, and then dragged Foreman by her wrist into a bedroom.    

During the Domestic Violence investigation, deputies learned Lloyd had a pipe bomb, ammunition and drugs in the couple’s shared residence.  Deputies responded to the shared residence where they located Lloyd.  He was placed under arrest for the Domestic Battery charge.  As he was being arrested, deputies located a multi-colored cylinder hanging from Lloyd’s belt loop containing cannabis.  Deputies saw a large amount of copper wire lying on the living room floor along with other drug paraphernalia in plain view.

Deputies contacted the State Fire Marshal’s office which located the pope bomb and detonated the device.  The residence was searched and numerous items of additional drug paraphernalia were located which tested positive for methamphetamine and cannabis.  Deputies determined Lloyd had been maintaining the residence for drug use. 

Additionally, deputies located multiple pieces of ammunition in the kitchen of the residence; outside, a power pole which had been altered to steel electricity.  Lakeland Electric representatives responded and secured the power pole and power box. 

Lloyd was charged with:

Domestic Violence

2 Counts Possession of Cannabis

2 Counts Possession of Paraphernalia

Make/Posses Destructive Device

17 Counts Possession of Weapon/Ammunition by Convicted Felon

Possession Methamphetamine

Keep Shop/Vehicle For Drug Use

“The debate of drug offenders not being violent is never more clear than in this case.  A few people may surmise that “petty druggies” are themselves their only victims; however, this is just not so.  According to a Bureau of Justice Statistics report, 77 percent of jail inmates indicated they were involved in either illegal drugs or alcohol at the time of the offense for which they were incarcerated.  These offenders commit crimes against you to support their drug habit—period.  They leave many victims in their wake—theirs is NOT a victimless crime.  These “non-violent” thieves, scam artists, drug dealers, serial property crime offenders, and scofflaws cost Florida citizens millions of dollars per year in losses.  Over and over again, we see how important it is for those who victimize our communities to be held accountable for their actions.”  - Sheriff Judd

Lloyd, who is currently held on no bond, has a lengthy criminal arrest history which includes 20 arrests in Polk County.  He was sentenced to 1-year and 1-day in state prison in 2008, where he served approximately eight months.
