BREAKING: Tip Leads to Detention Deputy’s Arrest on Drug Charges

BROOKSVILLE – According to officials, Vice and Narcotics Detectives with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that a Detention Deputy at the County Jail was involved in illegal drug activity.

During the investigation, a controlled narcotics transaction was arranged with a confidential informant. The deputy’s girlfriend, 23-year-old Jean Marie Hoek, solicited the informant to sell 10 Oxycodone (30 mg.) to her.

At the arranged time and place, Hoek and her boyfriend, identified as 41-year-old Mitchell Sim (Detention Deputy) arrived in a Nissan Frontier pickup truck, driven by Sim. The informant made contact with Hoek and sold her the Oxycodone for $250. The informant then turned her/his attention to Sim and asked if he needed any pills. Sim said he did not have any money because he just bought his new truck.

Detectives converged on the truck – placing Hoek and Sim into custody.

During an interview, Sim admitted to detectives that it was his money used to purchase the pills. Hoek confirmed that information during her interview.

Sim is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and is eligible for a $2,000 bond. It is unknown if Sim remains behind bars, due to law enforcement policy preventing public access to information on employees.

Hoek is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Paraphernalia. She remains behind bars held on a $3,000 bond. Hoek has a long history of arrests dating back to 2010; they include drug charges, fraud, and probation violations.

Sheriff’s Nienhuis said in a statement “I am outraged and disappointed in the behavior of this individual.  His actions unfairly hurt the stellar reputations of his fellow Detention Deputies.  The public can rest assured that although these situations are embarrassing, I will never shy away from transparency or from holding my people accountable.”

The investigation continues, according to officials.

  • Corp Sim is a really good guy. His mistake was ******.with a chick much too young for him and obviously an addict. I definitely don’t see him using but then again one never knows these days. He had a bout with poor judgment hey don’t we all. Obviously we all have since we all know him from where he works so we have been in and out of the jail. Let’s just hope he gets a good attorney and beats the charge. Nobody needs their life ruined at 41 years old for a stupid mistake. Good luck to him and I hope he has learned something from this ordeal.

  • As an LEO this Deputy should not have been involved with a habitual offender. Even if he is a good Deputy, he is a terrible judge of people. He should not be allowed to continue in Law Enforcement. Other LEO’s have been terminated for less. If you want a job in L/E you need to hold yourself to a higher standard than an “ordinary” citizen.

  • Sim’s a good man. Everyone makes mistakes, but that’s not what defines someone’s character. I had the honor of getting to know him a few years back, and I don’t care what conclusions are drawn from the article. I know he’s a good man, and I’m sure he’ll land on his feet.

  • Cpl Sims is a good man and has done thousands of dollars worth of fixing and remodeling the county jail,he has put his all into his career as a deputy and this sure sounds like he is being held accountable for his girlfriends actions ,he is that type person that feels the need to protect who he cares dont judge him as we all know we can’t make others do or not do things they choose to do.I believe he should be given a chance to redeem himself after so many years on the sheriff payroll . Cpl Sims keep your head up ….

  • Although I find this to be a good job by the S/O, I would also ask what makes him better than any other arrested person? His picture should be posted and information as to whether or not he is behind bars is not what I would call transparent, any arrest to and including Deputies, and Detention Deputies should be handled as any arrest would be to and including he is innocent until found guilty in a court.
