Satanic Drug Dealer to Face 30-Years Behind Bars After Being Captured in Bangkok, Thailand
CITRUS COUNTY – A 12-year-old cold case has finally come to a close, after Citrus County Officials say the U.S. Marshals located their suspect living in Thailand.
According to Officials, 42-year-old Stephen Bishop Hall fled the United States in 2007 after he was convicted of drug trafficking that could have landed him behind bars for 30-years.
When Hall was arrested in 2005, Detectives discovered a kilo and a half of cocaine, oxycodone, LSD, Xanax, Hydrocodone, Marijuana, MDMA (Ecstasy), Testosterone Propionate (steroids), Nandrolone (steroids), Stanozolol (steroids), Methadone, Soma, and Morphine. Citrus County Detective John Novy said, “he operated a candy store for drug addicts.”
Officials closed the investigation after hearing rumors of his death but the U.S. Marshals located him in Bangkok, Thailand earlier this week, after he was arrested for passport fraud.
Hall, a Satanic worshiper, refers to himself as El Diablo (the Devil), and is covered in Satanic tattoos. Hall also had a license plate that reads, S8N LVS (Satan Lives) on his truck.
Sheriff Mike Prendergast said, “This is commitment in its highest form… Not stopping until you get your man. I know our team feels very good about getting this man extradited to Citrus County to face the damage that he caused for many in our community. Thankfully, he won’t be getting out.” Prendergast went on to thank the U.S. Marshals for their “Unwavering commitment to getting Hall off the streets.”
Hall will now go before Judge Richard Howard to face sentencing sometime in December.
