Valley was arrested by BSO's Gang Investigations Task Force after an investigation that began earlier this year.

Detectives executing search warrants recovered three dozen firearms and drugs including oxycodone, cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis and other narcotics, officials said.

Photos released by BSO showed the multitude of rifles, handguns and drugs that were seized.

Neighbors said they watched as dozens of law enforcement officers knocked down the door at Valley's home and took him into custody.

The neighbors described Valley as a nice kid and said they always saw him smoking marijuana on his stoop with different people. They said there was always a lot of traffic in front of his home, different cars coming and going each night. 

Valley was booked into the Broward jail, where his bond was set at $7,500, records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.

The investigation is still ongoing, officials said.
