BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Henk Schiffer, a man loosely tied to the resignation of former Boca Raton Police Chief Andrew Scott, is in the Palm Beach County Jail this morning on a drug charge.

Schiffer, of Forest Hill Lane, was taken into custody late last evening — accused of possessing a controlled substance without a prescription. The arrest comes just days after he received three motor vehicle citations in one day.

Local media reported back in 2005 that then police chief Andrew Scott arranged for a traffic stop involving Schiffer which provided opportunity for a local TV reporter to question him on what was called “suspicious activity.”  Scott was cleared of wrongdoing. Schiffer was adjudicated “guilty” on a criminal mischief charge in 2004.

He has also faced roughly 40 legal proceedings in Palm Beach County, according to the Palm Beach County Clerk’s office.
