FCC raids 'gang-sponsored' pirate radio station in Florida

I am surprised Boing Boing and other media outlets are taking the police at their word, when they have lied so many times in the past about stories like this. Where is the link to the station's web site? Where is proof of any kind?
From Mark Frauenfelder in Boing Boing:
On Saturday the Federal Communications Commission and the Orange County Sheriff's department raided a pirate radio station called "Street Heat" that ran ads for gangs and provided information on where to get drugs and prostitutes.
Police said 20-year-old Balthazard Senat's pirate radio station had illegally tapped into 91.3 FM. DJs behind the microphone had their own rules and regulations as they broadcasted from a bedroom at a home on 30th Street off South Orange Blossom Trail. The radio station's "Street Heat" broadcast could be heard anywhere in Orange County. Police said Senat had been cursing and using derogatory language on the air for about three months.
