Search Warrant Yields Three Arrests – Heightened Enforcement Expected

SPRING HILL – Numerous Law Enforcement Officers from various agencies are working together over the holiday weekend, to take down drug traffickers and drunk drivers.

RNRF has observed several traffic stops in the area over the last few days, and that aggressive approach is expected to continue.

Today, the Sheriff’s Office Vice and Narcotics Unit conducted a search warrant on a residence in Spring Hill, which yielded three arrests.

According to reports, detectives responded to 1240 London Ave, in reference to executing arrest warrants on 44-year-old Valerie Gallo, for the Sale and Possession of both Methamphetamine and Crack Cocaine. Inside the residence, investigators discovered numerous items of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor amount of marijuana, and unidentified pills.

A second suspect, 63-year-old Henry Porch was charged with possessing drug paraphernalia and marijuana. Those same charges were added to Gallo as a result of the search.

The third suspect, 48-year-old Eric Dennis Luhtanen, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for Driving with a Suspended License, when he arrived on the scene during the investigation. Luhtanen was also charged with possession of paraphernalia.

  • Guess we should just let them continue to rob and steal until they kill someone. Most have been given chance after chance and keep right on doing what ever they want

  • Ranting some more
    I’m AMAZED, and feel so CONFUSED, here’s why…
    Each crime related article I read, makes me feel SO COMFORTED and SAFE, because as I read through the comments, I can’t help but feel comforted that SO MANY MEMBERS of this community are CLEARLY the best of the best! These outspoken “individuals” are Upstanding Pillars of Society. It takes a special kind of person to NEVER
    consciously make a bad decision! How AWESOME for those individuals- usually the same type that CLAIM to be genuinely GOOD PEOPLE… you know the REALLY cruel & judgemental one’s, that offer up helpful statements like “lock them up for life” while complaining about their tax dollars “feeding and housing” criminals. Because.. obviously THAT is the way to fix the problem… look at the outstanding success rates of this type of thinking….

  • I RANT because I care (about how aggravated I get when…)
    u I find myself speed reading articles to hurry up and read the comments, for a multitude of reasons; MAINLY, I enjoy taking a glimpse through someone elses point of view- I’m NEVER disappointed by the amount of ABSOLUTE IGNORANCE that some people SPEW! A personal opinion, belief, or feeling doesn’t make something a FACT.
    I just typed so much, that I FORCED myself to delete 5 paragraphs…

  • Where is the meth clinic located?

    Tuesday, 8 September 2015, 2:13 am
  • Most of the people using the methadone clinic down the street are no longer committing crimes. They don’t just hand out that stuff. If you fail drug trusts or go in there high they remove you from there program.

  • Ex cop or not, show his mug shot and embarrass him and his family. If he is ex LEO than he deserves to be made public just like any other criminal. No exceptions. There are too many dirt bags just like these living here. HCSO keep cleaning house. We will all sleep better knowing you are all out there protecting and serving. Tom Lemmons you are a great asset to keeping all of us updated on everything going out there in our community. We would not know anything without RNRF.

    They have no other productive job or ambition and they will return to their favorite lifestyle….junkie, thief and lowlife.
    How do we keep them down after they bail-out or are adjudicated ?

    Saturday, 5 September 2015, 12:26 pm
  • Porch’ s pic disappeared because he told HCSO he was previously a cop. Beautiful dog.

  • When will this state smarten up and get the 3 strikes your out. Then there would be less criminals roaming our streets

  • Good job but to bad the courts feel sorry for them and let them off with probation and drug rehab if they would lock them up and keep them locked it would be better for all

  • What’s scarier than drug addicted personalities are people with no compassion, as witnessed in many comments on this site.

    Saturday, 5 September 2015, 10:57 am
    • They don’t get it. Treating addiction as a disease and offering these people real mental health/rehab services is so much more effective than jail.

      Tuesday, 8 September 2015, 7:21 am
  • I would love to know how many of these drug raids are on criminals utilizing the methadone program down the street.
