Vice & Narcotics Raid Yields 3-Arrests, Drugs, Guns and Other Peculiar Items
SPRING HILL – Three suspects are behind bars today, after Vice and Narcotics Detectives executed a search warrant at 2117 Deborah Drive.
According to officials at the scene, along with the three men arrested, investigators discovered Cocaine, Prescription Pills, and firearms inside the home. In addition, three safes were discovered – one found buried in the front yard.
Executing the raid had to be well-coordinated to avoid detection by several surveillance cameras positioned around the home.
During the investigations, detectives discovered several strange handmade weapons – one that resembled a possible pipe bomb. As a precaution the Citrus County Bomb Squad responded to inspect the peculiar item. After a scan of the pipe, it was determined not to contain explosives.
Animal Control responded to the scene and took custody of 15 dogs that were all living in the home.
Although the identities of the suspects have not been released, officials say at least two of the men are convicted felons with a long criminal history.
Due to the illegal drug operation being conducted within 1000 feet of a school, the charges will be enhanced, according to officials.
The Sheriff’s Office is expected to release a detailed statement tomorrow, which will include photos of the confiscated items located in the home.
