Largo Man Charged With Operating A Drug House After Several Alleged Drug Buys By Undercover Deputies

A Largo man is facing a raft of charges based upon allegations by deputies that he operated a drug house in unincorporated Pinellas County.

Per the deputies, the 31-year-old man was marketing crack cocaine from the home. Undercover officers say they made several purchases at the home, allowing them to develop sufficient probable cause to obtain a warrant to search the home.

Upon entering the home, deputies say they discovered a variety of illegal drugs in salable quantities. Among the illegal drugs allegedly found in the home were 5 ounces of cocaine, ecstasy, oxycodone, and several others. Deputies say they also found a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver that they described as “consistent with drug dealing.”

The Florida native was arrested at his home and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. At present he faces charges of possession of alprazolam, possession of oxycodone, possession of ecstasy, operating a drug house, and armed trafficking in powder cocaine. He was released later that day after posting a surety bond of $24,000.
