Florida police arrested five people during a before-dawn raid of a Winter Haven home earlier this month. All five are now facing various drug charges. It's unknown what information prompted the officer's search, which was conducted during the early morning hours on October 12. Authorities purportedly found prescription painkillers and anti-anxiety medications in the home, as well as marijuana. In addition to the prescriptions, materials such as a scale and baggies were found in the residence. The discovery of the additional materials prompted authorities to assume the marijuana was intended for sale.
The twin 20-year-old brothers were arrested on single counts of trafficking in hydrocodone, possession of marijuana with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a church and possession of marijuana. They were also accused of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, resisting arrest without violence, and possession of drug paraphernalia. A 40-year-old woman and another man of unknown age were arrested on charges of maintaining a dwelling for selling narcotics. In addition, officers arrested a 17-year-old for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting an officer without violence.
