11 nabbed in multicounty oxycodone roundup

BROOKSVILLE — Authorities arrested 11 people Friday in Hernando, Pasco and Citrus counties on suspicion of their involvement in an oxycodone ring.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office, which announced the arrests Monday, said the suspects were taken into custody as part of a warrant roundup. The investigation is still ongoing, and authorities said information is limited at this time.

The suspects were arrested on a number of drug-related offenses.

Those arrested in the roundup are: Herman Allen III, 36, of New Port Richey; Danial Cade, 23, of Spring Hill; Herbie Crussell, 33, address unknown; Kristopher Lee Macannan, 25, of Brooksville; Raymond James Marise, 22, address unknown; Rhian Weston Toole, 30, of Spring Hill; Holly Anne Toole, 34, of Spring Hill; Jimmy Curry, 33, of Spring Hill; Michael Kenyon, 32, of Brooksville; Bruce Butler, 52, of Brooksville; and Talia Carter, 28, of Spring Hill.

Last week's arrests come on the heels of a large bust last month, when the Sheriff's Office announced they had shut down a large prescription drug trafficking ring as part of "Operation Oxy-Blues," a nearly four-month investigation that resulted in the arrests of 23 people.
