SPRING HILL — While detectives were busy arresting a Spring Hill man on drug charges Friday, several people whom police described as the man's drug customers arrived to do business.

Jeanette Michele Lede, 27, of the same Baldwin Street address, was arrested on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
