7 arrested on drug charges in Spring Hill

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.

They were all arrested instead.

Acting on information developed through an undercover officer, Hernando County detectives served a search warrant at the home of Henry Stanley Drzymala, 56, of 3233 Baldwin St.

Drzymala was arrested on charges of possession of crack cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He also was charged with the sale of crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church.

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

Detectives were still in Drzymala's house when five people arrived to buy drugs, according to a police report.

Arrested were:

• Jack Dolan, 38, 9027 Gallup Road, Spring Hill; possession of a controlled substance and attempt to buy crack cocaine.
