Brooksville raid nets drugs and device used to beat drug tests

BROOKSVILLE — A raid by Hernando authorities on a Brooksville home Tuesday netted two arrests, more than 9 ounces of marijuana, steroids and numerous items of drug paraphernalia.

Detectives also found a homemade duct tape belt they said was used by probationers to smuggle bottles of clean urine into probation offices to fool drug tests.

Hernando County Sheriff's Office vice and narcotics detectives served search warrants at 15064 Bailey Hill Road and found 276.3 grams (almost 10 ounces) of marijuana, two bottles of steroids, $689 in cash and a scale, pipes, syringe, plastic bags, and other items, according to an arrest report.

The duct tape holder wraps around a leg and a bottle of "clean" urine is slid inside the holder, according to authorities. The belt also had a thermometer that would indicate if the urine is at the right temperature to try to fool the drug test.

Detectives arrested Steven Clodfelter, 29, on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of paraphernalia, sale and possession of marijuana, and violation of probation. He was being held without bail.

Also arrested was Adina Cornett, 20, on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia. Her bail was set at $5,500.
