Brooksville woman arrested after deputies find meth, marijuana

BROOKSVILLE

Meth, marijuana found in home

A Brooksville woman faces multiple drug charges after deputies acting on a search warrant Friday morning found methamphetamine and marijuana at her home.

Hernando County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived at the home of Taryn Lane Murray, 6128 Zirkels Circle, and found two bags of methamphetamine in her bra, an arrest report said. The bags contained a total of nearly 12 grams of the drug, the report said.

A search of the rest of the home uncovered a small amount of marijuana, three oxycodone pills, and "numerous" items of drug paraphernalia including a digital scale that tested positive for methamphetamine residue, the report said.

Murray, 24, told detectives she sells about an ounce of methamphetamine each week, the report said.

She was charged with possession of drugs and paraphernalia but more charges may be added as the investigation continues, authorities said. She was taken to the Hernando County Jail, where she remained in lieu of $21,000 bail.

Also arrested was Donald Wood of Wildwood Lane in Lutz. Wood, 30, admitted to smoking methamphetamine in the home that morning and was charged with violation of probation.
