Five arrested in Tarpon Springs drug bust

TARPON SPRINGS — Authorities arrested five people late Wednesday after a drug investigation on S Grosse Avenue.

Tarpon Springs police said complaints about the home at 514 S Grosse Ave. began months ago. The home is across the street from a community center and around the corner from the Apostolic Church of Jesus. Community members told police that people at the home were openly dealing drugs.

Authorities searched the home Wednesday night after three months of investigation, police said. They arrested Durel T. Mathis, 27; Damon T. Mathis, 29; Brian Current, 25; and Readers Current, 23, on drug-related charges; and Janella L. Jones, 36, on charges of obstructing and resisting without violence.

Police said they found 100 grams of marijuana and 1 gram of crack cocaine inside the home.

By weight, 100 grams equals about 3 1/2 ounces.

Deputies from the Pasco and Pinellas County sheriff's offices, officers from the Clearwater and St. Petersburg police departments and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms also participated in the raid.
