Four arrested on drug charges at Clearwater home

CLEARWATER — Police arrested four people during the execution of a search warrant Wednesday evening after an undercover investigation revealed drugs were being sold from a Clearwater home, authorities said.

According to arrest reports, two of the people had previously sold prescription drugs from a home at 1375 Barry St. off of S Highland Avenue. The other two were found with drugs in their possession.

Amanda Renee Walter, 29, was charged with trafficking in oxycodone, sale and possession of oxycodone and marijuana. Jeremy Allen Gilbert, 31, was charged with principal to the sale of oxycodone. Brian Wesley Tretter, 21, was charged with possession of cocaine and Marcus Jerome McAffee, 28, was charged with possession of marijuana.

According to police, Walter, Gilbert and Tretter all lived at the Barry Street home. McAffee's address was listed as 55 Jasper St., No. 1, in Largo.

Clearwater police obtained a search warrant after undercover detectives purchased drugs from Walter at the home at least three times over the past month, arrest reports show. Gilbert participated in at least one deal in February when he took the money from the detective and handed it to Walter, according to an arrest report.

Police on Wednesday seized $2,618 in cash, 121 oxycodone pills, 100 pieces of crack cocaine and about five ounces of marijuana.

On Thursday afternoon, Walter was being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $145,300 bail. Gilbert was being held on $5,000 bail. Tretter was released early Thursday morning after posting $5,000 bail. McAffee was released on his own recognizance.
