Nine arrested in Spring Hill marijuana raid

SPRING HILL — Nine people were arrested on drug charges after a raid on a home found more than a pound of marijuana, scales and other drug paraphernalia.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office gave this account: In the raid Friday afternoon at 7160 Skylark Drive, detectives found a plastic bag with 446.4 grams of marijuana in an open safe. In a wooden storage basket, they found a plastic bag with 1 pound of marijuana.

More marijuana, drugs and drug paraphernalia were located throughout the home.

Among those arrested were Joseph Davila, 23, of 7160 Skylark Drive, who told detectives he obtained the marijuana from the Orlando area to sell in order to pay bills and buy "stuff."

Davila said the last trip to Orlando was with Keith Landford, 27, and that they hauled the pot in Landford's car. Landford was also arrested in the raid.

Davila also had two active warrants on charges of sale and possession of marijuana.

Also arrested on drug-related charges were Michael Marcial, 29, of Orlando; and Ashley Cawthorn, 19, Letesha Walls, 21, Morgan Marshall Deveny, 18, Tyler Holsinger, 18, Joseph Intoci, 18, and Justin Pagano, 18, all of Spring Hill.
