Pair arrested after drug raid in Spring Hill

SPRING HILL — Sheriff deputies raided a suspected drug house on Jamaica Road, seizing a large amount of cocaine, more than $1,500 in cash and five weapons Thursday, according to a news release.

Investigators arrested two people who lived at the home, Rovert Burgos, 28, and Rebecca Hanna, 23.

Both are charged with trafficking in cocaine, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Burgos also faces five counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of sale and possession of cocaine, reports state.

Deputies executed the search warrant after conducting an investigation of narcotic sales from the home at 6434 Jamaica Road, which is located in a neighborhood off Spring Hill Drive.

Investigators found nearly one and a half pounds of powder cocaine bagged in smaller quantities for sale, eight grams of crack cocaine and 32 grams of marijuana. They also took $1,656 in mostly small bills, a .38-caliber revolver, two automatic pistols and two semi-automatic rifles, reports state.
