LAND O'LAKES — Pasco sheriff's detectives seized 40 grams of heroin, thousands of prescription pills and 10 pounds of marijuana during a drug bust Thursday.

Detectives entering the home at 20714 Broadwater Drive, in the upscale Pasco Sunset Lakes neighborhood near State Road 54 and U.S. 41, saw boxes of marijuana and paraphernalia in plain sight, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

A search of the home turned up 3,476 hydrocodone pills, 1,550 Xanax pills, 366 doses of steroids, 290 oxycodone pills, 215 Soma pills, 151 pills of ecstasy and 34 Valium pills, the report said. Detectives also found the heroin and marijuana, plus 13.7 grams of cocaine.

Four firearms — including two that had been reported as stolen out of Hillsborough County — were recovered, the Sheriff's Office said.

The man renting the home, Nathan Andrew Coll, 31, was arrested on charges of trafficking in heroin, possession of controlled substances without a prescription, felony possession of marijuana and possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute.

He remained Friday in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $70,000 bail.
