St. Petersburg Police: domestic dispute turns into drug bust (w/video)

ST. PETERSBURG — A domestic dispute turned into a drug bust Wednesday after a woman led police to a man's stash of drugs and weapons.

The woman, who police did not name, called police about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday to tell them she'd been fighting with Bruce Chainay, 59, and wanted their help in getting her belongings out of his house.

Police went to Chainay's home at 6434 31st St. S and waited for the woman to arrive. She told them Chainay had marijuana and guns inside. Police said she pulled a large baggie of marijuana out of a bedroom closet to show them, and officers found another 35-gallon plastic container with 27 pounds of marijuana inside.

Police also found 16 guns, 11 rifles, 2 handguns, and 3 BB guns in the closet. They confiscated $38,000 cash and several thousand rounds of ammunition. Chainay was charged with armed trafficking in marijuana. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail, where he was held on $50,000 bond.
