Spring Hill man, woman face drug charges after search of home

SPRING HILL — A search of a home last week yielded drugs, cash and a stolen handgun, the Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.

Acting Friday on a warrant at 4390 Candler Ave., detectives discovered 4.7 ounces of crack cocaine, tools for making the drug, nearly 80 grams of marijuana, three muscle relaxant tablets and a stolen 9mm handgun, according to a news release.

The gun had been taken during a 2011 burglary in Hernando County, detectives said.

Investigators also seized $5,680 in cash, a .38-caliber derringer handgun, a home surveillance system and a 2006 Dodge Magnum.

The Florida Department of Children and Families responded because two children were living in the house, the Sheriff's Office said.

Steven Delaine Jr., 36, and Sharena Brown, 27, were arrested and charged with cocaine trafficking, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of structure for drug manufacturing with minor children present, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Delaine was also charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of stolen property and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. He was being held without bail Tuesday at the Hernando County Detention Center because he was out on bail after a January arrest on a cocaine trafficking charge, records show.

Brown was released Monday after posting $85,500 bail, records show.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
