St. Petersburg police, ATF arrest two on drugs, weapons charges

ST. PETERSBURG — Local and federal law enforcement officials wrapped up a two-month investigation Thursday with the arrests of two people on several weapons and drug charges.

St. Petersburg police and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives served a search warrant about 6:15 a.m. at a house at 1818 14th Ave. S.

Authorities seized three firearms, including two assault rifles, ammunition, a half-kilo of powdered cocaine and 13 grams of crack cocaine, a digital scale, and more than $10,000 cash.

Police arrested Roderick Lenard Casteel, 31, and Angela Denise Davis, 37, inside the home.

Casteel faces federal charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, cocaine possession, and crack cocaine possession. He was expected to appear before a federal magistrate Thursday afternoon.

Davis was arrested on a charge of cocaine trafficking and remained in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.

No further information was available.
