Three accused in drug operation at Largo home

LARGO — Largo police on Monday morning arrested three people suspected of running a drug enterprise out of an El de Oro Drive home.

Harold Farmbry, 28, and Matthew Ulrich, 20, are both charged with operating an open drug house along with multiple counts of drug or paraphernalia possession. Jennifer Farmbry, 26, was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on two counts of marijuana possession.

Harold Farmbry was also charged with possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.

Authorities said they launched an investigation into 2261 El de Oro Drive in mid-March after receiving complaints about suspected narcotics sales.

Surveillance by Largo's Problem Oriented Policing Unit resulted in several traffic stops in which officers found drugs and weapons, plus other evidence.

A search warrant served on the home early Monday netted several grams of marijuana, amphetamines, powder cocaine and ammunition, police said.

    There are some local places that I'm shocked aren't more well known, and I think that's the result of a general aversion to stepping out of one's comfort zone. I make regular concerted efforts to step outside of mine, which often leads me to strange and rewarding drinking establishments.
