Two arrested in west Pasco drug bust

PORT RICHEY — More than 74 grams of crack cocaine were found during a drug bust Thursday, as well as 39 grams of marijuana, two guns and ammunition, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Two people were arrested — Linda Exline, 18 and George Lewis IV, 29 — at their home, 10826 Piccadilly Road in Holiday Hill Estates.

An undercover deputy bought crack three times from Lewis before the raid, a report states.

Lewis and Exline both face charges of armed manufacturing and trafficking crack cocaine, as well as other drug charges. Exline is also charged with violating her felony drug probation. She is being held without bail at the Pasco County jail.

Lewis, who has served three stints in prison for drugs, battery and theft, is in custody in lieu of $370,150 bail.

  1. Controversial pick for next principal of St. Petersburg High put on hold

    Blogs

    Robert Gagnon was all set to be the new principal at St. Petersburg High, a plum position in the Pinellas County school district. His name was on a list of top administrative candidates to be approved at a special School Board meeting Tuesday.

    Robert Gagnon, who currently serves as an assistant principal at Northeast High in St. Petersburg, was tapped to lead St. Petersburg High next year pending School Board approval. The recommendation for his appointment was pulled from the School Board agenda by school district superintendent Mike Grego on Monday in light of "new information shared with me" regarding Gagnon's administrative experience in Lake County, according to an email sent to Pinellas County School Board members.

  4. Goodbye Tampa Bay Express, hello Tampa Bay Next; but toll lanes aren't going anywhere

    Transportation

    TAMPA — Tampa Bay Express is dead.

    But it's replacement — Tampa Bay Next — will likely include many of the same projects, including express toll lanes on the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge.

    The Florida Department of Transportation on Monday announced that it was renaming its Tampa Bay Express plan, also known as TBX. The plan will now be known as Tampa Bay Next, or TBN. DOT officials say there are still re-evaluating the most controversial aspect of the old TBX plan: spend $6 billion to add 90 miles of toll roads to bay area highways - Interstates 4,75 and 275 - that are currently free of tolls. But TBN will keep the plan to add express toll lanes to the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge. [Florida Department of Transportation]
