NEW PORT RICHEY — A New Port Richey couple was arrested Thursday after deputies found them at their home with about $2,700 worth of cocaine.

Barry, 35, and Sherry Durham, 35, are charged with armed trafficking in cocaine, felony possession of a firearm and other drug possession charges. According to reports, deputies found a loaded handgun in the couple's bedroom along with almost 3 ounces of cocaine.

Sherry Durham was convicted in 2007 for cocaine possession, reports say.

She and Barry Durham were being held in Land O' Lakes jail Friday, both in lieu of $160,300 bail.
