Tampa police arrested 10 people on drug-related charges Tuesday, the result of a three-month investigation of an alleged local marijuana distribution organization. The 80 charges included delivery of marijuana, conspiracy to deliver marijuana, cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana and violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act.
Five homes in Hillsborough, Pasco and Manatee counties were searched early Tuesday. Officers confiscated $4,500, several firearms, 330 grams of marijuana and four vehicles.
The investigation began when someone called police about an unusual amount of traffic at a house in his neighborhood.
