A response to a domestic disturbance turned into a drug bust when Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputies discovered drugs, paraphernalia, and a firearm at the scene.

In a written statement, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said that on Dec. 26, Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a domestic disturbance that began inside a vehicle and spilled onto the roadway near Commercial Way and Northcliffe Boulevard.

While investigating the incident, law enforcement personnel discovered a stash of marijuana, a variety of drug paraphernalia and a handgun that had been reported to the Temple Terrace Police Department as lost.

A male suspect at the scene became combative, kicked the investigating deputies, and resisted arrest.

He was transported to the Hernando County Detention Center.
