Media Release 12/11/19 11:18 AM

On 12-10-19, detectives with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Vice and Narcotics Unit with assistance from the Hernando County Sheriff’s S.W.A.T. Team executed a search warrant at 2279 Rio Circle in Spring Hill.

Deputies have responded to calls for service or initiated activity at this residence over 200 times since January 1, 2019. Most calls for service involved illegal drug activity or wanted persons.

Throughout the investigation, detectives learned the owner of the residence Nicholas Mario Pisciotta, was selling a moderate amount of illegal narcotics from the residence in an effort to fund his own addiction. Pisciotta also permitted his friends and acquaintances to come to his residence to both use and sell illegal narcotics.

During the execution of the search warrant on 12-10-19, detectives located a minimal amount of illegal narcotics and a vast amount of drug paraphernalia (see photos). To reiterate, Pisciotta was not suspected of dealing large amounts of illegal narcotics. He permitted others, who did not live/stay there, to sell illegal narcotics from his residence.
