ST. PETERSBURG – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a St. Petersburg man just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, June 14, on Gandy Beach for possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of listed chemicals.

According to the sheriff’s report, deputies noticed a “suspicious vehicle,” a dark colored Chevy Silverado, parked along the tree line of Gandy Beach. When the deputies made contact with the sole occupant, Charles J. Tapp, 24, they discovered several needles inside the truck.

Deputies also observed Tapp placing items into a bag located in the back seat of the truck. Deputies also saw items indicating the vehicle was possibly being used to cook methamphetamine. Deputies called for assistance of narcotics detectives.

Tapp was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, a controlled substance, and unlawful possession of pseudoephedrine and hydrochloric gas. During an interview, the suspect reportedly admitted to actively manufacturing methamphetamine.

He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bond was set at 12,000.
