LARGO – Largo police arrested three residents for drug charges May 5, following complaints that a house on El De Oro Drive was a site for drug sales.
After police began hearing the complaints in mid-March, the department’s Problem Oriented Policing, or POP, Unit began watching the house. During that surveillance, they made several traffic stops, charging the occupants with drug and weapons violations on two occasions.
Other investigation techniques supported the neighbors’ allegations. Given all the circumstances, the POP unit was able to obtain a warrant for the residence, which was served during the early morning hours May 5 with the help of the Tactical Apprehension and Control team.
When they searched the house, police found several grams of marijuana, amphetamines, powder cocaine and ammunition in various places.
Harold Farmbry, 28, of Largo was arrested for with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of amphetamines, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and operating an open drug house. An April 21 arrest for possession of marijuana lists his address as a different residence in Largo, according to Pinellas County Jail records.
Matthew Ulrich, 20, of Largo was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of paraphernalia, and operating an open drug house. He lives in the El De Oro Drive home, according to jail records.
Finally, Jennifer Farmbry, 26, of Largo was arrested for two counts of possession of marijuana.
The department’s Special Operations Unit provided support during the investigation.
