TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Three men are in jail after deputies searched their home and discovered they were selling large amounts of meth from their Tallahassee home.

During the month of October, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office sent an undercover detective to buy drugs from a home located in the 3100 block of Bicycle Road. 

On Tuesday, deputies searched a home located in the 3100 block of Bicycle Road.

According to court documents, when officers first entered the home they identified the first suspect, James Wooden, who was walking out of the bedroom when officers entered. They immediately put Wooden in handcuffs and continued their search.

Deputies then entered the bedroom of the home and put two more suspects in handcuffs, Nathan Davison and Brian Oconnell.

Documents say deputies searched the room, they found a large bag of suspected methamphetamine, another bag of assorted narcotics and drug paraphernalia.

According to documents, officers found a backpack on the bed in the room that had 55 grams of cannabis, a loaded handgun, and THC oil.

Since Wooden’s car was on the property during the search warrant, officers also searched his vehicle. 

Inside the car, officers found a bag of meth totaling 261 grams and a loaded pistol. Behind the passenger seat, officers found $2,088 in cash, $265.27 in Wooden’s shirt pocket and $1,288.15 in his pants pocket.

When deputies searched Brian Oconnell, they found five credit/debit cards that didn’t belong to Oconnell. Officers also found five separate ID cards in his wallet.

Documents say officers spoke with Davison and he told them that all the drugs, money and weapons belonged to him.

Meanwhile, Oconnell told officers he didn’t know about any of the drugs, but he did admit that the backpack with 55 grams of cannabis belonged to him.

Based on the evidence, all three suspects Wooden, Oconnell, and Davison were arrested and face multiple charges including trafficking several types of drugs and possession of firearm.
