WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - A drug bust at a home in Crawfordville led to the arrest of five people in Wakulla County. 

On June 21, the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office organized a search warrant at 15 Quapaw Street in Crawfordville.  

During the search, deputies found a large bag of a "green leafy substance" believed to be synthetic marijuana from the homeowners bedroom as well as drug paraphernalia in the form of homemade pipes and bongs. 

While being interviewed by deputies, Malcolm McFarlian admitted to the possession of the "green leafy substance," but denied it was synthetic marijuana. After doing more interviews, deputies found out that the drug paraphernalia found in a shed on the property belonged to Raven Harris and Kaylynn Crum.  

The evidence was submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement  for analysis and determined to be the drug "spice," or synthetic marijuana. 

Last Wednesday, deputies obtained arrest warrants charging Malcolm with possession of synthetic cannabis and Harris and Crum with possession of narcotic equipment. 

On Wednesday, when deputies went to arrest Malcolm and Crum, they also found Admiral Barwick, who has been the subject of recent "Wanted Wednesday" Facebook posts by WCSO. 

Tyler Metcalf was also arrested for obstruction after he tried to stop deputies from arresting Malcolm, Crum, and Barwick.  

All five were taken to the Wakulla County Jail.
