WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Five people are behind bars after deputies received citizen reports alleging drug activity on their property.

The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office says they had received several complaints from citizens alleging drug activity at 5 Summer Lane.

The primary residence at that address is a double wide mobile home, but there are also two small campers on the property. Deputies say the homeowner was identified as Carl Cocroft. 

On April 28, deputies arrested Zane Cole Lucas for possession of meth after a chase that ended at 5 Summer Lane. Later, Lucas confirmed that he lived in one of the campers on the property.

On May 1, deputies stopped a vehicle that left 5 Summer Lane and arrested the driver, Lisa Wells, for possession of methamphetamine with the intent to sell. She stated she also lived in one of the campers.

On May 3, WCSO stopped a vehicle near Bloxham Cuttoff and Old Woodville Highway and arrested the passenger, Christina Pilgrim, with the possession of meth who stated she lived in a camper at 5 Summer Lane as well.

On Friday, deputies searched the property and found meth, heroin, and marijuana as well as drug smoking devices and needles. Wells, Lucas, Pilgrim, Cocroft, and Amy Richardson were present during the search.

All of them are facing multiple drug charges.

WCSO credits the arrests to the narcotics unit and sheriff’s enforcement unit (SEU), who targets specific "hot spots" in the county. 

The SEU is a sub-unit of the narcotics unit, and utilizes an unmarked vehicle outfitted with the equipment necessary to conduct traffic enforcement and to operate a drug detection K-9.
