TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Two men have been arrested after a drug operation led deputies to uncover 1.5 pounds of meth, a stolen gun and a stolen scooter at a Tallahassee home.

Warren Craig Hudson, 37, and Jeremy Wright, 38, were arrested on Feb. 4. 

According to arrest documents, the Leon County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit made several undercover drug purchases at Hudson's home in January.

On Feb. 4, deputies served a search warrant at Hudson's home in the 1500 block of Country Lane. Before serving the warrant, documents note Hudson was spotted leaving the residence in a vehicle with another person.

He and the other person were quickly detained for questioning.

Upon arrival, deputies found a man, identified as Jeremy Wright, asleep inside a silver truck parked at the residence. When they searched his car, they found 3 grams of meth, a scale and syringes in "what could be best described as a 'backpack.'"

Based on what they found, Wright was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of narcotic equipment.

Near the front porch of the home, documents say deputies found a black scooter reported stolen out of Tallahassee. During a search of the home, deputies found approximately 10.8 ounces of meth in a freezer and about 12.2 ounces of meth in a bag inside a bedroom.

They also found several prescription pills, cannabis, a digital scale and a handgun reported stolen out of Jefferson County.

According to court documents, Hudson told investigators that the gun and drugs didn't belong to him. He admitted that he knew about them being in his home, but claimed he was holding them for someone else.

"He did advise he has sold narcotics but had just begun to do so," investigators wrote in the arrest document.

The person who was detained with Hudson told deputies she knew nothing about the drugs or gun and advised that while she may use meth from "time to time," she had no knowledge about anyone selling drugs.

Based on the evidence, Hudson was arrested and charged with three counts of trafficking meth, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, distribution of drugs, grand theft of a firearm, possession of marijuana, possession of narcotic equipment, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

He and Wright have since been released from jail. Documents say the other person who was detained with Hudson is not being charged at this time.
