FRANKLIN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — A meth dealer is off the streets of Franklin County, after a major drug bust.

Deputies arrested Larry Warren, who they say is a well-known dealer, for trafficking and possession of several different drugs, including meth, heroin, and Zanex. Warren was in possession of over 10 ounces of illegal drugs when brought down by investigators.

Deputies say they've been trying to catch him for a while and busted him this time when they set up undercover drug buys.

In connection with the case, they also arrested Jennifer Larkin on charges of meth possession with intent to sell, manufacture and deliver.

"We've talked about rehabilitation for the people that want it. We still are open to that, but when you're selling ounces you're not using, you're corrupting our community," said Sheriff A.J. Smith. "You're a plague here, and we want you out."

The sheriff's office is working with the DEA, and other agencies.

This case is still currently under investigation, as they are working to take down others, whom they believe, are working with Warren.
