Amaurea Dulin[fb], 21, is held in lieu of $104,500 bond after police found him to be in possession of 41 grams of heroin, and in possession of a loaded Ruger P94 handgun, while searching for a murder suspect.
Police were attempting to locate a murder suspect on Monday evening, and conducted a knock-and-talk at an apartment at 270 Tampa Drive. As officers knocked, they could smell marijuana coming from the apartment, and they were let into the residence. Officers immediately noticed a small baggie containing a light brown substance on the couch, within plain view, and another similar bag on the floor beside the couch, in addition to a scale on the entertainment center in the living room where they were standing.
The scene was frozen, and search warrant was applied for, granted, and executed. As a result of the search, officers also found a loaded Ruger P94 in a backpack beside the larger bag of heroin. The total weight of all heroin recovered was 41 grams.
There was an additional person in the home, Adrian Gaines, who was arrested and charged with a handgun found in his bedroom.
Dulin was charged with possession of heroin with intent, drug paraphernalia, possession with intent of a SCH II over 26 grams, and possession of a weapon. He also had additional outstanding charges, for which he is also held on bond, including theft of property, possession with intent of marijuana, and possession of a handgun while under the influence of marijuana. He is held in lieu of a $104,500 bond.
