Two Floral City men were arrested on drug charges on Friday by the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Impact Unit (TIU) following a narcotics search warrant at 5829 S. Liveoak Drive.

Subsequently, the homeowner, 55-year-old Timothy Wilson and home occupant, 51-year-old Tammy Walker were arrested.

Prior to the execution of the search warrant at this home, TIU detectives learned that Wilson was known to traffic in methamphetamine.

After a thorough search of the residence, detectives located cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, cannabis, oxycodone pills, morphine pills and $1,370.

During his interview with detectives, Wilson admitted to selling narcotics from the residence. His charges are as follows:

  • Trafficking in methamphetamine

  • Possession with intent to sell heroin

  • Possession with intent to sell  cocaine

  • Possession with intent to sell oxycodone 30 MG

  • Possession with intent to sell oxycodone 15 MG

  • Possession of a controlled substance morphine

  • Possession of paraphernalia

Wilson’s total bond was set at $56,000. Wilson’s counterpart, Walker was charged with one count of possession of paraphernalia and issued a notice to appear.

This search warrant and arrests come the same week as the arrest of 18-year-old Kaleb Rosenka (DOB-12/20/01) who was charged with selling LSD to undercover detectives.
