Hillsborough Sheriff Charges 3 in Spice Bust
The arrests came after a two-month undercover investigation.
TAMPA – Hillsborough sheriff’s deputies have accused three men of violating drug laws after seizing 11 pounds of spice at a local business.
Arrested and charged with delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance were Christopher Campbell, 29, and Benjamin Sanford, 24, both of 6901 Travis Blvd. in Tampa, and Lance Edgeman, Jr., 32, of 3012 Barret Ave. in Plant City.
Deputies said the arrests came after a two-month-long investigation involving the sale of spice from the Beverage Castle, 4206 Orient Road. Undercover deputies said they were able purchase spice several times from employees of the Beverage Castle. Deputies then got a search warrant and, about 6 p.m. Tuesday (March 29), they searched the Beverage Castle. Deputies said they found about 249 bags – about 11 pounds – of spice worth about $5,000 and $4,725 in cash. A large quantity of the spice was concealed in the wall covered by a large board, they said.
