Jeremy Cray charged with Trafficking in Cocaine after police find 36 ounces of cocaine in house

SARASOTA, Fla. - A 26-year-old Sarasota man is facing a cocaine trafficking charge following the discovery of 36 ounces of cocaine in a house.

On Wednesday, June 11, officers with Sarasota's Narcotics Unit along with the SWAT and Street Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at 1476 19th Street in Sarasota.

A judge granted the warrant following a drug investigation where the suspect sold cocaine from the home.

During the search, detectives seized a large amount of cocaine. Located under a bed were 41 small baggies containing 11.9 grams of power cocaine. An additional 14.8 grams of power cocaine was found in a large bag under the bed.

Officers also found 9.3 grams of rock cocaine inside an Aleve bottle sitting on a dresser. Inside a red bag in a closet police found a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver.

Investigators later determined the gun was reported stolen out of Sarasota County.

Jeremy Cray, the only man inside the home when the search warrant was executed, was arrested by officers for multiple charges.

Right now, the 26-year-old Cray is facing three felonies (Armed Trafficking in Cocaine, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and Possession of Ammunition by a Convicted Felon), and one misdemeanor (Violation of Probation).

Cray is being held without bond at the Sarasota County Jail.
