HOMOSASSA, Fla. — Two men were arrested early Wednesday morning when the Citrus County Sheriff's Office served a drug search warrant at their residence. 

“This home has been the subject of many calls for service over the past two years due to the amount of incoming and outgoing traffic at the residence,” said Sheriff Mike Prendergast.

The house was searched by the Tactical Impact Unit, Community Crimes Unit and deputies after it was secured by the SWAT team. 

The Sheriff's office found methamphetamine, distribution equipment and other drug paraphernalia inside. Two men were arrested on the property.

Lawrence Roddenberry, 42, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of medication without a prescription and possession of paraphernalia. 

Robert Terry, also 42, was found with a methamphetamine pipe and needle. He was arrested for possession of paraphernalia. 

“It takes time for an investigation of this magnitude to be fully executed, but we end up locking up the criminals in the end,” Sheriff Prendergast added. 

This was the third time Roddenberry has come into contact with the Tactical Impact Unit. He was arrested in 2012 for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. And in 2015 he was arrested for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
