SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested two people after they say a search warrant uncovered large amounts of methamphetamine.

Gilbert Langford, 40, and Tamara Poole, 57, have both been charged on a felony count of trafficking in methamphetamine. Poole was charged for allegedly having more than 200 grams.

Detectives began their investigation in August after receiving information that Langford was allegedly selling meth from an RV parked at a residence at the 1800 block of Bayonne Street.

Detectives say they and a confidential source were able to purchase meth from Langford and received a search warrant Wednesday to search the RV and home on Bayonne Street, which belongs to Poole.

Deputies say that more than 27 grams of meth was recovered in Langford’s RV and inside Poole’s home along with an additional 432 grams of the drug inside Poole’s purse.
