Drug Bust in New Port Richey

Pasco Sheriff’s Office Vice and Narcotics deputies made entry into a home at 11106 Oyster Bay Circle, New Port Richey, in the Waters Edge subdivision early Wednesday morning, locating drugs, guns, and stolen property inside the home.

Tabitha Lynn Parrent, 28, and Steven Michael Kelly, 26, were arrested and face combined charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of Spice, and possession of a sawed-off shotgun.
During the operation, a grandmother in the home left the bed she was sharing with her two, young grandchildren and hid in the bathroom, leaving the kids alone.

The action by our deputies was the result of several complaints we received by neighbors on the tenants who rent the house. Deputies conducted a lengthy surveillance on the home before Wednesday morning’s arrests.
