-A A +A

Robert Matthew Andrews, 23, and his mother and business partner, Debra Spaulding Andrews, 56, both of Trenton, are under arrest on various drug charges — including the son selling to his mother, according to a Sheriff's Office press release.
During the course of a Levy County Drug Task Force investigation, a confidential informant purchased oxycodone from Robert Andrews on five different occasions between March and May. During one of the drug transactions the younger Andrews was armed with an assault rifle and fired in the air approximately 30 rounds from the front porch.
A search warrant was served at the Andrews home on May 17 and agents recovered 22 oxycodone pills, a marijuana plant, drug paraphernalia, and 12 guns in the son's bedroom. 
He was charged with five counts of sale of a controlled substance, six counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, one count of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count maintaining a drug dwelling and engaging in a crime while in possession of a firearm.
