SPRING HILL - The Hernando County Sheriff's Office arrested a Spring Hill man Thursday on charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and three counts of drug paraphernalia possession.

According to an arrest report written by Deputy Lauren Aleski, she and Deputy Dane Jenkins saw a silver Mazda pickup swerve onto a Spring Hill Drive median.

After pulling over the car to check on the driver, Aleski noticed Jonathan Huff, 25, was wearing colors and had tattoos that indicated he was a gang member. Huff appeared nervous, and when asked to empty his pockets, he produced a bag with about 16 Oxycodone pills, as well as a spoon, syringe and a scale.

Huff later told the deputies he has a prescription for Dilaudid and Oxycodone and he sells the pills, making about $2,000 a day. Huff said he had about 400 customers and also sells marijuana, according to the report.

Huff was booked in the Hernando County Jail, and his bond is set at $11,500.

Court records show Huff was adjudicated guilty of unlawful use of a driver's license in 2012.
