A Spring Hill man was arrested just past midnight on Tuesday after a sheriff’s deputy found marijuana and pills in his Toyota Corolla, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

After being pulled over for driving without his headlights on Lee Christian Piermatteo, 27, began looking for his license in a book bag. The deputy saw two small plastic bags inside, and Piermatteo later said he did not have a driver’s license.

A check of the car found 10 Oxycodone and six Hydromorphone pills, two syringes and a ledger with “notes of recent narcotics transactions,” the arrest affidavit said.

Piermatteo was arrested on two charges of possessing a controlled substance with intent to sell, one count of drug equipment, driving with a license suspended, and bonded out for $3,000 Tuesday afternoon.

Court records show Piermatteo avoided a guilty adjudication in February on a charge of driving with a suspended license in traffic court.
