BROOKSVILLE - Three Homosassa residents were arrested on numerous drug charges Friday near Winding Water K8 after being pulled over for having heavily tinted windows.

Donald Eugene Reyburn, 47, was also pulling a utility trailer that a Hernando County Sheriff's Office arrest report said had an extensively damaged license tag that was unreadable.

Eugene and two passengers, Amy Lynn Phibbs, 42, and Jonathon Andrew Wyatt Jr., 18, were pulled over at Commercial Way and Knuckey Road.

Reyburn gave the deputy written consent to search the vehicle, where a small baggie of methamphetamine was found behind the rear passenger floorboard, and a blue metal box behind the rear bench seat with three additional baggies of methamphetamine, the report shows.

There was also a pouch with additional methamphetamine and a glass smoking pipe with burnt residue, a marijuana joint, six Alprazolam pills and four methadone pills.

Jail records show each were arrested on charges of drug possession within 1,000 feet of a school, three counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Total bond amount for the charges is $26,000.

During booking, Phibbs said her purse was still in the vehicle, and requested it be brought to the jail with her. The deputy retrieved the purse, which contained an additional baggie with a small amount of methamphetamine.

Phibbs received an additional charge of attempting to bring contraband into the jail, which carried a $5,000 bond.

Jail records show Phibbs will be released on her own recognizance for all charges except the drug possession within 1,000 feet of a school and smuggling contraband charge.

Her total bond amount is $15,000.
