Cocaine, dogs, pot seized following Putnam search warrant

Three children and seven dogs were found in a home where police say liquid cocaine was being made

Two men are locked up in Putnam County jail without a chance to post bound. They've been behind bars since Thursday. The two face multiple felony charges including possession and intent to sell cocaine.

First Coast News Reporter Nick Perreault explains what led up to their arrest.

Putnam County's Narcotics and Vice Unit issued a search warrant just before 5 Thursday Morning. Some of what was found is already clear in a police report.

Inside a home on Longtree street in Georgetown, Florida the team would find 53 year-old Lonnell Kinnell on the couch and put him in cuffs without a struggle.

36 year-old Eugene Glover was found in his bedroom. Also there in the center dresser drawer, nearly 30 grams of cocaine packaged for sale. Another 13 grams was found under his bed along with a pencil box filled with about $1,800 in cash.

Three children were inside the home as well when the team entered. The report says the team says they were in good spirits.

The team moved to the kitchen to find a pot on the stove with liquid cocaine,nearly 200 grams of liquid cocaine and marijuana mixed with liquod cocaine. A loaded 9mm pistol was also located in a cabinet.

The Narcotics and Vice unit found plastic bags, a digital scale and homemade crack pipes.

First Coast News reached out to the Putnam County Sheriff's office to explain what led the team to this house and how big of a bust this was for rural Putnam County.

The sheriff's office did not respond to phone calls or a visit to the office with information, only saying they couldn't comment as the investigation is ongoing.

Seven dogs were also found during the search and taken to animal control. Two of the dogs have been claimed by family members and are expected to be picked up. The other five dogs are expected to be picked up Friday, also by family members.
