JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man and woman were arrested Tuesday by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office during a drug raid at a house on Hollycrest Drive on the Westside.

Tommy Baker, 38, and Amanda Roeske, 20, are charged with armed possession of meth and tampering with evidence. 

According to their arrest reports, police found methamphetamine in the living room of the home during the raid, and in the bathroom, where Baker admitted he was trying to flush it down the toilet.

Police also found 12 hunting rifles and boxes of ammunition in the house.

Baker told police that he knew the rifles were in the house, which he shared with another man, but he stayed away from the guns because he’s a convicted felon.
