PALM COAST, Fla. – A drug-dealing mother stashed more than 200 painkillers, 300-plus grams of marijuana and several thousand dollars in cash in her 5-year-old son's bedroom at a suspected drug house in Palm Coast, according to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies on Thursday morning executed a search warrant at the home on Port Lane and arrested Yuumi Obama, 30, Yuriy Krivoshey, 28, and Jeremy Toumbs, 37. 

The search began with Obama's room where deputies said they found 1.89 grams of marijuana, a glass bong and a glass smoking pipe. When deputies entered Obama's old bedroom, where her 5-year-old son was sleeping, she directed them to two safes in the closet.

The safes contained 331.37 grams of cannabis; 273 pills identified as various painkillers and sedatives, including oxycodone and alprazolam; and $1,780 in cash, according to the charging affidavit.

Scales, plastic baggies, rubber bands and unlabeled prescription pill bottles were found in drawers next to the safes, deputies said. Also in the closet, deputies said they found $6,051 in cash and marijuana stems.

The report said deputies found 2.59 grams of marijuana, .80 grams of a ground up tablets, .38 grams of a reddish powder, a red tablet, a blue tablet, a yellow tablet and a silver scale in Toumbs' bedroom. At least one substance tested positive for MDMA, deputies said.

Krivoshey, who is Obama's boyfriend, did not have any drugs on his person when the warrant was executed, but because marijuana and paraphernalia were found in the room he shares with Obama, he was arrested, according to the affidavit.

Obama was charged with trafficking in oxycodone, possession of cannabis with intent to distribute, possession of a schedule II controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance with intent to distribute, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Toumbs was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of less than 20-grams of cannabis. 

Krivoshey was charged with violation of probation.

“You’re selling drugs in the wrong county. We just added three more ‘guests’ to the Green Roof Inn,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This was a great job by our Special Investigations Unit, and more poison peddlers in our community are off our streets.” 

Deputies said further charges are pending as the investigation continues.
