Handguns, cocaine marijuana and drug money led to the arrest of two people,  after the Indian River County Sheriff's Office S.W.A.T. team executed a search warrant early Friday morning, officials say. 

The incident happened in the 4300 block of 33rd Avenue.

Two handguns, one of which had been reported stolen from an Indian River County home in 2014, were recovered.  Detectives also recovered nearly seven grams of cocaine in both powder and crack form, two grams of marijuana, miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, and $2,370.00 in drug money.

According to investigators, both residents, 38-year-old Tony Weems and 37-year-old Tina Jones, were arrested on previous warrants for sale and possession of cocaine. They were both also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine and possession of less than twenty grams of marijuana.

Weems remains in the Indian River County Jail on $97,500.00 bond while Jones, who is also still incarcerated, received $100,000.00 bond.
