The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested three people Thursday following a series of undercover drug buys and subsequent search warrant.

The investigation began in late 2017 when Cody Frost, DOB 01/30/97, sold fentanyl to undercover detectives on four separate occasions in November and December, out of his home located at 4636 Garcia Avenue in Sarasota. On Thursday, detectives executed a search warrant on the home where they recovered several prescription opioids, marijuana, needles, baggies and other drug paraphernalia. Frost and roommates Theodore Phillips and Michelle Corbin were all arrested and transported to the Sarasota County Jail.

Frost faces four counts of Sale of Fentanyl within 1,000 feet of a Church and remains in custody on $60,000 bond. Phillips, DOB 08/02/60, is charged with Possession of Oxycodone with Intent to Sell and Possession of Narcotic Equipment. Corbin, DOB 06/14/69, is charged with Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Narcotic Equipment. Phillips and Corbin were both released Thursday on a combined $9,000 bond. 

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
