A teenage boy was arrested Tuesday after deputies searched a home and found drugs and a loaded gun.
Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies searched a home in the 2600 block of Sixth Street East on Tuesday afternoon. A 15-year-old boy was at the home when the search warrant was executed around 1:19 p.m. and was arrested, according to the sheriff’s office.
