Report: Gun, about 1,800 pills found at probationer's apartment
Collier County sheriff's deputies say they seized about 1,800 prescription pills and a revolver Friday from the East Naples apartment of a state probationer, whose two children were living in the home.
Joseph Dominick Vergo, 29, of the 9400 block of Marino Circle, East Naples, was arrested by Collier deputies following a tip from state probation officers, an arrest report said.
While searching Vergo's home, a man at the apartment tried carrying a black safe to his truck at Vergo's direction, deputies said. When deputies found a key and opened the safe, they found 777 Valium, 522 Percocet, 276 Xanax and 141 Alprazolam tablets, as well as about five grams of marijuana, the report said. Deputies said they also found a revolver, ammunition, 61 methadone tablets and 26 oxymorphone tablets.
When questioned by deputies, Vergo said the pills belonged to his wife, the report said.
Officials from the Department of Children and Families took custody of Vergo's two children. They were placed with a grandparent, the report said.
Vergo faces 10 drug-related counts, including three for opium trafficking and five for opium possession. He remained in jail Sunday afternoon on $357,000 bond.
Records weren't available regarding Vergo's reason for being on probation.
