MARION COUNTY, Fla. -

A man and woman were arrested after deputies say they found drugs, a loaded weapon, and other items while conducting a walkthrough.

Jessica Price, 37, and Eric Westman, 37, both of Ocala, were arrested at their residence along NE 37th Street on Sunday.

According to officials, Price wouldn't let the deputy search a room after smelling marijuana coming from it. The deputy arrested her on a charge of resisting an officer.

Westman will face six counts of drug possession, display of a firearm during a felony, and five counts of drug trafficking according to deputies.
