3 people arrested after warrant served in Jacksonville Beach

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. — Guns, drugs, and a bulletproof vest are just a few of the things collected after three people were arrested in Jacksonville Beach.

“Around 5 or 5:30 in the morning you could hear a megaphone going off, a police officer speaking through it, I guess, trying to control the situation,” a neighbor said.

Less than 1,000 feet away from Jacksonville Beach Elementary school, police served a warrant at a home on Fourth Avenue South, arresting Typhil Currelly, Bernita Currelly and Katelyn Arnold.

According to the Jacksonville Beach Police Department, Bernita Currelly was charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to Sell/MFG/Deliver within 1000 feet of a school, possess not more than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Typhil Currelly was charged with eight counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, dealing in stolen property, possession of controlled substance, two counts of possession of cocaine, three counts of possession of controlled substance without a prescription, possession of bulletproof vest while committing certain offenses, possess not more than 20 grams marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

Arnold was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal conspiracy.

Officers confiscated several different guns, including a short-barreled rifle, drugs, a bulletproof vest and paraphernalia. A neighbor who spoke to Action News Jax anonymously said they’ve been living in the area for a few years and said it’s safe.

“I’ve never felt like my life was (in) danger. We walk to the beach down here. We ride our bikes and I’ve always felt really safe,” she said.

Action News Jax went to the home where it happened for a comment. Someone was there but didn’t say anything and went inside.

The neighbor we spoke to said she’s never even heard gunshots in the area.

“Nothing I’ve ever expected of drugs or illegal weapons or anything like that,” she said.

All three are currently being held at the Duval County Jail.
