LAKELAND, Fla — A captain for Polk County Fire Rescue was arrested Wednesday night on charges of possession of methamphetamines and possession of paraphernalia at his Lakeland home.

Detectives were following up on a tip that drugs were possibly being sold out of Kevin Giliam's home.

When undercover officers arrived at the home, they met with Giliam, 48, and conducted a search. Detectives found a glass pipe containing meth in Giliam's master bedroom.

Giliam was booked into the Polk County Jail, and released after posting $1,500 bail.

He resigned from his position on Thursday, a spokesperson for the fire department said. Giliam had been with the department since 1993.
