Jason Daniel Kirk Gets 25 Years In Prison For Half Pound Of Pills

December 31, 2010

A Flomaton man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after he was arrested in Florida with just under a half pound of illegal pills allegedly stolen from an Alabama pharmacy.

kirkjason.jpgJason Daniel Kirk, 30, pleaded guilty to three counts of trafficking in illegal drugs and three counts of possession of controlled substances. His sentence includes a 25 year minimum for on two of the trafficking counts.

The case stemmed from a burglary that Kirk was alleged to have committed in March, 2010 at Fred’s in East Brewton where numerous bottles of pills were taken.

The Escambia County (Fla.) Narcotics Unit received information that the defendant was selling these pills out of his room at the Value Place Hotel on Scenic Highway. A search warrant was executed, and deputies found a lock box that contained quantities of Xanax, oxycodone, methadone, morphine and hydrocodone, according to the arrest report. One bag of hydrocodone weighed in excess of 200 grams (0.44 pounds), the arrest report stated.

The key to the safe was located on Kirk’s person. Deputies also located over $600 in cash and notebooks containing sales and inventory figures for the pills . Kirk admitted to ownership of the narcotics, and that they were taken from the Fred’s, according to the State Attorney’s Office.

Jason Kirk’s brother, Matthew Kirk of Brewton, was indicted by an Escambia County (Ala.) Grand Jury on two counts of third degree burglary, one court of second degree theft of property in connection with the  the pharmacy burglary.  Matthew Kirk was the only police officer on duty in the small Alabama town at the time the burglary occurred. Matthew Kirk  has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trail.

    I hope you’re just joking around about the spelling of “stupid” and all of the crimes that you confessed to.

    Elmer Question?

    What do you do for a living now?

    These kids today are just stupied, 25 years for pills.
    Back in my day I got 4 years for a bank heist, netted 16K spent half, hid the rest. Got caught two years after the heist. Fed time is easer then state time.

    Now that being said. 20 years for robing a liquor store vs. 4 years for a bank job, Liquor stores have maybe $200.00 on a good night and bank’s. well thats where they keep the money

    Why no pic of the “LEO”?

  14. WOW on December 31st, 2010 1:40 am

    I would be willing to bet that he will get less than 3 years for the burglary in Alabama.
    Tough laws, tough judges, and tough law enforcement make for a tough sentence. I think he picked the wrong Escambia to visit!
