Pensacola Police Bust Century Man On Cocaine Charge

December 6, 2011

The Pensacola Police Department arrested a 30-year old Century man after they discovered cocaine in his possession during a traffic stop.

Joseph Smith of Hudson Hill Road in Century was charged with cocaine possession and providing a false name to law enforcement.

Smith was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over by Pensacola Police for running a stop sign while exiting the Pensacola Village apartment complex onto Fairfield Drive. According to police, he had no identification and provided a false name.

Officers found seven rocks of crack cocaine in a cigarette package in Smith’s possession. After he admitted his real name to officers, they also discovered that he had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court back in October on charges of driving with a suspended license and no valid driver’s license.

    REGARDING:
    “make be sick to think – - – And for all the inmates who can not read and write Im sure programs are in all prisons that can help them learn to read and write right! No i dont think so because schools can not even help children with learning disabilities they just throw them in with gen classes now and hope for the best “

    Make be sick? I see your point.

    Nonetheless, they ARE still trying to help those with learning disabilities; they just believe they will learn better if they aren’t segregated from the general student population, especially in the things which their learning disabilities aren’t a factor. Where LD is a factor, they have specialists trying to help them overcome it.

    They shouldn’t all be locked away in a portable somewhere just so the others don’t have to look at them. It retards learning.

    David for gratitude

    Yes, they would, but why would they have business with them?

    I’m assuming we weren’t talking about selling them pizzas or something like that. I assume there was a legitimate reason, just can’t think what it would be (lack of imagination on my part, but, as Popeye says, “I am what I am.”).

    David, someone who lives in Molino might call PPD if they had business with them.

    Just curious, why would anyone in Molino call the Pensacola Police Department?

    @Everett

    This may be his first felony but he had a suspended license, lied to
    the police and he had a warrent out for him, and now this bust.
    This guy has no regard for the law or anyone else, I would think
    the judge would take all of that in to account and send him a stronger
    message than a slap on the wrist, he doesn’t even care that he
    has no license and that means no insurance AGAIN. GRRRRRR

    Take a hard look at this one Judge.

    Good job to the PPD. This is his first big offense so probably 12 months probation and maybe some community service.

    PPD has always been good to me even tho I live in Molino.
    I called them a few weeks back and the desk officer was the nicest,
    kindest LEO officer I ever talk to, so I called back and told someone
    else how helpful and wonderful he was.

    It should always be that way when LEO’S pick up the phone.
    Just another case of Good Officers Doing a Good JOB.
    Thanks to the PPD. Sincerely!
