Man Facing Multiple Drug Charges After State Line Traffic Stop

March 22, 2013

A Flomaton man is facing multiple drug charges after being stopped by Florida deputies just a few feet inside Alabama.

Caleb Eli Turk, 20, was arrested on outstanding warrants stemming from the December 5 incident. He was charged with marijuana possession, cocaine possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession with the intent to distribute.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy initiated a traffic stop due to an expired tag on Turk’s vehicle in Florida on Tulip Road at Highway 4. Turk came to a stop on Tulip Road, just a few feet inside the Alabama line according to GPS coordinates, an arrest report states.  The state line on Tulip Road is not marked by any sort of signage. The Flomaton Police Department was called to assist.

Inside Turk’s vehicle, officers reported finding seven individual bags of marijuana, a bag containing cocaine, a marijuana cigarette and other illicit items.

Because Turk came to a stop in Alabama, warrants for Turk’s arrest were prepared in Florida.

He was also issued traffic citations for driving with a suspended license and an expired tag.

    Once again, poor decisions have lasting and rather painful consequences.
