Flomaton Man Arrested In Century On Meth Charge

June 30, 2016

A Flomaton man was jailed after deputies say he was caught trying to hide meth down his pants.

Escambia County deputies were patrolling at the dead end of  Brooms Road outside Century when they observed two males turn and run when they noticed law enforcement. Both men were detained and placed in back of different patrol vehicles.

While 27-year old Travis Lee Salter was being questioned, a deputy reported that he saw three baggies of an unknown substance had been placed on the center floor area of his patrol vehicle, along with  a watch and over the counter sleep medications.

As Salter was being removed from the deputy’s Tahoe, he allegedly slid down in the floor area where he grabbed a baggie while handcuffed and slid it into the back of his pants. The bag was later determined to contain methamphetamine, according to an arrest report.

Salter was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine. He remained in the Escambia County Jail Thursday morning with bond set $5,000.

The second man involved in the incident was not immediately charged with any crime.

    If he’s messing around with Meth, his handsome youthful appearance will be irreparably scarred before too long. I hope he learns his lesson and puts the dope away, for good.

    Praying that this young man can finally turn his life around, and get on the right track before something worse than an arrest happens to him.
