FHP Makes Drug Arrest After Traffic Stop

August 8, 2017

An Escambia County man was arrested on multiple drug charges after a Florida Highway Patrol traffic stop.

A trooper was working  speed enforcement on Michigan Avenue when a 2000 black Jeep Cherokee driven by Antonio Holt was stopped for a traffic violation.  K-9 “Tango” from the Escambia County Sheriffs Office was called to the scene and gave a  positive indication to the presence of narcotics. A probable cause search of the vehicle was  conducted.

Narcotics located included 9.3 grams of a crystal substance that tested positive for  meth, 12 Xanax bars, 51.5 hydrocodone tabs, a scale, 15 grams of marijuana, nine ecstasy tablets, one clear bag of a white powder substance that tested positive for cocaine, and two  clear bags that contained a gray powder substance that will be tested by the FDLE lab and $484 in cash.

Holt was charged with trafficking prescription drugs, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and three counts of possession of new legend drug.

    Sounds like the right prescription Bob C. I’ll provide the water to wash it all down. Good job LEO’s and give K-9 Tango a good treat!

    Sounds like this was for ‘personal use’ and only fair thing to do would be to make sure he ingests all of this at the same time.
