FWC Law Enforcement Report

October 19, 2017

The Florida FWC Division of Law Enforcement reported the following activity during the weekly period ending October 12 in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.


No report was submitted from Escambia County this week.


Officer Hutchinson was patrolling the Blackwater State Forest when he observed a couple of vehicles pulled over on the side of a forest road. He stopped to check on the subjects inside of the vehicles. While speaking with them, he could smell the strong odor of cannabis coming from the vehicles. After questioning the two drivers, he discovered cannabis inside both vehicles. Both men were issued notices to appear for possession of not more than 20 grams of cannabis.

This report represents some events the FWC handled over the past week; however, it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. Information provided by FWC.

    For Escambia County, October 23. But it looks like the class is in Milton. If you follow the link for Santa Rosa, you’ll see there’s one October 25 in Jay.
