November 21, 2017

A Century man has been  arrested after allegedly receiving a UPS package full of marijana

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit conducted the controlled delivery of a UPS package to a home on Pine Forest Road as surveillance units watched. A woman opened the door and moved the package indoors. Kendrick Jamar Washington arrived, entered the home, and then placed the package in the backseat of his vehicle, according to an arrest report

As he drove away, deputies immediately stopped him for a seat belt violation. In addition to the package, which contained about seven pounds of marijuana, deputes reported finding plastic baggies containing marijuana, Ecstasy pills and $1,432.

The woman who moved the package inside the residence  told deputies that she was on the phone with Washington at the time of the delivery and he told her to move the package that he would soon pick up.

Washington was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to sell, manufacture or deliver. He was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

    I’m not sure how you could evict HIM, but remember many — possibly most — follow very strange gods. Do you really want the followers of those other gods in charge of enforcing their rules?

    David for not being led by the blind

    What a relief that the billboards are preventing crime from happening and are keeping us safe.

    That’s right let’s spend all the time money and efford on this one package. While murderers rapist child porn embezzlers and such get away with whatever they want to do. Someone suspected of drugs gets a million dollar bond even sometimes with no evidence. While a school teacher. lawyer or someone with a name r associated with a place r person gets a slap on the wrist. What has this country come to. U right guns don’t kill people do. People r the evil ones here who develop really bad habits. The devil is working overtime in the world. We need new laws judges law officers goverment all areas. Let’s put GOD back into this world 1st and foremost. Then things can get back on the right track.

    Sounds reasonable as a relative risk. Rapists are dangerous to all. Drug dealers are mostly only dangerous to fools.

    David for reasonable people

    This guy gets away with $10,000 dollars bail after being charged with selling pot and selling methamphetamine, while the guy impersonating an officer gets a bail of $450,000, go figure.

    Not the ideal business model, and I agree with Becky.

    Pot is no more harmful than alcohol or tobacco, yet the Alcohol lobby is spending big money at the state and federal levels, to keep pot in an illegal class*. It is time to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana. Let all the LE. agencies get a cut of the funds, as there will be plenty to spread around.

    Let the people decide, national referendum. Let even the illegals vote.

    Actually 90% of addicts “gateway” substance was mothers milk!! It’s not the pot thats really the gateway drug as y’all call it, it’s the wrong people associated with it. That’s what does make it easier to be introduced to other substances. I think most people would be surprised of what grows naturally around here that can be consumed in some manner that put most of the crap they sell and consider “drugs” around here to shame. If the just DECRIMINALIZE pot, it would take the allure away, NOBODY would be making the God-almighty dollar off of it and in short order it would not be a “problem”. Just another way to look at. I’m not saying what this fellow did was right.

    David Davis “Gateway Drug” really? Well a high percent of pot users smoked Cigarettes first so does that make cigarettes the first “Gateway Drug”? Oh and they ate candy and drank sodas those to must be “Gateway Drugs”! Oh and the had sugar and meat and vegetables so those to must be “Gateway Drugs”! That’s as stupid as saying guns kill people when we know for a fact people kill people! I’ve never seen a gun grow legs and chase someone down ang kill them!

    Century man, lawyer-up. You are not responsible for anything that you receive in the mail.

  11. David Davis on November 21st, 2017 3:58 pm

    Medical pot is different than this pot. Marijuana is a “gateway” drug which leads to other drugs where the user become addicted and seeks a higher high. Medical has low THC and the user doesn’t experience the same euphoric effects as the street level does, there isn’t a comparison. If you attempted to legalize it across the board, you will still need government and law enforcement to exercise proper growth, regulation and collection of taxes. There will be those who circumvent the system like moonshine and avoid the taxing, licensing and regulation so law enforcement will always be involved.

    hmmmm. what can brown do for you?

    Was it another Black Friday Special from Amazon? They sent one a couple of weeks ago.

    When will this idiotic war on pot end. The big liquor lobby fought tooth and nail to challenge medical pot implementation which the people overwhelming supported at the polls. Now we have an entire section of LEO for fifty years chasing prohibition. Talk to a cancer patient who is taking medical pot. It works. Crime is down and revenues are up in those states which have legalized pot, but you can bet the taxpayers will pay a million dollars for room and board for this dope and all the other mopes, but the worst part……their were a large number of leo focusing on this bust when unsolved murders and violent crime dot the landscape. We need new priorities, and we need them now. Prohibition is destroying America with gang violence and protection of turf. Enough.

    Bob C: Would have been charged with theft and trespassing. If they entered into the curtilage of the residence to commit the theft, it could have been upgraded to burglary. Since someone was within the residence, it would have been an “occupied burglary” of a residence. I suppose if you got the postal service involved, maybe mail theft.

    >>Wonder how that would have played out if someone not associated with the home or package happened to see it on the porch and decided to steal it?

    “The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit conducted the CONTROLLED delivery of a UPS package **as surveillance units watched.**”

    Think undercover sting, not just the UPS man showing up. They watched every move presumably.

    Wonder how that would have played out if someone not associated with the home or package happened to see it on the porch and decided to steal it?
    We hear and see on media about UPS and FedEx deliveries being stolen from front porches all the time.
    So what would the charge be for the package thief?
    Couldn’t really charge them with trafficking or dealing drugs if they thought the box had a video game inside.

    I think we have seen that mug before.
