ECSO: Two Arrested With Drugs And Counterfeit Cash

October 8, 2018

Two North Escambia men were arrested for allegedly possessing drugs and counterfeit cash.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a gas station on Michigan Avenue where they found Travis Winters asleep in the driver’s seat of a pickup truck at the gas pumps.

After deputies removed passenger Hunter Manning from the vehicle, the report states deputies located a syringe containing heroin in his pocked and a straw containing methamphetamine, according to an arrest report. Deputies also found marijuana and heroin inside a cigarette pack that they saw Manning reach for inside the vehicle.

The arrest report states Winters had been sitting on a bag containing counterfeit $100 bills and methamphetamine. They also reported finding a counterfeited $100 bill in his pocket.

Manning, age 26 of Cantonment, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, three counts of possession of heroin, possession of marijuana, three counts possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting an officer and possession of counterfeit money. He was released on $13,500 bond.

Winters, age 21 of McDavid, was charged with possession of a methamphetamine and possession of counterfeit money. He remained jailed Monday without bond.

    I wouldn’t want a drug addict watching my back in a war zone. They can’t even take care of themselves.

    It could not “happen” to me because I would never do drugs to begin with.

    Addiction is real and Satan is the dealer on October 8th, 2018 9:56 pm
    You can shout, “Addiction is a sickness”, all you want, it isn’t. Addiction is a lack of moral character!

    @justathought – these two are ineligible for military service.

    Addiction is a sickness and it could happen to anyone some one you love. These are kids. Someone’s babies, I pray that God will release the stronghold Satan has over all of the people with addictions. I Don’t think anyone reading this can cast a stone, pray for these addicts Satan has a new drug n he’s killing someone’s mother daughter father and son right now.

    @ret mil, right on.

    I am retired from the Army. That military time over jail time wasn’t a good idea then and certainly not now. When I was drafted in 1969 there were two hand cuffed prisoners with escorts awaiting induction. After the oath was given, they were uncuffed and we all went to Ft Benning for Basic. They were constantly in trouble with the Sr. Drill and eventually were kicked out of the Army, and did not finish basic. I would not have trusted them to be watching my back in Nam or anywhere else. Not a good idea at all, and besides, the Army won’t take this type of person with a record anymore.

    As retired military, I know I don’t want these two morons in my military.

    Currently serving in the army. In 5 years I’ve had 4 serious cases of drug abuse that soldiers have committed. And that’s just the ones who were caught. Joking the military won’t fix this problem. If people want drugs, they will get it. It’s sad tho. I went to high school with hunter. Never thought he’d slip into drug use

    Nod, isn’t Prison a place to retrain and rehabilitate people? Aren’t we the ones paying for that also? And we get nothing in return for that. At least if you give them military, they will be forced to learn something and perform duties which can build good character in even the worst of people.

    People in the military do drugs too…

  14. nod on October 8th, 2018 12:53 pm

    First we do not need to fill the military with these type of young men. The military is full of professionals now days not losers. Our job is to protect America not retrain dopers and losers.
    Second, it is unfortunate that these men put so much time into screwing up.they need to put that effort into getting a job and contributing to the economy and their own lives. I truly hope the can reform and become good young men.

    We need to bring back the option of military over jail time. Serve your country instead of filling up jails.

    Illegal drugs, again, ruin the lives if 2 young men.
