Asleep At The Wheel: Cantonment Man Arrested On Multiple Drug Charges

November 14, 2018

A Cantonment man that allegedly fell asleep at the wheel while waiting for a redlight to changeĀ  is facing multiple drug charges.

Cameron Edmond Edgecumbe, 25, was charged with felony possession of a control substance without a prescription, felony dealing in stolen property, marijuana possession and knowingly driving with a suspended license.

Deputies found Edgecumbe asleep at the wheel of his still-running vehicle onĀ  Muscogee Road at Highway 29, according to an arrest report. After deputies managed to wake him up, they reported a strong smell of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.

On Edgecumbe’s person, deputies found 28 Alprazolam tables, just over 20 grams of marijuana, an empty Hydrocodone pill bottle, a digital scale, two Visa credits cards in the name of a female, and $1,685 in cash. The credit cards were allegedly stolen during a recent burglary.

He told deputies that he was waiting at the light and it would not change, and he must have fallen asleep, the arrest report states.

Edgecume was released from the Escambia County Jail on an $8,000 bond.

    No bail, take his driver’s license away and impound his car. That is the only way that he will not be on the streets, selling drugs and endangering innocent drivers who abide the law. How hard is that to do Judge?

    Shouldn’t there be a DUI charge also?

  12. tg on November 14th, 2018 8:57 am

    I kept blowing the horn but he wouldn’t go.

    So he was released? Now he can kill someone while driving high. He can go and steal more credit cards and drive without a license. Thats just great.

    Thank goodness they found him before he killed an innocent soul or himself.

    Geez looking at that ring on forehead it appears he was asleep for a while.

    The thief and drug head sure had a low bond. Did he post bond with the stolen money. Law enforcement did an excellent job in getting this guy off the street. They probably saved someone’s life.

    I sure hope he still has on his Halloween costume!! That is scary.
