Century Man Facing Multiple Drug Charges, Sexual Offender Violation

January 14, 2019

A broken windshield landed a Century man behind bars on multiple drug charges and a sexual offender violation.

While patrolling Front Street, an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy reported seeing 50-year old Daryl Lamar Brown pass in a red Ford Focus with a windshield that was cracked in driver’s view. The deputy made contact with brown at Camellia Gardens Apartments. The deputy reported a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

A records check indicated that Brown had an outstanding warrant for a sexual offender registration violation and had a suspended driver’s license. Brown was taken into custody.

A search of his vehicle revealed a black nylon bag that contained four plastic bags that contained marijuana and one that contained spice. One of the plastic bags that contained marijuana had the marijuana individually packed into 15 small baggies for sale, and one plastic bag contained nine individual bags of spice ready for sale, according to an arrest report.

Brown was charged with possession of marijuana more than 20 grams with the intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance (spice) with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, knowingly driving with a suspended license and failing to register as a sex offender.

Brown was convicted of lewd or lascivious exhibition in the presence of an elderly or disabled person in 2014, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement offender registry.

Brown remained in the Escambia County Jail Monday with bond set at $57,000.

    Thanks for clearing that up Thinker. Now read this. I have no problem with an even higher bond for the drug dealing sex offender. But the $25000 for a drunk driving killer is where the problem is.

    Iy’s a shame that some Americans in this country can walk into a store and buy as much Marijuana as they want and some Americans still go to prison for the same thing

    This is not just possession charges. Marijuana with intent to sell is not just a misdemeanor. Possession of spice is a felony as well. Along with his sex offender violations. That’s three felonies, so that’s why his bond is set that high.

    A drunk killing two people has no right to be out on bond. He was DUI, he killed two people. That is a fact. No grey area.

    The sexual offender charge carried a $50,000 bond. Nobody is getting a $25,000 bond for simple misdemeanor marijuana possession.

    Someone commented in another story about how drug possession arrests got higher bails than killing people. I thought, nah that couldn’t be; however, that person was right. $25,000 for a double DUI vehicle homicide over the weekend and here Brown gets $57,000 bond for marijuana. SMH.

    Marijuana, spice, and violations get $57000 bond. Drive drunk and kill 2 people and get $25000 bond. What?
