Century Drug Dealer Caught Flushing Narcotics Down The Toilet Sentenced To Prison

August 24, 2019

A Century man caught trying to flush meth down the toilet is headed to prison.

Sim Brown III entered a plea to one count of trafficking in methamphetamine (200 grams or more), three counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, tampering with evidence, possession of firearm by convicted felon and possession of a short-barreled shotgun. Circuit Judge Jan Shackelford sentenced Brown to 15 years in state prison. There is no parole; he will serve every day of the sentence.

The charges stemmed from an investigation conducted by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit into Brown selling narcotics in Century.

On March 28, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team executed a search warrant at Brown’s residence in the 400 block of Bonwell Street at Salter’s Lake Road. Brown was found in the bathroom attempting to flush a large amount of narcotics down the toilet.

Inside the home, deputies located 901 grams of methamphetamine, 400 grams of marijuana, 24 grams of cocaine, and 260 grams of synthetic cannabinoids. An illegal sawed-off shotgun, handgun and ammunition were also recovered inside the mobile home.

Brown has one prior felony conviction.

    @Don… You’re living in a La-La land “trumped” up by the NRA, politicians and right wing nut case journalists that want nothing more than your vote and who are willing to make you scared to sleep with the lights off to get it. If that’s your preference, so be it. The truth is you’d be hard pressed to find a credible (not something you’ve found on The Onion’s website) piece of legislation that comes anywhere close to proposing confiscation of weapons from law abiding citizens.

    @ Big Facts,

    That is a LIE,

    If you watched the news you would know that most – if not ALL DemoRATS are running on Gun Control (confiscation).

    @More Time… What proof do you have that “the Democrats want to take your right to own what the criminals use”? Please stop trying to turn everything into a political rant. Other than suggesting we try and implement better laws to stop the mentally ill from possessing weapons, I haven’t heard any politician (Dem or Rep) suggest we take weapons from law abiding citizens. All the fear mongering is tired and played out.

    This is the way to clean up Century! I can only wish that this is the beginning of really cleaning up Century. I, for one, am tired of seeing the lives of our local residents, both young and old, being destroyed by these monsters.

    Here is the problem. Convicted felon in the possession of a fire arm. The only reason he had these weapons was to kill. How many lives has he destroyed by his actions. Here was an opportunity for the courts to give him the max sentence of life for a habitual offender. There is no justice for the victims of his crimes. Criminals always seem to have access to guns and the Democrats want to take your right to own what the criminals use.

    How many lives were “flushed down the toilet” by the poison sold by this viper. The damage he caused will last far longer than 15 years. Worthless hunk of excrement.

    There is no parole; he will serve every day of the sentence. -This is good news, shorten his criminal life by 15 yrs.
