Cantonment Woman Facing Multiple Drug Charges After Window Tint Violation Traffic Stop

January 12, 2020

A Cantonment woman is facing multiple felony drug charges after a traffic stop for illegal window tint.

Angel Diane Maroone, 22, was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (Xanax), possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine, introduction of contraband into a detention facility, possession of drug paraphernalia and knowingly driving with a suspended license.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop in the area of Davis Highway and University Parkway on a vehicle that appeared to have window tint that was too dark.

The deputy tested the window tint, which allowed on a 12% light transmission, darker than the legal limit of 28%.  The deputy observed Maroone to be nervous, smoking two cigarettes in six minutes.

Inside the vehicle, the deputy located a pink bag containing a small amount of methamphetamine, a “very large chunk” of methamphetamine, and a clear plastic bag containing Xanax. When Maroone was booked into the Escambia County Jail, corrections staff found a a plastic bag containing cocaine inside a body cavity, according to an arrest report.

Maroone remained in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $10,000.

    Actually Old Man,….

    The tint on the Sheriff’s Office tahoes is 33% and the
    few Law Enforcement vehicles that have darker tint than the legal limit are exempt from the requirements and specifically allowed by Florida State Statute 316.29545(2).

    All the while half of those Tahoe’s they drive around have 5% tint on them, Limo tint. I guess it’s ok for them to break the law.

    Trying to figure out what constitutional law was broken… she was on a public road, possibly a threat to other drivers, too dark window tint can diminish her view of her surroundings. And a suspended license. .

    Normally, I am a fan of law enforcement but not at the detriment of the Constitution.
    I acknowledge that I was not on scene and I make this comment only based on the information in the article.
    It does not seem like the officer had probable cause (PC) to search the vehicle. Smoking two cigarettes in six minutes means nothing. Acting nervous, is not PC.

    Maybe she ended up giving consent, maybe the K9 came out a gave it a sniff. But I don’t see PC based on the article.

    She is just a beautiful young lady, so sad she made such a regretful decision, I pray she will get through this with much needed support ..

    It never pays to advertise.

    Lucky that coke bag did not rupture or leak cocaine into that body cavity. I recently read of a woman dying from such circumstance, around ,5 ounce.

    Hopefully and through prayers,she will be able to get clean in jail and find a new life when she gets out.

    Talking about tinted windows. Do they make tints for windshields similar to eye glasses that would adjust automatically from light to dark? Driving East or West during sunrise/sunset is often difficult if you can’t see the road clearly.

    She is so young. Hope it was worth it.
