Cantonment Man Facing Drug, Weapons Charges After Traffic Stop

September 30, 2021

A traffic stop led to the arrest of a Cantonment man on drug and weapons charges.

David Ross Holmquist, 49, was charged with possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, felony possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy stopped Holmquist’s Pontiac sedan on Innerarity Point Road after he allegedly failed to come to a complete stop at a traffic light.

The deputy discovered that his driver’s license was suspended indefinitely for financial obligations. Nine 380-caliber rounds and ten 22-caliber rounds were found in the vehicle’s center console, according to an arrest report. Deputies also reported finding a baggie of alleged methamphetamine in the vehicle’s trunk and another bag of alleged crystal meth was found in his pants pocket, the report continues.

According to the ECSO, Holmquist was convicted of felony unarmed burglary in 1991.

He was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $13,000 bond

    Your math is on point! However, your punctuation is beyond grammar school. Try adding a period, comma and capitalized letters.

    I’m surprised it’s not higher for someone already out on bond for 2 of the same charges.

    Bail bonds are typically 10% of the bond amount, so the amount was likely $1300.

    Released from jail paying $130.00. Judge will give a little slap on his hands & let him out on the streets again for the deputies to arrest him again. Mental Issues, No, just a career criminal driving on the streets.
