Cantonment Woman Charged With Evidence Tampering, Littering For Tossing Out Pot At Starbucks

March 18, 2023

A Cantonment woman was charged with evidence tampering and cited for littering after she allegedly tossed pot out in front of a local Starbucks.

Savannah Boudreaux was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and felony tampering with evidence. She was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $6,000 bond.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed Boudreaux traveling on Highway 297A at 53 mph in a 45 mph zone. He initiated a traffic stop as the vehicle traveled west on Nine Mile Road through the Pine Forest Road intersection. While turning westbound, the deputy witnessed something being thrown out of the window, according to an arrest report.

The vehicle, occupied solely by Boudreaux, came to a stop just past Starbucks. The deputy walked back and located multiple marijuana buds in front of Starbucks, according to the report. Deputies also reported finding a rolled marijuana blunt inside the vehicle.

    Another “hardened criminal” off the streets, good job ECSO!

    Hmmm wonder what would have happened if she would have simply comply and not threw anything out the window? But let’s blame her wrong doing on the cop, so much more easier.

    Also, I’m pretty sure she will get a little probation and since she isn’t already a convicted felon, a judge will withhold adjudication of guilt if she completes probation successfully… that way her future isn’t ruined and she won’t be labeled a convicted felon..
    I’ve never seen a judge not do this on such a petty felony crime for a first time offender.

    Keep your head up, young lady. You ditched some pot, because you didn’t want to get caught with it. No big deal. It’s pot. A good lawyer can get you out of that felony charge.
    As far as the “speeding”, selective enforcement is a nearly universal concept.

    what, no ticket for wasting good weed? You could have at least ate it dear! :D

    Overreach in the Land of Dixie.

    @attitude “Some of her charges may have been due to her having a bad attitude… he can write you for just about anything he can find.” Don’t you think this is a huge problem? The cops or judges don’t like you and here you go to jail. Shouldn’t it be the law that sends you there, not cop’s emotions? The scariest part is that than can write you up for anything – and they will find something if they want you in jail. Like Stalin used to say: “Give me a man and I’ll find a law to send him to prison”. This is not a rule of law, this a rule of those who implement it.

    @nikki first and foremost it’s people in this county that break laws all kids aren’t the same and some do stupid things and get caught !!! Cop’s DONT pull people over because they are driving a sports car they do it because the person driving the sports car is driving stupid or doing something wrong also officers do go faster than the traffic sometimes but I promise you the reason is something you Don’t know about unless you are a officer which I know you are not !!! Remember they are here to help they are trained YOU ARE NOT !!!!!!

    I see cops almost everytime I go to town ignoring the speeding people hauling butt and they themselves speeding for no apparent reason. Now if they see me in a sports car I’m most definitely going to get a ticket just because it’s a sports car. Yes there are real criminals out there but all the speeding and the overpopulation is dangerous in its own way. We need our kids to stick around all ages out there driving crazy. Stay blessed everyone.

    might have to figure this felony out downtown ?

  11. attitude on March 18th, 2023 5:19 pm

    Some of her charges may have been due to her having a bad attitude towards the cop for stopping her. Play nice and you might get to slide, be a turd and he can write you for just about anything he can find. It’d be interesting to see video if the stop.

    And the woman that caused 2 wrecks in a single day, and almost killed a 15-years old girl (she was in a critical condition) when she smashed into another car got nothing but a ticket. How much litter did her wrecks leave on the roads?

    Welcome to Escambia County

  14. More to the story? on March 18th, 2023 1:33 pm

    Deputy likely did her a favor and reduced speeding citation and possibly other citations. Nobody gets pulled over for driving 53 on 297a. I’ve tried to drive 50 and even the deputies will run you over.

  15. RaD on March 18th, 2023 10:19 am

    The sad part is, she could of just pulled over, got a ticket for speeding and if they bothered to search, another for marijuana possession less than 20 grams and had the weed confiscated, and been on her way.

    I think the citing for littering was a little over the top.

  16. Willis on March 18th, 2023 9:51 am

    Littering charge must have been the reason for the higher than normal bail.

  17. Bill T on March 18th, 2023 9:47 am

    Instead of trying to hide something ya should take and present it and own it !!! You would not have went to jail if you did instead you had to act like a criminal and now you are treated like one !!! You ain’t very smart

  18. Jim on March 18th, 2023 9:36 am

    8 MPH over the speed limit? I know – the speed limit is the speed limit – but I’m thinking the deputy needed an excuse to stop that car. There may be more to this story. At any rate, I hope this young lady learns a lesson.

  19. Susie on March 18th, 2023 9:13 am

    Good Lord, aren’t there real crimes to be investigated out there? I am an advocate for Law Enforcement and God bless them all but this must have been a Cadet. You can sit at Nine Mile and Pine Forest and see cars speeding like bats out of h*ll all day long. 53 is nothing compared others.

  20. Bama89 on March 18th, 2023 8:50 am

    Uh oh, if she’s littering by throwing grass on the ground, looks like I need to figure out a different way to cut my lawn to abide by this officers laws.

  21. Plant based on March 18th, 2023 8:47 am

    I’m curious, I completely understand the tampering with evidence charge, but how do you charge someone for littering when they’ve thrown plant vegetation (which is what marijuana is) onto the ground??
    Lol guess she shoulda just had her a prescription for Xanax like everyone else around here.

  22. Kenny on March 18th, 2023 2:38 am

    Wow that’s a stretch sir officer Paul Blart… Trumped up FELONY “tampering with evidence” charge… That’s seems awfully petty from the outside looking in… Sure weed is still illegal in Florida for recreational use so charge her with the misdemeanor possession if you so choose… You could have just ruined many opportunities for that young person when a simple possession charge would suffice… Hopefully the judge has a less aggression towards a simple non violent crime…

  23. Littering?? on March 18th, 2023 2:29 am

    I find this sad and her bond is just really high maybe she was tool How can people not recall seeing people throw paper or cigarettes out the window.I hope she fights it little girl “you drank expresso at the Starbucks and had to much caffeine.” Made you paranoid and jittery. Ill take weed bud over cigarette butts any day. She didn’t get a DUI Florida got to catch up with legalization recreational too.Just a stupid legal case clogging up this young ladies life and the justice system.This officer overreaching no field sobriety test for suspicion probable cause?????
