April 1, 2023

A Century felon was convicted this week on drugs and weapons charges.

Kendrick Jamar Washington was found guilty by an Escambia County jury of trafficking in cocaine,  carrying an unlicensed concealed firearm and carrying a concealed firearm while trafficking in cocaine. He will be sentenced in late May.

On June 24, 2022, Washington allegedly pointed “an assault rifle” at his sister and threatened to kill her, according to an arrest report. She headed to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Century Precinct to file a report.

During the investigation, deputies were alerted of an armed disturbance on Ashford Alley off Jefferson Avenue and detained Washington. A .38 Special revolver and a Del-Ton rifle were recovered from Washington, along with a .223 round in the chamber, 13 rounds in the magazine of the rifle and five rounds in his pocket, according to an arrest report.

Deputies also found a plastic bag with 91.7 grams of powdered cocaine, 18.9 grams of crack cocaine and 1.6 grams of marijuana, according to court documents. A total of $4,642 in currency was found on Washington’s person, deputies said.

Charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana against Washington were dropped.

    That call it an “assault rifle” to make it seem like scary military weapon, which it is NOT!

    Wouldn’t any weapon be an assault weapon if you used it to assault someone?

    Dude was a traviling store for druggies.
    Great to have ECSO Century Precinct so a quick response was done to get him into custody and off our streets.
    Would be a real deterrent if we had similar punishments to those in more severe nations. Drugs are a one-time crime.
    Unsure what an “Assault Rifle” is..??
    Wishing the guy a long time of citizen tax paid for vacation in prison.
