Florida Highway Patrol troopers found meth, spice, cocaine and more during a traffic stop Saturday morning on Highway 29.

Troopers said a white Cadillac sedan was stopped with a green traffic signal in the outside lane of Highway 29 at I-10. Traffic began to travel around the stopped vehicle at which time the trooper approached the vehicle and observed signs of criminal activity, according to a FHP report.

The trooper made contact with the driver, 33-year old Travis Montes Mitchell. The FHP said he began to resist and attempted to put the vehicle in drive. He was taken into custody with the assistance of backup law enforcement. A search of the vehicle found 5.2 grams of rock or powder cocaine, 56.3 grams of methamphetamine, 60 assorted pills, 62.4 grams of spice and additional drug paraphernalia.

Mitchell was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a harmful new legend drug, marijuana possession, habitual driving without a license and resisting arrest.

He also received traffic citations for obstructing traffic, a seat belt violation, open container and a learners license violation.

Mitchell remained in the Escambia County Jail Sunday morning with bond set at $41,500.
