May 11, 2021

A Century man was charged with multiple felony narcotics counts after a traffic stop.

Demontra Johnta Mitchell, 27, was charged with trafficking in oxycodone, possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, tampering with evidence, distribution of an opium derivative (oxycodone), possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving with license suspended habitual offender.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a Ford Escape driven by Mitchell in the area of New Warrington Road and Mobile highway due to a seat belt violation and a partially obscured tag.

During a search of the vehicle, deputies reported finding 13 oxycodone pills, 18.5 grams of marijuana, methamphetamine, powder cocaine, crack cocaine, a digital scale and $700 in cash, according to an arrest report.

Mitchell remained in the Escambia County Jail without bond.

    This is gonna be an unpopular position, but I believe that adults should be able to chose what they put in their own body. If some idiot wants to poison themselves with heroin or whatever, what do I care. Let em kill themselves by shooting dope, just dont expect me to pay for the narcan shot

    No bond? What the heck? Hard to believe a judge hasn’t signed off on a $1500 bail. I’m impressed.

    Court system is a joke due to liberals now. He will only get probation since it’s a “non violent” crime.

    Theres no incentive to be a law abiding citizen anymore. I might as well collect unemployment and become a street pharmacist.

    Felons will soon be able to own gun since they can vote now. Just watch. Felons will have more rights than law abiding citizens because theyll be portrayed as “victims” of the state. That’s the way things are headed.
