SIGNIFICANT DRUG ARREST

On March 13, 2021 at approximately 1700 hours while on routine patrol, Officer V. Peterpaul conducted a traffic stop on NE 2nd Avenue resulting in two arrests. Charges include 5 counts of possession of a controlled substance, 2 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and 1 count of trafficking of m**h over 14 grams.

The traffic stop was conducted on a white in color Jeep SUV bearing an expired Florida temporary tag. Upon making contact with the driver identified as David Ray Queen and passenger Meagan Wright Jones, Officer Peterpaul noticed that both subjects were arguing and displaying erratic behavior. Which prompted the Officer to remove both parties from the vehicle for officer safety reasons. At this time, Chief M. Rexroat and GCSO K-9 Deputy D. Reeves arrived as backup.

While Officer Peterpaul addressed the expired tag issue, Deputy Reeves conducted a free air sniff of the vehicle resulting in multiple alerts from K-9 Ace.

At this time, a systematic search of the vehicle was conducted. Inside, a black bag that Queen claimed as his was found and later determined to have 19.5 grams of crystal m**h, 1.6 grams of a white powder and liquid mixture, an eye dropper that was later determined to be 14 grams of liquid m**h and a pill container filled with liquid m**h/pill wash as well as a green and silver in color m**h pipe.

On the passenger side of the vehicle, in close proximity to Jones, a small zip up case was found containing 1.6 grams of crystal m**h, as well as a small mirror with white residue and a syringe with a rubber band consistent with drug paraphernalia.

Both passengers were arrested and transported to Gilchrist County Jail with a total bond set for $66,000(Bond set by an out of county judge).

We here at TDPS thank GCSO for working so closely with us in our efforts to make our city safer. A special thank you to K-9 Ace and Deputy Reeves!

FELONY ARREST

On Tuesday March 9th, 2021 at approximately 1150 hours TDPS Officer V. Peterpaul arrested Carroll Barron for possession of m**hamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and failure to obey a traffic control device. Total bond amount was set at $60,000.

While on patrol, Officer Peterpaul observed a red in color sedan in the area of SE 2nd St. and Wade St. with a broken taillight, a missing side view mirror, among other things on the heavily damaged vehicle. After observing a moving violation (failure to stop at a stop sign) a traffic stop was conducted in the Gilchrist County Courthouse parking lot.

Upon further investigation, the driver’s erratic behavior prompted a search of the vehicle. With the assistance of GCSO K-9 unit, a loaded syringe was collected along with other drug paraphernalia. The clear substance in the syringe field tested presumptively positive for m**hamphetamine. Resulting in the arrest of the subject.

TDPS and GCSO will relentlessly combine efforts to combat the introduction of drugs into our great community!
