NICEVILLE — A 38-year-old man was arrested on a slew of drug charges following a traffic stop for an expired car registration.
An officer pulled the man over while he was driving on 26th Street on Dec. 29 because his registration had expired, according to the Niceville Police Department report. The officer asked the driver for consent to search his vehicle because it had come from a “known drug house,” which he denied. The officer then had a K9 dog perform a free air sniff of the vehicle, at which point the dog alerted officers to the presence of drugs in the car.
After searching the car, officers found methamphetamine, marijuana, hydromorphone, Xanax, amphetamine, hash oil, syringes, spoons, straws and gummy bears with a white powder that was sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for analysis.
The man was arrested and charged with one count of marijuana possession, four counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and four counts of drug equipment possession.
