When the light turned green he proceeded eastbound. Officer A got behind the defendant and ran his Florida Registration on his MDC. Per the returned message, Officer A was advised that the vehicle tag had a seize tag order and the registered owner known as the defendant had a suspended Florida DL. Officer A continued to follow the vehicle and noticed that the vehicle’s exhaust system was altered and very loud. At this point, Officer A decided to conduct a traffic stop. Officer A active his emergency equipment and sounded his siren. The defendant continued to travel eastbound for approximately ½ mile where he finally stopped.

Officer A notified dispatch of the vehicle stop and advised the tag number and vehicle description. As Officer A approached the vehicle that dispatch advised the seize tag order and this particular vehicle was BOLOed earlier in the shift as a vehicle that was driving recklessly. Officer A made contact with the driver who appeared nervous. Officer A learned that the driver was in fact the defendant. Officer A requested his Driver’s License and Vehicle registration. As the defendant provided his documented, Officer A noticed his hands were trembling and he was nervous. At this time, backup deputies arrived. They stayed with the defendant and Officer A returned to his vehicle to write the defendant two traffic citations for a Vehicle With an Altered exhaust and Driving While License Suspended First Offense. When Officer A returned to the vehicle to have the defendant sign the two citations, he asked the defendant why he was so nervous. The defendant advised that he had a Concealed Weapons Permit and was carrying a handgun in the center glove box. Officer A had the defendant exit the vehicle and Officer A retrieved a loaded Glock 19 handgun with a fifteen round magazine, for officer safety. Also stored in the center glove box was a second fully loaded fifteen round magazine and a fully loaded thirty round magazine. Officer A had the defendant produce his CCF Permit. As Officer A was securing the handgun, he noticed a strong odor of marijuana inside of the vehicle. Officer A advised the defendant Miranda from a issued card. The defendant acknowledged his rights and agreed to answer additional questions. Officer A asked him if there was marijuana in the vehicle. The defendant stated there may be a small amount between the seats. Officer A began to check the rest of the passenger compartment when he discovered a Kel Tech .223 semi auto machine pistol on the back seat within reach of the front seat occupant. The machine pistol was concealed under a black sweater. On the rear floorboard, Officer A located a 100 round fully loaded .223 drum magazine for the machine pistol. Officer A recovered the machine pistol, and the drum magazine for the machine pistol. Officer A recovered the machine pistol, and the drum. Officer A continued to smell the strong odor of marijuana in the vehicle. The smell was more pungent in the rear seat area and towards the trunk. Officer A continued to search the rear seat area and located several small zip-lock baggies in the pocket on the rear of the front seat passenger seat. There was a small amount of marijuana residue in the baggies, but not enough for the amount of odor that he was still smelling in the vehicle. Officer A also located one spent 9 mm shell casing on the floor of the rear passenger compartment. He recovered these items for evidence.

Officer A then began to search the trunk where he immediately found a large black nylon rifle case that contained two additional .223 fully loaded 30 round magazines and other equipment for the machine pistol. The odor of the marijuana was stronger in the trunk of the vehicle and he continued to search the trunk for the source of the odor. On the rights ide of the trunk panel where the jack and tire tools would be housed, officer A located a zip-lock baggy with three additional zip lock baggies that contained a small amounts of marijuana packaged for street level sale. On the exterior of the baggy that had the three baggies with marijuana was a handwritten number 10. From Officer A’s training and experience, he knows this is a common way that street level narcotics dealers note the amount of narcotics contained a package and the amount each should be sold for.

Upon further inspection, Officer A located two blue latex globes each with a handwritten inscription of 10 and 20 respectively. Officer A knew that these are inscriptions used in the street level sale of narcotics. Inside each of the latex gloves was additional zip-lock baggies individually packaged with small amounts of marijuana for street level sale. Officer A revered all of the individual baggies and the latex gloves and the empty baggies with the handwritten inscriptions typical of street level narcotic sale packaging. Officer A arrested the defendant and placed him in handcuffs for the charge of Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Deliver.

Officer A seized the defendant’s CCF permit, the two firearms, and all the ammunition for both guns, the magazines and the packaged marijuana and took it all as evidence. Officer A field-tested the suspected marijuana with a Duquenois Reagent Test Kit and it showed positive for marijuana. Officer A photographed the firearms, ammunition, and magazines.

At the office, Officer A weighed all the marijuana and it totaled approximately 4.5 grams. Officer A repackaged the marijuana and had it sent to the lab for further testing. Officer A also photographed the marijuana and how it was packaged for evidence.

Officer V then identified the defendant as a possible suspect who was in the car, at which time Officer V read him his Miranda Rights. The defendant advised that the green leafy substance found in the car was marijuana and that he was the owner of it. Officer V then placed the defendant under arrest.

The money and marijuana were seized and stored and kept away from each other. The defendant was transported to the police department for processing.

Note: Based on the facts of this case, Mr. Foley supplied the state attorney with case law, Thames v. State of Florida and Jackson v. State of Florida, and Sampson V. State of Florida, and Lesaine V. State of Florida which stood for the proposition that the quantity of drugs and money found on the defendant’s person without other corroborating evidence, was not inconsistent with personal use. Accordingly, this case should be reduced to a misdemeanor. The state disagreed with Mr. Foley’s logic, a side bar was taken, the case law was presented to the judge, he compared it to the probable cause affidavit filed in the case, and asked the prosecutor what was she thinking, she repeated her former statement that she disagreed. The judge contacted her supervisor, that state attorney was removed from that judge’s courtroom the next day and the result was that the case was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.
