THE BRIEF:
RECKLESS DRIVING/DRUGS: While conducting an early morning patrol (2:00 a.m.) through a community in the N.W. District, Deputy B. Hetzler observed a vehicle driving at a high rate of speed, towards the marked patrol car in the oncoming lane. After nearly striking the patrol car head-on, a recycling bin and a mailbox, the vehicle came to a stop at an intersection within the community, as the deputy approached the car. According to the report, the deputy could smell the strong odor of Marijuana coming from the vehicle. As the subject exited the vehicle, the deputy witnessed a brown bottle fell from the drivers lap and onto the pavement. The driver admitted to the deputy that he had just smoked Marijuana from the bottle that had fallen on the ground. He also stated he had additional Marijuana in the center console of the car and a “Gravity Bong”. The subject was arrested for Reckless Driving and Possession of Marijuana and an associated Paraphernalia charge and was taken to the SJC Jail without further incident.

CRASH/DRUGS: A deputy working in the area of Flagler Hospital observed a vehicle driving down the road on 3 tires. As the driver noticed the deputy, the female driver pulled over and stated she had just hit a curb several miles away and drove until the deputy encountered her. The deputy asked the driver to remove the car from the travel lane, as to not obstruct traffic flow. The subject exited the vehicle, without being prompted to do so and the deputy noticed the subject appeared unsteady on her feet. When asked if she was under the influence of any substances, the subject stated “I may have a needle in my purse”. According to the report filed by Deputy E. Kelly, the subject advised the deputy he could retrieve the needle. Upon looking inside the vehicle, the deputy located 4 syringes, a smoking device, and spoons with pill residue and a bottle containing narcotic pills, identified as Cyclobenzaprine and Clonidine. When asked if she had prescriptions for the pills she stated “yes”, then “maybe” and then “yes” again. No prescriptions could be verified and the suspect was arrested for charges appropriate for the incident.

THEFT OF SUNGLASSES: N.E. District Deputies responded to a report of a theft from a local sunglass shop. According to the report filed by Deputy V. McKenzie, the employee of the shop stated a male subject, possibly in his 50’s, entered the store and began trying on “Costa” sunglasses. He also requested to try on some “Oakley” sunglasses at a different area of the store. The subject then walked back towards the case containing the Costa sunglasses, grabbed several pair, and ran from the store. The clerk stated 4 pair of sunglasses were taken in the event. She described the subject as wearing a blue shirt and a beige baseball hat, with tattoos on both arms. The value of the stolen sunglasses totaled $926.00.

DWLS/15 SUSPENSIONS: A deputy working in the S.W. District observed a subject driving, who the deputy knew as being a Habitual Driving Offender with 15 active suspensions, one of which was a 5 year suspension on his license. A computer check revealed the tag on the car was also not assigned to that vehicle. According to the report filed by Deputy B. Hardwick, a stop was conducted, the information verified, and the suspect was subsequently arrested for the charge of DWLS and Attaching a Tag Not Assigned. He was taken to the SJC Jail without incident.

TRAFFIC: Deputies working the S.W. District began working traffic control on CR214 in the area of 13A South over the weekend due to citizen complaints of careless drivers. Deputies issued 10 warnings to drivers for various offenses and 5 citations, one which was for a motorist driving 122 MPH. PLEASE Drive Responsibly as deputies will be visiting other areas of concern/citizen complaints.
