MILTON — The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission filed these cases between April 21 and 27 in Santa Rosa County:
MUD RIDING DAMAGES PROPERTY
Officer Hutchinson was patrolling near Keyser’s Landing and the Escambia River when he observed several men standing beside a truck that was stuck in a mud hole on the edge of the right of way.
He approached the men and, while speaking with them, observed fresh tire tracks and deep ruts in front of the truck leading into private property.
Hutchinson questioned the men about damage to the right of way and the private property. Two of the men admitted to mud riding and damaging the property.
The officer issued the two men notices to appear for damaging public land with a motor vehicle.
CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE FOUND ON SURF FISHER
Officers Lewis and Jernigan were patrolling on the beach when they observed a man surf fishing.
Lewis asked the man for his fishing license and, when he was retrieving it from his wallet, Lewis saw him remove a small baggie containing pills from his wallet. Inspection of the bag revealed a controlled substance. Another pill was also found in his wallet. The subject voluntarily stated that the pill in the baggie was Sub Oxone.
Lewis arrested and charged the subject with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia.
