Teen Caught with Drugs and Loaded Stolen Gun in Vehicle

A Florida teenager is facing many charges after the police accused him of speeding, and allegedly found drugs, guns, and cash that they believe was earned through drug sales during a search of the vehicle.

According to reports, just after midnight on August 19, a vehicle in Lady Lake allegedly being driven 20 miles over the posted speed limit was spotted by a police officer from the Lady Lake Police Department.

The driver went into an Applebee’s parking lot before the officer tried to perform a traffic stop, and he allegedly sped through the lot and failed to stop until he struck a curb.

When the officer approached the vehicle, a loaded Glock that the authorities believed was stolen was allegedly visible. The car was searched, and just over a half ounce of marijuana, 7 grams of cocaine, just under a half ounce of what was believed to be THC extract in the form of wax, a pipe, several Oxycodone pills, and $250.00 was found.

The 19-year-old suspect was arrested by the Lady Lake Police Department and booked into the Lake County Jail. He is facing several charges including second-degree felony fleeing to elude law enforcement, second-degree misdemeanor driving while license is suspended (first offense), second-degree felony possession of cocaine with intent to sell/manufacture/deliver a schedule II substance, third-degree felony drug possession of synthetic cannabinoids, third-degree felony distribution of opium or derivative schedule III substance, third-degree felony possession of marijuana over 20 grams, first-degree misdemeanor resisting officer without violence, third-degree felony grand theft of a firearm, third-degree felony grand theft, and first-degree misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to jail records, the man was released from custody after posting a $38,000 bond.
