Window Tint Traffic Stop Uncovered Large Stash of Illegal Items

A Florida Man who was reportedly pulled over for the shade of his window tint was arrested after the police allegedly discovered he had firearms and multiple types of drugs in his vehicle.

On May 30, a man with tinted windows on his vehicle was driving in Cocoa, Florida.

A deputy with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office saw the vehicle, and when they noticed the window tint, they believed it was darker than what is legally allowed. The deputy performed a traffic stop to better assess the situation.

When he walked up to the vehicle, the deputy reported that it smelled like someone had been smoking marijuana. The deputy believed there were drugs in the vehicle, so he searched the interior and allegedly found a large stash of illegal items.

According to a release by the sheriff’s office, the deputy uncovered an AK-47, a pistol with armor-piercing ammunition, drug paraphernalia, and a scale believed to be used for weighing narcotics for making sales.

It was reported that when the suspect was pat down and searched, the deputy found he was holding 21.3 grams of crack cocaine, 20 packets of suboxone, 2 small bags of cannabis, 5 Oxycodone pills, and $3305 on him.

The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Brevard County Jail. He is facing charges for suspicion of possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, possession of marijuana with the intent to sell, possession of suboxone with the intent to sell, possession of Oxycodone with the intent to sell, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, open carry of a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is currently being held without bond.
