ON 12/14/18 At approximately 1:30 am while on routine patrol, officers were watching a house that has been known to sell narcotics in Eustis.
“We observed a white jeep pull into the residence and leave within minutes. I observed that the window tint on the vehicle was so dark that I could not see into the vehicle at which time I conducted a traffic stop.”
The tint was tested and confirmed to be too dark.
“I then asked for consent to search the vehicle and which time both subjects did not give consent to search. K-9 deputy was already on scene, therefore, he conducted a k-9 walk around the exterior of the vehicle. The k-9 did alert for the presence of narcotics inside of the vehicle.”
“After conducting a search of both subjects and the vehicle. We located a clear plastic baggy in the arrestee’s pocket.”
“No other narcotics were located. The arrestee stated he forgot it was in his pocket and that he is a small time user The arrestee was very cooperative. The arrestee was then taken into custody and transported to the lake county jail and issued a written warning reference the window tint violation.”
Mr. Allen has prior arrests for meth. Here is a link to his previous Lake County arrest records.
