Strange hit-and-run incident involves meth and junk food

In late September, Florida Highway Patrol officers arrested a Mississippi couple who crashed into a Navarre convenience store and then fled the scene before being found in possession of a very peculiar loot. According to the FHP report, a 2015 Chevy Malibu pulled into the parking lot of a Circle K on Navarre Parkway on a Saturday morning. The driver hit a wooden box that ended up cracking the glass windows of the store. He then sped away as the store clerks called the police.

FHP officers intercepted the Chevy Malibu in Santa Rosa County. The officers then obtained permission from the driver to search the car and found dozens of Honey Buns and Tastykakes in their wrappers, an unusual amount of mail and credit cards in the name of numerous recipients, a syringe, a single Xanax tablet, and two small bags of methamphetamine.

It is estimated that the couple had more than $150 worth of snacks in their car. The driver is now facing various drug charges, including possession of drug paraphernalia, prescription drugs and methamphetamine. Moreover, a postal inspector has been called in to investigate the mail cache and credit cards found in the car.

Although drug possession charges have very serious consequences in Florida, the two bags of methamphetamine may be small enough to steer the court towards a drug diversion program. At any rate, people who find themselves in this type of situation might find it advisable to have the assistance of a criminal defense attorney, as it could be possible to have the attorney negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecution.
