The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Uniformed Patrol Division deputies conducted a traffic stop on CR 337 south of Bronson on a gray Ford truck just before 10 PM last night for unlawful speed. Deputies recently increased patrols in this area based on citizen complaints of suspicious activities and speeders.
Deputy A. Horne and Sgt. L. Allen with her K-9 partner Phoenix spoke to the driver of the truck, identified as Daryl Dallas Jr (1-8-92) of Williston. Deputy Horne immediately smelled the odor of burned marijuana and asked Dallas if he had been smoking. Dallas, without saying a word, handed over a small package which was confirmed to be marijuana. Dallas, who is not prescribed marijuana for any medicinal reason, was removed from the vehicle and the interior was searched.
Deputies located a loaded .38 handgun adjacent to a metal tin hidden underneath the driver’s seat. The tin contained 14 alprazolam pills, 13 oxycodone pills, 28.6 grams of powder cocaine, 11.6 grams of methamphetamine, 1.41 grams of crack cocaine and baggies commonly used to package drugs for street level sales. Dallas was arrested and transported to the Levy County Detention Facility.
Dallas has been charged with trafficking in cocaine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (alprazolam/oxycodone), possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony, possession of a concealed weapon, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in lieu of a $327,000.00 bond.
