Traffic Interdiction in Rosewood/Cedar Key Nets Arrests

February 6, 2019    
On February 5, 2019 Detectives from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force conducted targeted traffic interdiction in the Rosewood/Cedar Key area of Levy County. This operation was planned based on multiple citizen complaints of drug activities in these communities. Detectives conducted multiple traffic stops throughout the late afternoon and evening hours which resulted in four arrests. 

Dylan Quinn and Anthony Quinn (relationship unknown) were stopped in two separate traffic related infractions. Both were found in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and cited. Travis Findlay was observed recklessly operating an ATV. Deputies attempted to stop him and he fled. He was eventually boxed in on Shiloh Road and taken into custody. His ATV was towed, and he was arrested for fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement.

Johnathan Miller was stopped for a traffic infraction. A K-9 alerted to the presence of narcotics in his vehicle. A search of the vehicle located 4.25 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, unidentified pills and a loaded .45 caliber magazine. The gun was not located. Miller was arrested and has been charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest without violence. Miller is currently being held in the Levy County Detention Facility in lieu of a $177,000.00 bond.
