A Crestview man who faced a half dozen charges after fleeing an attempted traffic stop had two more felonies added after deputies served a search warrant on his residence: trafficking in fentanyl and trafficking in methamphetamine.
An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputy tried to make a traffic stop September 19th on a vehicle with an expired tag near Olene’s Lane and Old River Road in Baker, but instead the driver ignored the lights and siren and went to a home on Olene’s Lane. Talbot then jumped out of the car carrying a small bag. He ran inside and refused to exit.
In the vehicle deputies found a firearm, used syringe, and silver capsule with narcotics residue.
Talbot eventually came out and was taken into custody. Deputies had obtained a search warrant and found a small bag with ten grams suspected fentanyl and two plastic bags containing methamphetamine hidden behind a refrigerator.
Charges against Talbot include trafficking in fentanyl, trafficking in methamphetamine, fleeing and eluding with lights and siren activated, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, resisting an officer, and violation of probation on an original charge of grand theft.
