A traffic stop on a driver who nearly ran a stop sign Sunday led to the confiscation of baggies of heroin, methamphetamine, and other narcotics.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged 41-year old Craig Calloway of Crestview with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug equipment (scales), and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Calloway was arrested March 15th following a traffic stop on Pine Avenue in Crestview.
The deputy making the initial traffic stop noticed a brown leather gun holster clipped to Calloway’s driver’s side door. A supervisor also spotted ammunition in plain view in the center console.
A search of the car turned up baggies containing heroin, meth, and prescription drugs, as well as a loaded 9 mm handgun.
Calloway has 27 prior felony convictions, including a guilty verdict in August 2019 for possession of a weapon by a felon.
