A traffic stop in Destin led to the arrests of all four occupants in the car on charges ranging from trafficking in methamphetamine to possession of drug paraphernalia.
An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputy checking a license plate on a gold Buick Sunday learned the tag belonged to a red Honda SUV. When he made the traffic stop, it turned out the driver of the car, 24-year old Chelsea Cory of Fort Walton Beach, had just been convicted in February 2018 of driving with a license suspended or revoked. Cory gave the deputy permission to search her backpack. Inside he found a scale and syringes which tested positive for meth. Under the driver’s seat was also a package with smaller bags of methamphetamine and marijuana. Cory is charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of meth, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputies say a tan pouch found near 29-year old Jason Polgar of Fort Walton Beach contained seven grams of heroin and also Alprazolam. He is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of heroin, trafficking in heroin, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
38-year old Dale Mosby of Shalimar is charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. 22-year old Jason Bartlett of Navarre is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
