Traffic Stop Locates Drugs and a Gun

October 25, 2018
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
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.
