A vehicle speeding through a residential neighborhood ended in the arrest of two Holmes County men last Thursday, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Just after 2 a.m., on August 15, a Washington County Sheriff’s deputy stopped a vehicle which was traveling at nearly 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit on Nearing Hills Road, according to a release.
K9 Axil was deployed and immediately alerted to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of methamphetamine, which was located under the driver’s side floorboard, according to the release.
The driver, 19 year old Marcus Kale Fournier of Bonifay, was taken into custody on the charge of possession of methamphetamine. The passenger of the vehicle, identified as Justin Taylor Closson, 24, of Bonifay, was also arrested on a violation of state probation warrant on charges out of Washington County, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Both subjects were booked into the Washington County Jail, according to the release.
