traffic stop yields large amount of Meth
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Last Friday night, Deputy Aimee Slater conducted a traffic stop in Merritt Island that resulted in the arrest of Levi Collins and Joanne Hardin on various Drug Related Charges and Violation of Probation.
Following the initial traffic stop Deputy Slater worked closely with K-9 Handler Jerry Shealy to discover a large amount of Meth that was concealed inside the car and was packaged for re-distribution. Deputies also recovered oxycodone and marijuana in the car as well.
