BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On March 21, Corporal Kelly Matson-Dobson and Deputy David Turbeville responded to 230 Columbia Drive in Cape Canaveral in reference to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot.

As they approached the vehicle, they observed and subsequently identified the driver as Timothy Edzimbist Johnson, who then attempted to shift the vehicle into drive as the vehicle was idling.

Deputy Turbeville approached the vehicle and attempted to make contact with Johnson who he then observed putting his right hand between his knees.

Deputy Turbeville further observed an orange pill bottle on the floor board under the front seat.

As Johnson rolled down the window the Deputies were able to detect the odor of Cannabis coming from the inside of the vehicle.

Johnson was asked for his driver’s license and was instructed to exit the vehicle.

Johnson did not immediately exit and was observed to be fidgeting around his lower legs with his hands as if he was reaching for something.

As the Deputies attempted to take custody of Johnson he continually resisted and attempted to reach inside the car near the driver’s side floorboard.

Johnson was subsequently secured after continuing to resist the Deputy’s verbal and physical commands.

A subsequent search of Johnson’s person and vehicle revealed almost $2,000 in cash, approximately 41 grams of crack cocaine, a small amount of heroin, cannabis and multiple firearms with fully loaded magazines.

As a result of the incident Johnson was charged with Resisting Arrest Without Violence, Trafficking In Cocaine, Possession of Cannabis Less 20 grams, Possession Cocaine Base, Possession of Controlled Substance (Alprazolam), Possession of Heroin, Possession of Firearm By Convicted Felon and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Please join me in thanking Cpl. Matson-Dobson and Deputy Turbeville for getting another criminal off our streets and in congratulating them for being named the Deputies of the Month for our Canaveral Precinct.
