Troop C’s CIP Team Does it Again!

CIP LOGOOnce again the Contraband Interdiction Program Team C-3 has made another significant drug arrest! While patrolling Interstate 75 in Sumter County, Trooper Jimmie Davis observed a 1994 Honda Sedan following other traffic too closely. A routine tag check on Trooper Davis’ MDT revealed that the tag belonged on a Chevrolet pickup truck and not a Honda.

Once the vehicle was stopped, the driver and passenger gave conflicting stories to Trooper Davis and Trooper Jason Lemery. Trooper Davis’s partner, FHP K-9 Jewels, alerted to the Honda and a search revealed a package in the back seat of the car that contained 100 bags of individually packaged crack cocaine with a total weight of approximately 100 grams. The driver and passenger were arrested. Great job to all “three” of you!!
