GRACEVILLE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Jackson County Sheriff's Office arrested 51 year old Reginald Alphonso Williams of Graceville, Fla. on drug charges on Wednesday, August 30. 

A deputy spotted a white four door sedan, traveling northbound on Brown Street with a shattered windshield blocking the view of the driver. The driver was then pulled over. 

While the deputy was talking to the driver, the passenger, Reginald Alphonso Williams, tried to hide what appeared to be a baggie in his wallet. Also, the deputy could smell the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the car. 

The deputy gained consent to search the sedan and located a green leafy substance, identified as synthetic marijuana “K2” within Williams’ wallet. The green leafy substance did test presumptive positive for a synthetic stimulant.

The deputy also located an aluminum style device commonly used to inhale narcotics in an interior concealed compartment along with a crystallized substance, within a jewelry style bag, which field tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine. 

Williams had told the deputy the concealed compartment container inside the vehicle was his and he was placed under arrest. 

Williams faces the following charges: 

  • Possession of Methamphetamine
  • Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

He was transported to the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await first appearance on his charges.
