SUWANNEE COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Authorities say a traffic stop for a suspended drivers license led to them finding opiates and morphine inside a Live Oak man's car.
David Dominguez, 44, was arrested by the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, at about 3:55 p.m., while a deputy was on routine patrol, he saw Dominguez driving a car, which he knew from prior incidents, did not have a valid drivers license.
Dominguez admitted to the deputy that he did not have a drivers license. A check of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles records confirmed that his license had been suspended since 1998.
Dominguez also told the deputy that there was a bag containing used syringes and a spoon in the center console that had morphine residue on them.
When the deputy conducted field tests on the syringes, they tested positive for the presence of opiates.
Based on the evidence, Dominguez is being charged with driving while license suspended and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was taken to the Suwannee County Jail.
