A suspected dealer was nabbed with an assortment of drugs and cash.
Wesly Jamal Carroll, 27, of Belleview, was traveling at about 7 a.m. Monday in a 1997 Dodge Ram pickup when he was pulled over at Perkins Street and West North Boulevard in Leesburg for not wearing a seat belt, according to an arrest report from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
As Carroll was searching for his vehicle’s documentation, he opened up the vehicle’s center console where the deputy spotted a firearm with a flashlight and laser attachment. The console also contained several small plastic baggies.
The deputy removed Carroll from the vehicle and ordered him to sit on the front bumper.
A search of the vehicle turned up 16 packages of THC gummies, 39 THC vape cartridges, 56 individually wrapped bags containing a leafy green substance that was identified as marijuana, 14 pills identified as Amphetamine Dextroamphetamine and a digital scale. There was also $2,658 in cash found in the pickup.
“Due to the totality of the circumstances, and the evidence I found, I believe Mr. Carroll to be a drug dealer,” the deputy wrote in arrest report.
Carroll was arrested on multiple drug charges as well as a charge of possession of a firearm while committing a felony. He was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $48,000 bond.
