Officers from the DeFuniak Springs Police Patrol Division arrested Beverly Ann Holmes (07/08/1953), on Saturday, December 11th 2010 and charged her with Possession of Cannabis (More than 20 Grams) and Possession of Cannabis with Intent to Distribute, both Felony Level Narcotic Violations.
Holmes was arrested after officers responded to a 911 Call on East Sloss Avenue. When making contact with Holmes, who was present at the residence, an officer observed a marijuana cigarette, inside of a prescription bottle, that was concealed in Holmes’ purse. The discovery took place when Holmes went to retrieve her photo identification and she then made attempts to continue to conceal the paraphernalia from officers.
Upon further investigation, another prescription bottle was located; it contained 17 pre-rolled marijuana cigarettes. Also found in Holmes’ purse was a plastic baggie containing almost 20 grams of cannabis. Officers also seized over $400.00 in cash.
Holmes was taken into custody and transported to the Walton County Jail.
