A Summerfield man was jailed on drug charges this past Friday night after the vehicle he was riding in was stopped for having no tail lights.
A Marion County sheriff’s deputy stopped the vehicle near U.S. Hwy. 441 and Sunset Harbor Road. While attempting to identify the occupants of the vehicle, the deputy observed a plastic bag with methamphetamine and marijuana on the ground outside a passenger-side window, a sheriff’s office report states.
The deputy reviewed footage from his patrol vehicle’s dash camera and saw 23-year-old Jacob Caine Morris throw the bag out of the window, the report says. He was then placed under arrest and transported to the Marion County Jail.
Morris was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. His bond also was revoked on previous charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession and/or use of drug equipment and possession of marijuana not more than 20 grams. He was being held on $5,000 bond on the new charge and no bond on the past charges. He is due in court June 22, jail records show.
