WASHINGTON COUNTY, FL; Washington County Sheriff’s Office amped up area patrols during the holiday weekend to ensure motorist safety and felony drug arrests were made as a result.

“Whether we are warning a vehicle to slow down, responding to a reckless driver report, or making a drug arrest during a traffic stop, we are doing it to ensure the safety of our community,” says Sheriff Crews. “The holidays are a time of increased travel for many families, and it is important that we make sure everyone arrives at their destination safely.”

Deputies heightened patrols warning drivers to take it slow but some of the traffic stops and incidents led to felony drug arrests. 

“Ridding our county of illegal drug activity will always be a priority and removing them from our roadways is critical,” added Sheriff Crews. “A person behind the wheel of a vehicle, who is in possession of or under the influence of an illegal substance is a severe threat to the safety of other motorists and themselves.

Those arrested over the weekend were:

Benjamin Ellis Best, 44, of Chipley, FL- Possession of methamphetamine.

Tommy Joe Parks, 51, of Ebro, FL-Possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Allan Dean Padgett, 56, Hampton, FL-possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and DUI.
