JACKSON COUNTY FL: On Wednesday, March 31, 2021, at approximately 12:38 PM, a Deputy with the Uniform Patrol Division observed a silver Toyota Corolla enter into the path of another vehicle, while turning onto 10th Street in Malone. The Deputy conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the driver, Harvey Burch III.
During the course of the traffic stop, K-9 “Rocky” was deployed to conduct a free-air sniff of the exterior of the vehicle and did give a positive alert to the odor of narcotics within the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted and a quantity of suspected Xanex pills was located.
The pills were not packaged in a prescription bottle and during a post-Miranda interview, it was determined that Burch had knowledge of the pills being located inside the vehicle. Burch was placed under arrest and transported to Jackson County Correctional Facility to await first appearance.
Harvey Drayton Burch, III
40 years old
