A call for Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies to check on a man asleep in a car at a Mary Esther restaurant ended with the driver facing trafficking charges for fentanyl, oxycodone, and methamphetamine.
A man later identified as 29-year old Stephen Scott Wilson, address unknown, was sleeping in his Toyota Camry in the Sonic parking lot around 1:30 a.m. August 12th . Deputies could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle as they approached.
Wilson was slow to awake when they knocked loudly on the window. He was also uncooperative and making furtive movements inside the car. Wilson was detained but continued to ignore verbal commands.
During a probable cause search, deputies discovered approximately 965 grams of meth, 204 grams of heroin, 67 grams of fentanyl, 503 grams of a hydrocodone mixture, a pill press, and marijuana. Wilson was arrested on multiple felony drug trafficking charges. The investigation is ongoing.
