Trespassing, possession. A Bunnell woman arrested for trespassing at a gas station told police that the cocaine pipe found in her pocket belonged to ‘a drunk guy’ and she was planning to return it to him.

Police officers were called to a gas station to remove the woman, who had been trespassed from the store just a week before. When the officers got to the gas station, the woman was trying to buy drinks, according to her arrest report.

When the officers arrested her, they searched her pockets and found a glass pipe with burn residue from cocaine on it. The officers asked her about the pipe, and the woman said it belonged to a drunk guy, the report said.

She was arrested and charged with trespassing and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Just keep rolling

12:36 p.m. — the intersection of Palm Coast Parkway and Boulder Rock Drive, Palm Coast

Possession, obstruction, child neglect. A Sheriff's Office deputy pulled over a car that ran a stop light, only to find the driver drove through a stoplight because he was rolling a marijuana joint.

Two of three men in the car were arrested after Sheriff’s Office deputies found 20 grams of marijuana and 0.9 grams of cocaine, according to arrest reports. When the deputy walked up to the driver window after pulling the sedan over, he both smelled marijuana and saw residue from it on the driver’s shirt.

The driver said the residue on his shirt was from a cigarette, the report said. The deputy asked the three men to step out of the car so he could search it and called for backup. 

A second deputy arrived on the scene and both deputies searched the car, finding the 20 grams of marijuana and 0.9 grams of cocaine. The driver and one of the passengers admitted to having the marijuana and cocaine.

Because a child was also in the car, child neglect was added to the two men’s charges.
