SANTA ROSA BEACH — A call from a concerned citizen lead to the arrest of a 33-year-old Freeport man who was found with nearly 40 grams of methamphetamines.
Just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, the Walton County Sheriff's Office received a call regarding a reckless driver heading east on U.S. Highway 98. A deputy observed the vehicle in the area of Watersound Parkway leaving the roadway and entering the median, nearly driving in the opposite lanes into oncoming traffic.
The deputy conducted a traffic stop and identified the driver as Terry Dwayne Murr Jr.
Murr seemed tired and nervous, according to the WCSO, and told the deputy he fell asleep while driving.
The deputy searched his car with Murr's consent and found a small black case under the driver's seat. Inside the case was a large bag with methamphetamines inside. Further investigation revealed three additional bags of meth, marijuana, a clear glass pipe, a digital scale and other paraphernalia.
Murr was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of cannabis less than 20 grams, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked into the Walton County Jail.
