Century man facing drug charges

 

November 29, 2018



A Century man has been charged with felony drug charges after a K-9 law enforcement officer conducting a concerned citizen contact found the driver without a driver's license and the officer's dog alerted on the vehicle.

Austin Lane Mosley, 23, 6941 N. Century Blvd., was a backseat passenger in a red Ford Fusion in the area of Langley Avenue and Goodrich Drive in Pensacola when the driver of the vehicle abruptly parked and activated the emergency flashers.

According to a Pensacola Police Department report, an officer made contact with the driver, Takeesha Mitchell, who said her car was having trouble. The officer asked for mitchell's driver's license and was advised by Mitchell she did not have a driver's license but only an ID card.

The two officers on scene conducted a free air sniff of the vehicle and reported that the K-9 Foster alerted on the vehicle, the report said.

When officers conducted a probably cause search of the vehicle, they found in the trunk a small gift bag. The gift bag contained a green leafy substance, which the officer identified as marijuana due to his law enforcement training and experience, in a vacuum sealed bag. The bag weighed approximately 290 grams, the report stated.

Mitchell told authorities that Mosley had gotten the marijuana from a man named Chobie from an address on Toni Street several minutes prior to the encounter with police. Mosley advised officers the marijuana would cost him $1,300, the report stated.

The report said the officer identified the packaging and quantity of marijuana to be indicative of someone attempting to distribute narcotics.

Mosley's cell phones were collected for further narcotics investigation and he was arrested and transported to the Escambia County Jail and given a bond of $10,000.
