Brooksville Police: Traffic stop leads to cocaine arrest


Published:

BROOKSVILLE - A traffic stop Monday morning led to the arrest of Lane Sanders, 46, on charges of driving with a suspended license, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia.

After being pulled over into the Hilltop Saloon parking lot, Sanders told Brooksville Police that his license was suspended. After Sanders was detained, a K-9 alerted the scent of narcotics in Sanders' pickup truck, and officers found a bag of crack cocaine and a crack pipe under the driver's floor mat, according to police.

Sanders was released on $2,000 bond Sunday afternoon.

Jail records show Sanders was arrested twice in 2012 on failure to appear charges.

Court records show that in June, Sanders was charged with unknowingly driving with a suspended license and writing a worthless check.
