Traffic stop leads to meth trafficking arrest


Published:

BROOKSVILLE - A Brooksville man pulled over for swerving between lanes Monday afternoon was later booked on charges of trafficking in methamphetamine.

Nicholas Morrow, 31, of 8457 Southern Charm Circle, was pulled over on Hall Drive, and produced an ID card instead of a driver's license.

Sergeant Scott Lamia later learned Morrow was driving without a valid license for failure to pay traffic fines and court costs.

Morrow resisted arrest, and was taken to the ground by Lamia and Brooksville Police officers.

The officers searched Morrow's pickup after a sheriff's K-9 alerted the scent of drugs, finding 14.8 grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Morrow was booked on charges of trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest without violence and driving with a suspended or revoked license with knowledge. He is being held on $21,250 bond.

Court records show Morrow has been convicted of numerous felony and misdemeanor charges in the past.
