Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Beck says he immediately noticed how badly 29-year-old Dre’von Davis‘ hands were shaking as he conducted a traffic stop on his vehicle Wednesday night. A search of the white Buick would eventually reveal a backpack containing over a pound of marijuana, vape pens, and a handgun. Dre’von Davis is free on a $20,000 bond.
Officers say Dre’von Davis failed to slow down and move over for a deputy who was conducting another traffic stop on Hwy 48 just after 9 p.m. Wednesday. As he conducted a traffic stop for the failure to move over for an emergency vehicle he says Davis’ hands were shaking as he asked him for his license. Deputy Vallejos and a K9 arrived at the scene and conducted an open-air sniff which provided probable cause for a search of the vehicle.
Davis admitted there would be “some marijuana” in the vehicle, and officers located a backpack containing just over one-half pound of loose marijuana (251 grams), another one-half pound of 12 pre-packaged bags of marijuana (250 grams combined), and 23 THC vapes. Also in the car was a scale with residue and a loaded Glock handgun.
Dre’von Shawntel Davis was booked into the Montgomery County Jail, charged with failure to move over, three counts of schedule VI drug violations, drug paraphernalia, and possession of a firearm with intent/during the commission of a felony. He is free on a $20,000 bond.
