A records check through dispatch revealed that Peak did not possess a valid driver’s license. A search of the vehicle was ultimately performed, resulting in the discovery of two glass smoking pipes and a bag containing methamphetamine.

Warrants were later obtained, and both subjects were arrested on October 22, charged possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Monday, October 21, a deputy initiated another stop in that area, making contact with 40-year-old Joseph M. Collingwood of Andalusia.

Collingwood was detained after a records check through dispatch confirmed him to have active warrants out of Okaloosa County.

As the vehicle was being inventoried for towing, deputies located three baggies containing a white powder-like substance that tested positive for cocaine.

Collingwood is charged with cocaine possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
