Palm Coast, FL - A traffic stop is leading to jail time for three men, including one who handed deputies an ID covered in cocaine, after Flagler County deputies found a stolen firearm, drugs, and $15,000 in cash in their car.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) says deputies saw a vehicle speeding in the area of State Road 100 West and County Road 45 on Saturday (Nov. 27). Deputies tried to attempt a traffic stop, but the vehicle continued to drive at speeds over 100 mph.
Once the car finally slowed down, deputies were able to conduct a traffic stop where they made contact with the three occupants: 21-year-old Jimnirable Curry, 21-year-old Ernest Hall, and 19-year-old Keyshawn Davis.
A release from the sheriff’s office says deputies recognized Hall. Additionally, Davis did not have an ID with him and Curry’s ID was found to have a powder residue that later tested positive for cocaine.
Besides recovering marijuana on Hall and Curry, deputies also discovered an additional container of marijuana, two firearms, and about $15,270 cash contained in a black drawstring bag. Deputies also determined that one of the recovered firearms was reported stolen from Flagler Beach in 2017.
According to deputies, Curry said the cash found in the car was “made by rapping and performing at shows” and that “not a lot” was from selling drugs.
“Drugs, cash, guns, and felons are a recipe for danger to our deputies and the community,” Flagler Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Curry qualifies for a dumb criminal of the year award after handing a Deputy Sheriff his ID coated in cocaine!"
Hall was charged with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm, grand theft of a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana 20g or less, and violation of probation. He’s held on a $20,500 bond.
Curry has been charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana 20g or less, and violation of probation and was given a $3,000 bond. Meanwhile, Davis was arrested for two counts of carrying a concealed firearm and grand theft of a firearm. He's being held on a $7,500 bond.
