Palm Coast, FL – A man from Palm Coast has been arrested by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) for trafficking methamphetamine and possessing several other drugs that were seized during the execution of a search warrant in July.
At around 7 AM on Thursday, the FCSO arrested 37-year-old Jeremy Toumbs. When the Special Investigations Unit and FCSO deputies showed up at Toumbs’ workplace, he fled immediately and tried to get rid of marijuana and hydrocodone pills.
Back in July, a narcotics search warrant was executed at 17 Port Lane in Palm Coast. Multiple narcotics were found and Toumbs was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of marijuana under 20 grams. A Styrofoam cup with what appeared to be white sludge and a rock-like substance was also found.
The substance tested positive for cocaine. The mixture was then given to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Crime Laboratory who determined it was actually 25.64 grams of methamphetamine, 11.64 grams over the threshold of trafficking.
Toumbs now faces charges of trafficking methamphetamine, possession of crack cocaine, possession of hydrocodone, possession of marijuana under 20 grams, and fleeing and eluding law enforcement. He is being held at the Flagler County Detention Facility on a $39,000 bond.
