OCSO Drug Task Force Makes Arrest in Destin

The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force discovered cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia during the execution of a narcotics search warrant in an apartment on Airport Road in Destin on Wednesday.

The items were found during a search of the residence and a black 2006 Toyota 4 door.

35 year old Lawrence Posey is charged with the sale, manufacture, deliver, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, 4 counts, and cocaine, 2 counts.

A law enforcement records check of Posey revealed him to be a fugitive from the State of New York.

Posey was previously convicted there on drug charges unrelated to his current drug charges in Florida.

He failed to show up for sentencing in New York and a warrant was issued for his arrest. The State of New York has placed a hold on Posey and plans to extradite him.
