DESTIN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A Destin man has been arrested on multiple charges after deputies say a loaded gun, drugs, and thousands of dollars was found in his car.

Deputies say they pulled over Kareem Mitry, 26, for speeding on Harbor Boulevard.

A supervising deputy said he saw Mitry reaching under his seat as another deputy walked to his car. The deputy said Mitry refused to answer what he was reaching for and deputies found a loaded handgun in that spot on the floorboard.

Deputies say they then searched the car and found a large amount of MDMA, about 795 grams of marijuana, and more than $7,200 in cash.

Mitry was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, trafficking in MDMA (more than 200 grams), possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony, and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
