The Flomaton Police Department announced the arrest of a man on multiple drug charges after an officer said he pulled him over because of an improper lane change.
The arrest happened on Aug. 5, near Upper Creek Road.
Clinton Wiggins pulled over, and as a K9 officer approached, the dog alerted the officer about the presence of narcotics.
K9 BOO was right, according to police.
The officer reported finding Clonazepam, hydrocodone, marijuana, methamphetamine, fake US currency, drug paraphernalia and firearms in the vehicle. Police said Wiggins had the items illegally.
Upon investigating, the officer determined the amount of methamphetamine was enough to determine Wiggins was distributing the drugs.
Wiggins is now charged with possession of a controlled substance - intent to distribute meth, two other counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana - second degree, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a forged instrument, and carrying a firearm without a permit, along with a charge for an improper lane change.
Wiggins was placed in the Escambia County Detention Center. He is considered innocent until proven guilty.
