Brooker man arrested on multiple warrants for drug distribution
BY JENNIFER CABRERA
BROOKER, Fla. – Aaron Lee Prescott, 36, was arrested yesterday on a sworn complaint from January and a warrant that was issued after he failed to appear at a hearing on a second case.
An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a traffic stop on January 4 in Jonesville on a Ford truck driven by Prescott; the deputy wrote that the probable cause for the stop was an expired tag.
After requesting the registration, the deputy found that the vehicle was owned by a man who died several months ago and that he could not establish that Prescott had any rights to the truck. During an inventory search as part of towing the truck, the deputy reportedly found about 50 small baggies and a small scale covered in white powder. The deputy also found about 18.1 grams of methamphetamine, 14 doses of Vyvanse, and four doses of Buprenorphine Hydrochloride.
Post Miranda, Prescott reportedly said he was planning on selling the narcotics and that he regularly uses the truck to distribute narcotics throughout the northwest part of Alachua County. The sworn complaint affidavit does not state why Prescott was not arrested, but a warrant for his arrest was issued on March 16.
Prescott was also arrested on February 15 after a deputy pulled him over in Lacrosse for not having a tag on the same Ford truck and because the deputy knew he did not have a valid license. A search of the truck reportedly produced about 7.2 grams of methamphetamine and two glass pipes. Prescott was released on $65,000 bail but failed to appear at a hearing on March 30, resulting in the issuance of a warrant.
Prescott has 12 felony convictions and has served two state prison sentences. The warrant in the January case recommended $225,000 bond in that case, and Judge Susan Miller-Jones ordered that bail amount; the warrant in the February case specified no bond, and Prescott is currently being held without bond in that case.
Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Needs to spend time away from society for a while. Spreading poison throughout the county.
He wasn’t arrested in January either because they wanted to trace his sources, or he’s dealing for lawyers and judges on the take. Toss a coin.
Another felony after the previous 12. Lucky 13? Do you think the judge might be able to figure out he will do it again?
