Kelcie Bernice Bickford, 34, was arrested yesterday morning after she was reportedly found slumped behind the wheel of a car stopped on the roadway on NE 39th Avenue.
At about 9:10 a.m., an Alachua County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to calls regarding a reckless driver in the vicinity of 2800 NE 39th Avenue. The silver Kia was reportedly traveling westbound and had driven into oncoming traffic several times. When the deputy arrived, the car was stopped in the roadway, and the driver was reportedly slumped behind the steering wheel.
The deputy approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, who was “awake and alert.” After receiving consent to search the vehicle, the deputy reportedly found multiple bags and containers with several different illegal narcotics.
Post Miranda, Bickford reportedly identified the following substances and equipment that were found in the car:
14 glass pipes used for smoking crack
0.85g of methamphetamines
1.5g of crack resin
6 used hypodermic needles containing bloodwash/heroin/fentanyl
56 generic Xanax
2.25 Adderall pills
5.2g crack cocaine
2 packages SUBOXONE sublingual film
Bickford reportedly admitted that she did not have prescriptions for any of the prescription drugs. She has been charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drug equipment, and four counts of possession of a controlled substance. Charges for possession of heroin/fentanyl are pending analysis by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Bickford is being held on $130,000 bail.
