Traffic Stops Net Drugs

CLEWISTON, FL. (February 13, 2006) -- When Deputies from the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office Road Patrol Division stopped a white in color Oldsmobile
for running a stop sign they issued more than a traffic ticket. Sheriff
Ronnie Lee
reports that while the driver was guilty of a traffic infraction, his
passenger, 23 year old Larry Wayne Summers had a much more serious
charge. Summers was found to be in constructive possession of more than
75 pieces of crack cocaine. The traffic stop was made near the
intersection of Sonora and Francisco within 1000 feet of Clewiston High
School leading to a charge of cocaine possession with intent to sell
within 1000 feet of a school facility. Summers was arrested and booked
into the Hendry County Sheriff's Jail.

Another traffic stop by a member of the Hendry County Sheriff's Office Road
Patrol Division led to the arrest of 2 people on drug charges as Deputies
stopped a gold in color Chevy S-10 pickup truck driven by Amanda Denise
Hutchinson age 22 of 8016 N. Carey Rd. in Lithia Florida accompanied by
James G. Hutchinson age 25 8013 N.Carey Rd in Lithia Florida for running a
red traffic signal at the intersection of U.S.Highway 27 and Berner Road in
Clewiston at
approximately 12:33am on January 28, 2006. Actions by the 2 occupants
prompted Deputies being assisted by the Clewiston Police Department to
ask for permission to search the vehicle. Both Hutchinson's were charged
with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of
drug paraphernalia and booked into the Hendry County Jail.
