Troopers hit the jackpot Wednesday when they arrested a man driving a methamphetamine lab on wheels, who had drugs tucked away in his armpit, grew marijuana in a tub and was on probation violation for murder.I wonder what Mr. McComas defense strategy will be at trial. Anyone have suggestions?
Records at the Florida Department of Corrections indicate McComas served more than six years in jail for a 1991 murder charge and currently is under a 10-year probation.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers at 3:50 p.m. stopped Cocoa resident Charles Leon McComas, 46, on Interstate 95 near Mims, for a faulty license tag light on his RV. During the routine traffic stop near mile marker 228, troopers discovered that McComas had an outstanding warrant for his arrest from Suwannee County for violation of probation for second degree murder.
FHP called the Brevard County Sheriff's Office for assistance after a search of McComas' vehicle revealed paraphernalia and chemicals used in manufacturing methamphetamine. "Troopers are not equipped to handle hazardous materials," said trooper Kim Miller.
Also found in the RV were two rifles, ammunition, four marijuana plants growing in a bathtub and other drug-related items.
McComas and transported him to the Brevard County Jail Complex. While officials booked McComas at the jail, a baggie containing meth fell from his armpit.
McComas is charged with trafficking, manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine, violation of probation on second-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, introduction of contraband to a jail facility and possession of drug paraphernalia and cultivation of marijuana.
