An Ocala man was jailed early Friday morning after he was stopped by a Marion County sheriff’s deputy for a license tag light violation.
The deputy conducted the traffic stop in the 15000 block of S. Hwy. 441 on a Chevrolet two-door vehicle. His investigation revealed that the driver, 23-year-old Forrest Daniel Taylor, had attached a trailer tag to the vehicle because it wasn’t registered, a sheriff’s office report states.
During a vehicle inventory after Taylor was taken into custody, the deputy located methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Taylor was transported to the Marion County Jail and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession and/or use of drug equipment, failure to register a motor vehicle and attaching registration or license plate not assigned. He was being held on $4,000 bond and his next court date hasn’t yet been set, jail records show.
