Teen arrested with marijuana, LSD during traffic stop

An Ocala teen was initially pulled over for speeding but was later found with marijuana and LSD during a search of the vehicle.

A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy observed a four-door vehicle traveling near SW 16th Ave on June 7. The deputy reported the vehicle was traveling more than 60 mph in a posted 45 mph zone. A traffic stop for speeding was conducted and the odor of burnt marijuana was smelled coming from the glove compartment of 18-year-old Tati’yanna Fugate’s vehicle. Fugate admitted she did have marijuana in the vehicle which was later located in a glove compartment. She admitted she did not have a valid medical marijuana card, according to the sheriff’s report.

A search of the vehicle located two clear plastic bags containing a green leafy substance which field tested positive for marijuana. Two glass pipes with residue, one clear and one blue and yellow were also located. Both field tested positive for marijuana. A small multi-colored grinder with residue was also located in the glove compartment which also tested positive, according to the report.

A red backpack was found containing a small black container with two small square connected tabs inside. The tabs field tested positive for lysergic acid diethylamide, known colloquially as LSD or acid. Fugate admitted all items found belonged to her, the report stated.

Fugate was arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail. She was booked on June 7 with a bond set at $3000. Fugate was released on bond on June 8 and charged with marijuana possession of not more than 20 grams, drug possession and drug possession without a prescription.
