This past Friday the 13th was definitely unlucky for three alleged drug traffickers from Florida.

Drug Task Force assistant commander David Harrell said the three men croseds paths with the Florala Police Department at approximately 5 p.m. that afternoon.

“Florala Police Officer Paul Adams made a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by William Corey Forrest,” Harrell said. “Officer Adams spoke with Forrest and the vehicle’s passengers, Michael Edwin Day and Eramis Ian Preyer. After noting that the three men seemed unduly nervous during the stop, Officer Adams walked his K-9 narcotics partner, Bella, around the vehicle.

“Bella indicated the presence of narcotics, and the subsequent search of the vehicle revealed large amounts of LSD in the trunk and on the passenger’s side floor board,” Harrell said.

Adams then contacted DTF agents, who responded to process the scene.

“LSD isn’t something we see on a regular basis here in Covington County,” Harrell said. “I appreciate Officer Adams’ work in this case as he helped remove a large quantity of a very dangerous narcotic.”

Forrest, 21; Day, 20, and Preyer, 23, all of Lynn Haven, Fla., were each charged with drug trafficking and possession of a drug paraphernalia, booked into the Covington County Jail and held on a $203,000 bond.
