MANATEE — A 31-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night for drug possession after deputies pulled over a car for illegal window tinting, the sheriff’s office reports.
Timothy Dixon was a passenger in the car, which was pulled over in the 800 block of 21st Avenue West at 4:50 p.m.
Deputies found six 30-milligram Oxycodone pills in a cellophane wrapper in Dixon’s right pocket during the search, the report stated.
After being read his rights, Dixon told deputies he had just bought the pills at City Walk apartments for $10 apiece, according to the report. He also told deputies that he has a prescription for the Oxycodone, but lost it.
Dixon was released Thursday from Manatee County jail after posting a $1,000 bond.
The driver was issued a verbal warning for the tinting.
