MILTON — The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission filed these cases between July 28 and August 3 in Santa Rosa County:
Officer Hutchinson was pumping gas in his patrol vehicle when a truck pulled up next to him pulling a boat. He asked the driver if he had been fishing and he stated that they had caught some bass in Hurricane Lake. When Officer Hutchinson asked if he could see them, they were hesitant to show him the fish. The subject was in possession of 11 bass, which is over the daily bag limit. The subject received the charge of taking over the daily bag limit of black bass.
Lieutenant Hahr was patrolling in the Blackwater State Forest when he saw four subjects around a campfire in a primitive campsite. The subjects were drinking from fountain drink cups and a jug of orange juice was sitting near a cooler. An older man was present, but two young women and one young man appeared to be under the age of 21. The younger man took a bottle of vodka from the cooler and was drinking from the bottle in front of the older man. When Lieutenant Hahr approached the subjects and identified himself, the young women immediately dumped out their drinks. The younger man was 18 years of age and the two young women were 17. The younger man claimed two cannabis cigarettes and an additional container of cannabis found there. The older man received the charge of giving alcohol to a person under 21 and the others received the charge of possession of alcoholic beverages by a person under 21. The younger man also received the charge of possession of not more than 20 grams of cannabis.
