DESTIN — An early morning traffic stop on Saturday led to the arrests of three passengers and the seizure of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, according to a press release from Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office.

An OCSO deputy conducted a traffic stop around 8 a.m. Saturday on a 2010 Nissan on Mattie Kelly Boulevard. Two individuals in the back were detained during the course of the stop. One of the passengers, Lachelle Timmers, 28, had an active warrant for failure to appear. The driver of the Nissan handed over Timmers' belongings including a backpack and a clear bag containing coloring pens. As the bags were being handed over by the driver, a deputy noticed a clear glass pipe and dark colored glass pipe laying on the floor of the back seat.

Two other passengers, 31-year-old Andrew Keyes of Santa Rosa Beach, and 22-year-old Christopher Wohrman of Destin, were arrested for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia.

The passengers were removed from the vehicle as deputies conducted a search. In the glove box, they found a "skull marijuana metal grinder," which Keyes said was his. Keyes also said he had a loaded needle in the right pocket of his cargo shorts. Another unused needle was found in his left cargo pocket. A clear plastic baggie containing methamphetamine was found in his shirt pocket. Keyes later said he had forgotten the drug was in his shirt pocket and that he would've used it had he known it was there. He said the substance was "ice," also known as the purest form of methamphetamine, according to the arrest report.

While deputies were searching the vehicle, Wohrman said he wanted to grab his backpack. Deputies got consent to search the backpack and found a black, metal grinder containing marijuana in one of the zipped pockets. In the area where Wohrman was sitting in the car, deputies also found methamphetamine around the seat and inside a red straw.

During the search, deputies also found an electronic scale and literature on how to make meth.
