The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force discovered cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia during the execution of a narcotics search warrant at 1014 Airport Road  in Destin Wednesday.

The items were found during a search of the residence and a black 2006 Toyota 4-door.

Lawrence Posey is charged with the sale, manufacture, deliver, possession with intent to distribute Marijuana (4 counts) and Cocaine (2 counts).

A law enforcement record check of Posey revealed him to be a fugitive from the State of New York. Posey was previously convicted there on drug charges unrelated to his current drug charges in Florida.

He failed to show up for sentencing in New York and a warrant was issued for his arrest. The State of New York has placed a hold on Posey and plans to extradite him.

The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force is comprised of members of the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Niceville Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
