A Florida sheriff warned criminals that his deputies “will lock your butt up for being a drug dealer” after a “methed up” mother-daughter duo was arrested during a traffic stop.
“Well folks it’s time for this week’s episode of ‘Methed Up and Found Out’ as this past Saturday morning, Deputy David Guzman arrested Michell Cannon and her daughter Jazmine Cannon for being ‘Methed Up!!” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said in a Facebook post Monday.
The mother and daughter were busted Saturday morning when Brevard County Sheriff’s Deputy David Guzman pulled the pair over in Port St. John for an expired car tag, according to Ivey.
During the stop, Guzman and Deputy Darien Fedro saw “drug paraphernalia in plain view” in the car and conducted a more thorough search, according to Ivey. The deputies found a lockbox containing “a clear sandwich bag with a large amount of a crystal-like substance,” as well as scales to ostensibly weigh the drugs, and other “drug paraphernalia.”

The deputies determined that the more than 17 grams of meth allegedly belonged to mom Michell Cannon, leading to her being transported to the local jail, which the sheriff dubbed “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge.” She was booked on a $34,000 bond for trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of fentanyl, driving while license suspended with knowledge, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
