Morgan County authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a Buckhead man who allegedly fled a traffic stop from a vehicle that contained both suspected marijuana and suspected cocaine.
According to Morgan County Sheriff’s Office reports, Curtis Donquale Robinson, 39, is wanted on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, obstruction, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, window tint violation, handicap parking space violation and failure to signal.
A Morgan County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempted to stop Robinson while he was allegedly driving a Ford Expedition on Fifth Street in Madison with heavily tinted windows. Reports state the Expedition stopped in the parking lot of R&B Cafe and Robinson exited the vehicle and fled on Burney Street.
The officer attempted to stop Robinson but was unsuccessful.
The officer returned to the vehicle and, reports state, smelled marijuana in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle produced 13 bags of marijuana divided into one ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth of an ounce bags. An ounce of suspected marijuana was also found in a Mason jar.
The officer also reported finding 14 grams of suspected crack cocaine in a plastic bag along with a digital scale and 18 empty plastic bags.
In the center console of the vehicle, the officer reported finding a partially smoked marijuana cigarette and a $50 bill.
The officer also reported that while he was at the scene of the traffic stop, a relative of Robinson who owns the vehicle called Morgan County Dispatch to report that the vehicle had been stolen. The relative told dispatch that someone had stolen the vehicle while Robinson was driving the vehicle.
The officer called the vehicle owner and told her that the vehicle had been involved in a traffic stop and the driver had left the scene.
The officer captured an image of Robinson from his Facebook page to identify him as the alleged driver.
