Bay County Sheriff's officials arrested five suspects during three recent drug busts

Wednesday, Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford announced the arrests of five suspects during three recent drug busts.

He says these arrests were made within days of each other. The cases are unrelated but all the suspects could be facing serious jail time.

The first drug arrest happened on September 27th. Investigators arrested 35-year-old Shawn Mosley of Panama City.

They say he was found with approximately 2,800 Xanax pills, 154 pills of oxycodone, and a small amount of cocaine. Investigators believe the Xanax pills were laced with fentanyl. Investigators also seized $8,828 in cash. Mosley is facing with several charges including trafficking in fentanyl and possession of alprazolam (Xanax) with intent to distribute.

The next day, September 28th, 37-year-old Darnell Riggins of Panama City Beach and Quantavious Fuller of Albany, Georgia were arrested in Panama City Beach.

They were found with multiple drugs including a pound and a half of crystal meth. Investigators also found 110 assorted pills some of which had no imprints on them. Officials say field tests of the pills showed positive results for powerful opiates such as fentanyl and heroin. 

Officials say the pills will be tested further to identify these substances. Riggins and Fuller have been charged with a number of charges including trafficking more than 200 grams of methamphetamine and trafficking more than four grams of heroin.

The last drug bust happened on September 29th in Panama City Beach.

Thirty-five-year-old Jason Plumadore, a felon on inmate release, and 31-year-old David Sharpe were arrested by investigators. Officials said there were roughly 56 grams of heroin and two firearms with those men.

Both men violated their probation. Plumadore was charged with many charges including possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony. Sharpe was charged will multiple charges including possession of heroin.

"These people will be facing very serious charges but I'm very proud of the work our special investigations does to get this stuff off our streets," said Sheriff Ford. "It's critical that we get this stuff off the streets because it can be deadly, it has proven to be."

According to the Bay County Sheriff's officials, all suspects still in custody. 

Even though there is no evidence to prove a connection between the cases at this time, investigators are still search for more answers while the investigations continue.

According to Sheriff Ford, some of these men are facing trafficking charges because they had more than four grams of fetanyl or heroin, which could mean seven years in prison minimum if sentenced.
