Woman arrested twice in 24 hours for drugs in Walton County

SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla—A woman arrested Thursday for trafficking a hallucinogen is locked up a second time just hours after bonding out.

Stacey Mae Adkinson, 21, of Ponce de Leon, was arrested a second time March 7, along with James David Martin Sanders, 30, of Santa Rosa Beach, for drug trafficking.

March 6 just before 10 pm., a Walton County Sheriff’s K9 Deputy stopped a blue Toyota FJ Cruiser pulling a U-Haul trailer for speeding on U.S. 331 South.

When the deputy approached the car, he noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

During the stop, K9 Drago conducted a free-air sniff of the vehicle and trailer and gave a positive alert.

A search uncovered more than $8,400 in cash along with 93 grams of DAB (concentrated dose of cannabis extract), 19.4 grams of marijuana edibles, two vape pens with two THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) cartridges, 4.3 grams of psychedelic mushrooms, two grams of ketamine, 251.3 grams of marijuana, .3 grams of LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide or acid), 177 grams of synthetic marijuana, two Clonazepam and drug paraphernalia consisting of a bong, individual baggies and rolling papers.

Both Sanders, the driver of the SUV, and Adkinson were charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of a hallucinogen, possession of a synthetic narcotic, possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Just hours before on March 6, Adkinson was booked into the Walton County Jail on an active warrant for felony charges of trafficking in LSD and using a two-way communication device to commit a felony.

She was given a $25,000 bond an hour later and was re-arrested the following morning during the March 7 traffic stop.

She now has three more felony and two misdemeanor charges added to the two felony charges from March 6.
