Nemiah Liam Barnett, 33, was charged with trafficking drugs and evidence tampering, both felony offenses.

Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Andros Road in Holt around 11 p.m. Wednesday after someone dialed the emergency number and then disconnected.

A deputy spotted Barnett walking down the middle of the road, carrying a bag with a white substance in his right hand.

When Barnett spotted the patrol car he began walking faster and crossed the road.

The deputy made contact and watched as Barnett turned and threw the item over his shoulder.

The discarded bag was found to contain methamphetamine as well as another small bag inside with more of the drug, totaling about 28 grams.

An additional plastic bag of meth, a large amount of cash and two cell phones were found on Barnett.

The investigation is ongoing.
