On Friday, the DTF went to 2810 Carver Avenue in Crestview, the residence of Marlin Anthony Reynolds, 32, to execute a search warrant, according to an OCSO news release.

Prior to executing the warrant, the DTF turned off the water supply to the house. When the team entered, they found both the toilet bowl and tank empty.

After removing the toilet, the team found Reynolds had tried to flush plastic bags of cocaine and methamphetamine, according to the arrest report.

The team recovered two plastic bags that field tested positive for cocaine and fentanyl. One bag had more than 40 grams of cocaine and the other had more than 8 grams of fentanyl, according to the report.

They also located more than 10 grams of cocaine in a bedroom dresser drawer, along with a pistol with an extended magazine and Reynolds’ drivers license. The pistol had been reported stolen in 2020, according to the release.

A search of Reynolds’ car turned up more than 500 grams of methamphetamine and packaging materials. Some of the meth was already packaged for distribution, according to the report.

Reynolds is charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, trafficking in fentanyl and trafficking in cocaine, along with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, tampering or destroying evidence and felony violation of probation.
