As he approached, a number of people left but a group of six people remained clustered around a parked van with its passenger door open. As the deputy approached he could smell the odor of marijuana.
Looking inside the van, the deputy saw marijuana in the center console. As he spoke with and conducted searches of the others in the group, he discovered one man with marijuana in his pocket and a second man with marijuana and 4.6 grams of cocaine in his pocket.
22 year old Alain Pico of Big Pine Key was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of marijuana. 30 year old Bradley Whetstone of Little Torch key was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, cocaine and drug paraphernalia. He was booked into jail.
