A Coral Springs, Florida woman faces numerous drug charges after a traffic stop on Tuesday.
Deputy Gil Gonzalez was on patrol at the 103 mile marker at 1:45 a.m. when he spotted a dark colored sedan with a partially obscured license tag and a tag light out. He pulled it over at the 102 mile marker. There were two people inside. The female passenger, 29 year old Alexandra Martorano, said she was the owner of the vehicle.
Deputy Gonzalez could smell the odor of marijuana from the car’s windows as he spoke to the two people inside. As he asked the two to exit the vehicle, he noticed Martorano was very nervous and her hands were shaking.
Martorano produced a plastic bag with a white powder inside from inside her bra. The powder tested positive for cocaine. A search of the vehicle turned up many different types of pills, along with drug paraphernalia. Some of the pills could be identified, and included Xanax, Adderall and Benstropine Mesylate. More cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana were found as well as drug paraphernalia including ten different types of rolling papers and a digital scale. Many of the pills found in the vehicle could not be identified and will be sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for testing.
Martorano took responsibility for all of the illegal substances and illegal items. She was arrested. She was charged with possession of a harmful new legend drug without a prescription; possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of a felony amount of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
