Deputy Kelly Simpkins of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office patrols an alleyway behind several businesses that has become a hangout for drug addicts. A male is seen walking in the area and Deputy Simpkins makes contact with the man. The male suspect tells the deputy he was headed home and submits to a search of his person after the deputy learns he has priors for drug arrests. When the man kicks off his shoe, a crack stem falls out and he tries to push it under the car before anyone sees it. Not being fooled for a minute, Deputy Simpkins recovers the stem and the man begins to make excuses as to why it is in his possession.
