Suspicious vehicle leads to drug arrest in Ponce de Leon

On June 28, 2024, deputies from the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked in front of the Big Boss store in Ponce de Leon.

Upon arrival, an HCSO deputy observed a vehicle with its window down. In plain view inside the vehicle were digital scales and a plastic bag containing a substance resembling methamphetamine. After waiting for the vehicle’s owner for several hours without response, the deputy decided to tow the vehicle due to its suspicious nature.

During the inventory search conducted before towing, deputies uncovered additional drug paraphernalia and a larger quantity of methamphetamine. A wallet found in the center console identified the vehicle’s owner as David Everette.

Further investigation led deputies to locate Everette at a nearby rest area. A consensual search of his person revealed a crack rock in his pocket. Everette was promptly arrested and transported back to the Big Boss store for further investigation.

Reviewing surveillance footage from the store, deputies confirmed that Everette was the sole occupant of the vehicle and had driven to the store alone.

Once transported to the Holmes County Jail, Everette admitted to concealing additional contraband. A thorough search revealed approximately 18 grams of methamphetamine hidden in a plastic bag in his rectal area.

David Everette has been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
