Pasco Traffic Stop Nets Drug Arrest
The suspect was Tased when he tried to run away. The arrest was filmed by the crew for the television show Cops.
PASCO COUNTY – A driver who ran a stop sign was charged with drug crimes after deputies used a Taser on him when he tried to run away.
The incident was filmed by a television crew for the Cops show.
Cameron Ajax Jones, 34, of Hudson, was charged with possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, resisting officer without violence, and tampering with physical evidence.
The incident happened about 11:51 p.m. Wednesday (March 22) when Pasco sheriff’s Sgt. Kristina Irizzary stopped a Toyota Prius that, she said, ran a stop sign at Oakley Avenue and U.S.
19. Irizarry said she saw hypodermic needles in plain view so she asked Jones, the driver, to get out of the car. She found a plastic baggie in his pocket. He took it out of his pocket and put it on the trunk of the car. Inside was a clear rock-like substance inside another bag. When Irizarry tried to detain Jones, she said he pulled away, grabbed the bag and ran.
Jones threw the bag into the woods and after several verbal commands to stop were ignored, he was Tasered in the back by Pasco sheriff’s Cpl. Brett Morris and detained. Inside the plastic bag were 0.8 grams of field-tested positive meth, 0.9 grams of powdered heroin, and nine individually wrapped foil packets of heroin packaged for sale (<0 .1 gram each). Inside the car was a loaded
syringe that field tested positive for heroin. An additional 15 syringes were located inside the car, deputies said.
Jones was arrested in 2003 during “Operation Bahama Breeze” during which a number of defendants brought 55 pounds of cocaine a month from South Florida to Pasco and Pinellas counties for distribution, deputies said.
