JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A suspected drug dealer was arrested Monday on multiple drug charges following a traffic stop on North Liberty Street, The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said. 

Investigators said they saw David Reynard Wright, 34, making hand-to-hand transactions in the Jaya’s Crab Shack and More parking lot. 

Wright was later pulled over driving at high speeds on North Liberty Street, where he presented a Florida ID card instead of a driver’s license, police said. According to the police report, when the officer asked Wright if he had a valid driver’s license, he replied, “My license is suspended. Don’t you remember me from the other day?”

Wright’s car was searched after he admitted to officers that he “had a little weed,” according to the police report.

According to the police report, when officers searched Wright’s car, they found a purple glove with a plastic bag inside stuffed with nine individually wrapped baggies of marijuana, a Newport cigarette box with 29 morphine sulfate pills inside it, which tested positive for opiates, and a cigar tube containing 11 white, rock-like substances that tested positive for cocaine.

Police said Wright admitted to selling the marijuana but denied all knowledge of the morphine pills.

Wright was arrested without incident, police said.
