A Blountstown woman was arrested for possession of a controlled substance after she removed a package from inside her pants that contained a half ounce mixture of cocaine and suspected Fiakka.

Tammie Gentry, 49, was riding back from Quincy with Rounzell Brown Oct. 23 when Blountstown Police Officer Jody Hoagland stopped them for speeding on East Central Avenue.

In his report, the officer noted that he had information that Gentry was known to travel to Gadsden County to buy large amounts of an illegal narcotic known as "Fiakka," which was then distributed in Blountstown.

The car they were traveling in had also been "involved in numerous narcotics transactions" with Gentry, who is the vehicle's registered owner, according to the arrest report.

The officer discovered that Brown, who was driving, had a suspended license.

Brown later gave a statement that he and Gentry had been hanging out in an area of Blountstown known as "The Cut" that evening and then went to her home. He said he asked her to drive him to the store to get a beer.

They left and Gentry drove into Bristol and turned north onto CR 12. She pulled over and asked Brown to drive, telling him that she was tired.

Brown said he drove her to Quincy, where they first went to a convenience store. He said Gentry then took the wheel and went to two homes. He said he waited in the car while she went inside.

On the way home, she asked Brown to drive again. Gentry admitted to officers that she had picked up the suspected Fiakka in Quincy and was bringing it back to Blountstown, where she and others would smoke it.
