The second vehicle, driven by Felecia Darlene Jones (Morris’ girlfriend) of DeFuniak Springs, Florida, was stopped just west of the first stop, near Highway 90 West and Shoemaker Drive. After the DeFuniak Springs Police K-9 gave a positive alert on the vehicle, a search was conducted and did reveal Methamphetamine which was concealed inside of Jones’ purse. Due to the presence of a small child in the vehicle with Jones, the Department of Children and Family Services was requested to respond to the scene.
Both Morris and Jones were arrested and transported to the Walton County Jail. Morris is charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony. Jones is charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Child Neglect without Causing Great Harm.
Subsequent investigation revealed that both suspects had used Methamphetamine the night before at a local motel. The case is pending further investigation and no additional information is available at this time.
