A Blountstown man on probation for selling drugs is facing additional charges following his arrest Thursday.
Taurus Black, 30, has been charged with possession of crack cocaine and less than 20 grams of marijuana.
According to the Blountstown Police Department, Ofc. Patrick Crawford and Inv. Timothy Partridge went to a home on Azalea Drive just before noon to alert the owner of a dog that his pet had been picked up by the animal control officer. While looking for the dog’s owner, the officers noticed Black in the passenger seat of a car outside the home and asked if he knew if the man was home. While speaking with him, they noticed a small bag on the passenger side dash containing a white powder substance. A field test revealed the powder was cocaine, leading to Black’s arrest.
Once at the police station, a search turned up a pill bottle in Black’s jacket pocket with four large pieces of crack cocaine inside. Also discovered was a small plastic bag of marijuana.
It was noted in the police report that Black is currently out on bond for sale of a controlled substance in both Calhoun and Liberty counties.
Black remains in custody at the Calhoun County Jail.
