The case against a Blountstown man arrested last month on drug charges has been dismissed.
Patrick Todd Lee, 40, was taken into custody following a routine traffic stop that turned up 46 Lortab pills. He was subsequently charged with drug trafficking.
According to the State Attorney’s Office, since his arrest, Lee has produced valid prescriptions for the medication found in his possession during the traffic stop. In addition, he provided medical records showing legitimate medical concerns, including a broken back, which justified the prescriptions.
