Tactical Team arrests three on drug and gun charges
Boca Raton, FL – On Tuesday, November 12, at about 3:30 p.m., a red Hyundai rental vehicle caught the attention of a member of the Boca Raton Police Department’s Tactical Team as the car backed into a parking spot in Glades Plaza, 2200 West Glades Road. As officers watched, a male walked over to the Hyundai, got into the back seat then got out a short time later and returned to his car. Officers spoke with the male who said he was trying to solicit the services of a prostitute.
The driver of the Hyundai left the parking lot and officers stopped the car for a traffic infraction. The driver, Carey Godwin Jr., told officers he had a gun in the center console. Officers took possession of the unloaded gun. Officers questioned Godwin and his two passengers, Marlon McKay and Brandon Montgomery, who all gave conflicting statements.
Officers saw a piece of copper from a cleaning pad and a couple of small, white pieces of a substance they believed to be crack cocaine, which once tested, proved to be cocaine. They also found a pill bottle which contained several clear capsules with transparent pieces inside. These pieces were tested and proved to be Methylone. Officers found a backpack and plastic shopping bag in the trunk of the car. Inside these items, they found 100 small plastic baggies, a digital scale, empty capsules and a clear pill bottle which also contained capsules of Methylone. Godwin claimed ownership of the backpack and receipts inside the shopping bag were linked to Godwin.
Officers arrested all three males and charged Godwin with possession of a firearm during a felony, possession of a scheduled substance and possession of paraphernalia. McKay was charged with possession of a scheduled substance, possession of a firearm during a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Montgomery was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia.
