On April 13, 2011, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations narcotics officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for a traffic offense.

During the stop, investigators noticed a large Home Theater System box in the back of the vehicle.

A BCSO K-9 officer was called to the scene and the dog alerted on the vehicle for the presence of narcotics.

A search of the vehicle revealed over twenty pounds of high grade marijuana and a pound of powdered hashish, an extract of marijuana.

The driver of the vehicle, Britton Cook, DOB 2-6-52, of 2354 Pretty Bayou Drive, Panama City, was arrested and charged with

    Well it's about time.I know Panama and the surrounding area is just crawling with drug heads. If yall can catch them with the stuff on them, that will cut down on so many of our kids falling victim to this epidemic. The more of that stuff yall can get and take off the streets the better it will be for all of us. Thank You Bay county officers !!!
