Three Georgia men are locked up on drug-related charges in a Florida jail Wednesday morning.
Walton County, FL, deputies arrested Alec Connaughton, Brian Garner and Kenneth Collins at the Scenic Gulf Inn and Suites hotel on Scenic Gulf Drive in Destin.
It happened when two school resource deputies were assisting Walton County sheriff's office with spring break patrols Tuesday afternoon. The two deputies responded to a noise complaint call on the fourth floor. They smelled marijuana. They tracked the smell to a second-floor room.
The authorities stated in a press release that Connaughton, Garner and Collins, students on spring break from Georgia, occupied the room. The deputies said they found cocaine, marijuana, paraphernalia and alcohol.
Connaughton, 20, of Gainesville and Garner, 20, of Milledgeville were charged with possession of cocaine. Garner also was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Collins, 19, of Roswell, along with his roommates, was charged with possession of alcohol.
