Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a 20-year-old Tallahassee man March 8 after discovering him sleeping in his vehicle next to a convenience store with more than 50 grams of marijuana and Schedule 4 prescription pills in an unmarked container, according to Sheriff David Harvey.

Logan Daniel Runyan was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of a Schedule 4 narcotic.

“Deputy Will Hudson responded to a complaint from the convenience store that a motorist had come into the store demanding to use the telephone before returning to his vehicle and falling sleeping next to the store on U.S. Highway 319 and Highway 267,” said Sheriff Harvey. “During Deputy Hudson’s effort to wake up the suspect, he observed marijuana in plain view in an open duffel bag.”

The deputy became concerned about the welfare of the suspect and entered the vehicle through an unlocked door to wake him. During the inventory of the vehicle, an unlabeled prescription pill bottle was discovered with a variety of pills inside.

Two baggies contained a total of 53.5 grams of marijuana. A scale and sandwich bags consistent with distribution of marijuana were also discovered.

Runyan was taken to the Wakulla County Jail without incident. He was released March 9 on a $5,000 bond. Sgt. Jeremy Johnston also investigated.

    To Factual: thank you for what needed to be said for the past 30 or so years. There have been too many that want to use race to have a pity party, that includes whites to. Stop being a fool (IE: A RACIST, look around you, everyone is becoming a hybrid. Your own grandparents maybe have some white or whatever else in their bloodline, mine does. I am an American and proud of it.

    TIR, you racist fool, of course you understand his point, you're a fellow racist. You bring race into EVERYTHING, it's obvious you have racial issues you need to seek counseling for. You probably blame everything on mean ole whitey, instead of recognizing your own shortcomings.

    For starters the cops are making this look as something its not. The pills were aspirins that charge was dropped, also the cop did an illegal search and there was no duffel bag. There was 1 bag of weed and it was a nickel thats not even enough for a charge. He didn't have to pay no bail. And he was at the gas station waiting for his cell phone to be brought to him when he dozed off for 5 minutes. Seriously don't you people have better things to do than judge others all day?

    Let's just face the statistics. Yea he was white and got caught. He's a moron. Blacks, statistically speaking, committ more crimes thus are caught more which in turn makes them the population in prison. Whites committ crimes also and do get caught as well. Blacks do not have the "family dynamic" that most whites have and are not raised the way they need to be. Some Whites are in the same boat, just not as many as blacks. Ultimately, if you want to moan and play the race card, the African American race needs to do some soul searching and better themselves as a people. Just watch what Bill Cosby and the like has to say about our race. He's right. FYI...I am a proud black man.

    It's not the bloodline! It does not always go back to family, sometimes it the company that you keep that is the bad blood!

    Observer, I am well aware that you are not racist. I understand your point completely. The racist whites on this site don't get it because they choose not to get it.
