An alert off-duty lawman in Crestview, Fla., spotted a stolen C7 Corvette on Wednesday, leading to the arrest of the man and woman inside the car.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over the blue Stingray on an access road behind the Burger King in Crestview near I-10 in northwest Florida.
Then Crestview Police Department drug dog “K-9 Sonic” checked out the Corvette and alerted to the odor of controlled substances, with a subsequent search locating methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Now, Brandon Pursley, 24, of Crestview and Amber Barrow, 25, face charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle and possession of a controlled substance. Pursley was also charged with driving with a revoked driver’s license.
