On 03-03-19 at approximately 3 p.m., Deputy William Harsanyi was conducting proactive patrol efforts in the area of Toucan Trail in Spring Hill when he observed a green Chevrolet Avalanche that appeared to be traveling above the posted speed limit of 30 mph.

Harsanyi conducted a Traffic Stop on the driver of the Avalanche at Toucan Trail and Parlow Avenue.

While speaking with the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, Anthony Luparell, Harsanyi detected an overpowering odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. When asked, Luparell openly admitted that he had marijuana in the center console of the vehicle.

Luparell was detained and advised of his rights.

A search of Luparell’s vehicle was conducted which yielded two plastic baggies of a green leafy substance. The green leafy substance later tested positive for the presence of THC. The total weight of the contents of both baggies was 1.03 grams.
