On 12-02-2020 at 12:52 a.m., a Hernando County Sheriff’s deputy on proactive patrol conducted a traffic stop on the driver of a vehicle traveling on Commercial Way.

The driver was identified as Julio Feliciano H/M DOB/01-11-1987 using the Florida Identification Card he provided. Feliciano indicated his driver’s license was suspended.

A query of his license indicated it had been suspended since 2009 for Driving Under the Influence.

A passenger, Melissa Croy W/F DOB 07-06-1979, was also detained at the scene.

Deputy G. Locke and his K-9 partner Argo soon arrived on scene to perform a drug sniff of the vehicle.

Upon searching Feliciano, deputies located two clear baggies, one of which contained a white crystal substance later identified as methamphetamine.

Feliciano was arrested on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Knowingly Driving while License is Suspended/Revoked.

Deputies then searched Croy and found several items that tested positive for fentanyl and methamphetamine.

Croy was charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Both Feliciano and Croy were transported to the Hernando County Detention Center.

Feliciano’s bond was set at $8,000, while Croy’s bond was set at $16,000.
