Wilson, Stephen Scott

Mary Esther, FL – A call for Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies to check the welfare of a man slumped over behind the wheel of a car at a Mary Esther restaurant ended with the driver facing trafficking charges for fentanyl, oxycodone, and methamphetamine.

A man later identified as 29-year old Stephen Scott Wilson, address unknown, was sleeping in his Toyota Camry in the Sonic parking lot around 1:30 a.m. August 12th.

Once the deputies was able to wake the driver, he attempted to place the vehicle in drive after repeated commands not to. Deputies then removed Wilson from the vehicle due to his furtive hand movements into the floorboard area of the vehicle and a strong odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle. Wilson was detained but continued to ignore verbal commands.

During a probable cause search, deputies discovered approximately 965 grams of Methamphetamine, 204 grams of Heroin, 167 grams of Fentanyl, 503 grams of a Hydrocodone mixture, two digital scales, a pill press, and marijuana.

Wilson was arrested on multiple felony drug trafficking charges. The investigation is ongoing according to the press release.
