SPRING HILL, FL – On Wednesday, December 02, 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, 33, who was using a Florida Identification Card. Feliciano indicated his driver’s license was suspended.

A search of his license indicated it had been suspended since 2009 for Driving Under the Influence. A passenger, Melissa Croy, 41, 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. Argo quickly alerted to the presence of narcotics.

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.
