A Florida woman’s attempt to hide fentanyl, cocaine, oxycodone, and marijuana in a toilet didn’t pan out when Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies were executing a narcotics search warrant at a home on Crescent Circle near Fort Walton Beach.

According to investigators, it started when members of the OCSO Special Investigations Section Narcotics Unit spotted 32-year-old Timothy Knox coming out of the home on June 23rd carrying a black bag.

Deputies say Knox got into his car, and into the rear driver’s side passenger compartment. Inside the car investigators located a firearm and found the black bag contained nearly 45 grams of crack cocaine and eleven grams of cocaine powder.

Knox’s room at the home revealed a safe with 27 grams of crack cocaine, 26 grams of cocaine powder, and approximately 507 grams of marijuana.
