🚨Another gun off the street! 🚨

On April 17th around 1AM, Officer Morrison pulled into the 1st Avenue South End-Zone and observed a vehicle with an expired tag in front of him.

After stopping the vehicle, the owner was unable to produce his drivers license or insurance card. He said it may be “in the trunk”. Once he opened the door, Officer Morrison noticed a loaded handgun in the drivers side door compartment.

Mr. Payne did not have a CCW permit and admitted to having illegal drugs in the vehicle.

The gun was a 9MM Taurus with an extended magazine holding 30 rounds. There was also a second magazine with 12 rounds. 5 grams of marijuana and a glass pipe with marijuana residue were also found inside the vehicle.

Mr. Payne is not a resident of Jacksonville Beach.
