Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Last night while we all slept soundly in our beds our amazing Deputies were out peacekeeping on the streets of Cocoa doing everything they can to keep our community safe.
While on patrol Deputy Paul Hull Jr. observed a vehicle leaving the Cumberland Farms without stopping at the stop sign.
Deputy Hull conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and as he approached to talk to the occupants he noticed multiple open containers inside the vehicle. As Deputy Hull spoke to the driver, Andy Cardona-Gutierrez, he shared with Deputy Hull that he doesn’t have a driver license!!
As Deputy Hull was addressing the driver of the vehicle, Deputy Andrew Schoener approached the passenger side of the vehicle and noticed movement from the passenger, Audulio Gonzalez-Sanchez, who was observed reaching towards the back seat.
Deputy Schoener subsequently shined his flashlight into the car in an attempt to gain his attention, however Gonzalez-Sanchez was so distracted trying to hide his dope, that he didn’t even notice Deputy Schoener watching him through the window.
Ok, so in fairness, he may not be the sharpest villain we ever dealt with as once he saw Deputy Schoener and was taken out of the car, Gonzalez-Sanchez tried to covertly drop a bag containing a white powdery substance onto the ground.
Now if Gonzalez-Sanchez hadn’t already proved that he was not the sharpest tool in the shed by trying to hide dope right in front of our Deputies, his next act proved that he has zero common sense as he tried to resist arrest and quickly got to see what asphalt tastes like in Brevard County.
Once Gonzalez-Sanchez was cuffed and stuffed in the back of the patrol car our Deputies searched the backseat of the car where he was initially trying to hide something and found a container filled with multiple small baggies containing a white powder substance that had a total weight of approximately 8g.
The substance field tested positive for cocaine as did the bag that Gonzalez-Sanchez originally dropped in front of Deputy Schoener that contained approximately 10g of a white powdery substance as well.
To his credit, Cardona-Gutierrez was smart enough to just stand by the patrol car and not resist as our Deputies helped his friend to understand what happens if you resist the lawful orders of Brevard County Deputies.
Sadly though, in the end Cardona-Gutierrez who was the driver of the vehicle took the ride to jail as well, as he couldn’t pass a Field Sobriety Test.
Both Cardona-Gutierrez and Gonzalez-Sanchez got a free ride to “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge” in our brand new lodge courtesy shuttle that comes equipped with private isolation compartments for the maximum in guest privacy.
Cardona-Gutierrez was checked in by our booking agents on a $1,500 bond for DUI, Operating A Vehicle Without A Driver License, and Possession Of An Open Container while his little friend, Gonzalez-Sanchez was checked in with an exclusive room rate on a $6,000 bond for Possession Of Cocaine With The Intent To Sell, Resisting Without Violence, and Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia!
It’s really quite simple folks, first of all don’t break the law, but if you just can’t help yourself and you have that unbearable need to break the law, don’t do it in Brevard County, because in our county “if you mess around you are gonna find out!”
