A traffic stop carried out by an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s (OCSO) deputy for a faulty headlight led to the discovery of methamphetamine, THC extract, and a counterfeit driver’s license.

The OCSO deputy noticed a car on Navy Street in Fort Walton Beach with a faulty headlight. During a traffic stop, an OCSO K9 alerted on the car.

Deputies located a plastic bag with two jeweler’s bags containing methamphetamine, a digital scale, and multiple stamp bags.

OCSO reported they also found a mason jar smelling of marijuana that contained THC extract and a counterfeit California driver’s license.

30-year old Daniel Pensado of Shalimar admitted deputies that he had never had a valid driver’s license and used the fake one to cash checks.

Pensado is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a counterfeit driver’s license and having no valid driver’s license.

A passenger who was in the car at the time of the traffic stop, 39-year old Christopher Kooser of Fort Walton Beach, is also being charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
