Traffic Stop Yields Five Arrests, Cocaine, Heroin, Meth and a Gun

SPRING HILL – The Sheriff’s Office is reporting the arrest of five individuals, after a routine traffic stop led to the discovery of a variety of drugs and a gun.

According to officials, just after 8 p.m., Deputies Anthony Belmonte and Blake Vanderford conducted a traffic stop on a green Buick at the intersection of Kenlake Avenue and Waycross Drive.

Deputies stopped the vehicle because the front seat passenger was not wearing a safety belt, and the tag not assigned to any vehicle.

When the driver of the vehicle pulled over, the front seat passenger, later identified as 33-year-old Jacob Murty, opened the passenger door and fled on foot.  Murty failed to comply with Deputy Vanderford’s commands to stop but he was soon apprehended and brought back to the vehicle.

During the chase, Murty threw an unknown black object on the ground, which was later determined to be a loaded 9mm handgun.

A search of Murty’s person revealed a prescription bottle which contained a clear plastic baggie with “eight ball” logos on it.  The baggie contained a white crystal-like substance which later tested positive for methamphetamine and weighed 0.6 grams.  The prescription bottle also contained two yellow pills, which were later identified as Alprazolam, a schedule four drug.

Numerous deputies arrived on the scene and began interviewing the other occupants of the vehicle.

Deputies spoke with the driver of the vehicle 36-year-old Joshua Beard, who immediately stated “I haven’t had a license in a while.”  Beard allowed deputies to search the vehicle, where they located a black backpack with a baking tin inside.  Inside the baking tin, deputies located a white, powdery substance, which later tested positive for cocaine.  The backpack also contained a ten-pack of Sudafed and a small scale with a black, tar-like substance on it.  The tar-like substance tested positive for heroin.


On the floorboard of the vehicle, deputies located a metal spoon with a black tar-like substance on it, a green silicone container, with a black tar-like substance on it, a metal spoon with a pink chalk-like substance on it, a clear glass smoking pipe, and numerous plastic baggies.  One non-capped syringe, three makeshift tourniquets, and three capped syringes were located in other parts of the vehicle.

Jacob Murty is charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, Poss. of a Controlled Substance, Resisting Arrest, and Poss. of a Firearm by a convicted felon.

Joshua Beard is charged with driving without a license.

25-year-old Ashley McGinley is charged with Possession of Paraphernalia.

39-year-old Robert Carr is charged with Possession of Paraphernalia.

30-year-old Hillary Quick is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Poss. of Paraphernalia, and Poss. of Contraband to the Jail, after detention deputies located a small amount of Tar Heroin in her undergarments.

  • Obviously you are all more concerned with how people spell, than what they say…which leads me to believe that you are pretty egotistical! Who knew this was English 101! Do you all realize you have faults too? Nobody is perfect! So you want your “lovely” town cleaned up…start calling Hernando County crime stoppers. You might even make $1000.00 for doing it…then you can donate it to help support literacy programs.

  • I was a junkie with a conscious. Clean now a year. And although I tend to cringe when reading newcomb or the other obnoxious characters on here but I agree. Take them out back and put them out of their misery . They’re dead already.

  • No one has mentioned the role of the medical community getting normal people hooked on drugs with painkillers. Volunteered at the VA in West Palm Beach and once the legal supply was cut off via a prescription some of our brave veterans resorted to illegal wherever they could get them. It’s likely that many others have been introduced to drugs with a well meaning doctor prescribing pain medication then cutting off the flow.

  • I agree wit Gator
    As for the drug epidemic in this Classy and not Trashy Spring Hill we all have our own habits….many drink some blaze and others do other things but talkn shit an belittling these people doesn’t do anything but show what kind of person you really are…most of you think that your better than they are but kickn these people while thier down doesn’t make you better than them…all it does is show what kind of person you are. .if you gotta belittle these people make yourself feel superior to them then your just as lost as they are…like Gator said “” He without sin cast the first stone””

  • If we legalize cannabis they’ll be able to catch more and more of real drug possessions like these!! And I can’t agree more with the punishment for addicts to be rehabilitation and follow up counseling.

  • Robert I agree 100%. Tom you might want to consider making this a change in your upcoming articles. Being from a LEO family it would be in your best interest as well as to those who serve to keep LEOs names unmentioned. They are all putting their lives on the line to protect us, it would be a good idea to reciprocate. Thanks.

    Thursday, 6 August 2015, 1:13 pm
  • Please leave the deputies names out of your news articles. I am a retired Leo just moved to the area. You are unintentionally putting those officer’s/deputies at great risk when you identify them. The HCSO should also ask for this courtesy. I am understanding to the public right to know but I think most people would understand after just one criminal goggles your name and then come by your house to do harm to you or a family member. Please consider this request for the safety of our heroic first responders who put their life on the line every day so we can live a dignified live. Thanks for your service also of making us more aware of what’s happening around us.

  • For any “HELP” to work, you first have to be ready and willing to change! And that means changing everything that’s bad or wrong around you. This includes some if not all of your so-called friends, maybe even staying away from certain family members, your hangouts, certain habits, etc. You have to make a commitment to work hard at changing, 24-7. And if you help yourself first, others will begin to see that you are really trying, and support will come your way.

    Thursday, 6 August 2015, 9:41 am
  • Gator and becca totally agree. Drugs will get anybody. Good or bad. Every one has done things that they are ashamed of and wouldn’t want there family and kids to know

  • Spring Hill has turned into a real sewer full of junkies and dirt bags, I know that every city has their share of crime but Spring Hill is general seems to be overflowing with dirt bags like these and it’s getting worse.

    Wednesday, 5 August 2015, 6:18 pm
  • Where in the article does it say they are from Spring Hill?

    Wednesday, 5 August 2015, 6:06 pm
    • They are ALL from Spring Hill with lengthy records; drug trafficking, food stamp fraud, battery, more drugs and VOP. Joshua Beard was just featured on RNRF on 5/18, for some sort of theft on Bradford St. in Spring Hill.
      This group is innocent until proven guilty, of course.
      As far as I can see they have been terrorizing Spring Hill for at least the last 5 years if not longer.
      These are our neighbors.

      Wednesday, 5 August 2015, 7:34 pm
      • Interesting Joshua Beard hasn’t even lived in Florida for five years and he was actually arrested in May for the same charge~driving without a license…get your facts straight before you get sued cupcake!

          • Went through the archives and everything…there is nothing there!Stop spreading lies or you will be sued! He has been arrested twice and both times were for driving without a license! Just because he was around a bunch of Spring Hill loser’s doesn’t mean he is one!

            Wednesday, 12 August 2015, 6:18 pm
  • Mr. or Ms. Commonsenseisdead,
    Thanks for agreeing with me. If I made a general comment that this crew was scum than I would have been accused of not knowing the facts that possibly one of the arrested was a church goer, family person etc., that just got hooked up with the wrong folks.
    There are many people in our community who will not accept the morale decay of our citizenship and the role that drugs play in that decay. Ten years ago many in Hernando Cty. & Spring Hill in particular were in denial on the drug scene that was already flourishing here. Now all you have to do is look at the sheriffs arrests and the real story comes into focus. We have a overt problem just like many other communities.
    If my words and thoughts are what is wrong with America we DO have a big problem.

  • Sorry as I know the liberals will be coming out of the woodwork but these 5 model citizens are evidence of what America is becoming. I dare to bet if anyone of them holds a real job and bet more than a couple of them are on the public dole.
