‘Trips Ahoy!’ Wanted Florida man busted after trying to swim away from Deputies


MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. – (MCSO) – It wasn’t enough that 33-year old Manuel Mustelier was transporting THC edibles, and LSD through Martin County. Mustelier, of Orlando, also had outstanding warrants. When deputies attempted a traffic stop on the car Mustelier was driving, he bailed out on foot, jumped into a pond, and began swimming.

He was fast, but deputies were faster. Mustelier paddled all the way to the other side of the pond where he was taken into custody by an awaiting deputy.

Back at the car, deputies located a large box of goodies. A closer look at the packages gave them a better idea of why Mustelier was in such a hurry. In addition to the LSD, Mustelier had more than 29-pounds of THC edibles sealed in packages that often appeal to children.

The “Trips Ahoy” flavor was the biggest clue as to the packages actual content. But that’s not all. Manuel Mustelier was wanted on warrants out of Orange County for Attempted Kidnapping, Battery by Strangulation, Trespassing on a Construction Site and Resisting Arrest.

Manuel Mustelier was arrested and charged with Possession and Obstruction of Justice without Violence.
