Tuscaloosa Police Find Guns, Drugs and Cash in Car at Boat Landing
A search of a vehicle parked at Tuscaloosa's Riverview Boat Landing Sunday night yielded a large amount of drugs, three guns and several hundred dollars cash, according to a police spokesperson.
In a Monday morning Facebook post, a representative of the Tuscaloosa Police Department said midnight shift officers were patrolling the city around 11:20 p.m. Sunday when they noticed a vehicle at the boat landing parked with its engine running.
The TPD officer approached the car, and its driver complied immediately by disclosing there were weapons in the vehicle and waiting for further instruction.
According to the police department, officers discovered three guns and ammunition, prescription drugs, marijuana, THC edibles and scattered cash scattered inside the vehicle and closed in a bag inside.
One of the occupants of the vehicle, 29-year-old Lakendrick Ryshard Robertson, was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of marijuana, failure to affix a tax stamp and possession of a controlled substance.
Robertson was not listed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail log Monday morning and may have been released on bond.
TPD noted that the investigation is ongoing and may result in more charges being filed in the future.
