Florida Keys males arrested for drug trafficking after K9 finds hiding place
MARATHON, Florida – Two marathon men face multiple drug charges, including trafficking in fentanyl after a Monroe County Sheriff K9 found their hiding place during a traffic obstruction.
Christopher Thomas Flingos Sr., 51, and Michael Richard Goode, 45, are both charged with trafficking in fentanyl and cocaine. Goode is also charged with possession of ecstasy.
A Monroe County MP stopped his car after allegedly driving in a 45-mile zone with illegal window tinting. The driver, Flingos, was also unbuckled, the MPs said.
Goode also had an arrest warrant for driving an unregistered motor vehicle.
K9 Coral of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office responded to the traffic obstruction and alerted MPs to the drugs in their car.
About 1.2 ounces of fentanyl, 1.1 ounces of cocaine, and five ecstasy pills were found in the car. MPs said some of the drugs were found in a styrofoam bowl with instant noodles.
Both men were arrested.
