Police Pull Over Stolen Vehicle in Islamorada, Find Cocaine and Man Hiding in Back Seat

A man and a woman are facing charges after police pulled over a stolen vehicle Friday night in Islamorada and discovered 36 grams of cocaine.

At around 10 p.m., Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies stopped a 2017 Nissan Versa at the 90 mile marker after running the license tag and finding it was reported stolen out of Key West.

After removing the driver and front-seat passenger from the car, deputies found a third person hiding on the floorboards in the back seat.

Deputies identified the driver as 22-year-old Megan Fedock of Key West. Authorities say they searched the vehicle and found a small amount of marijuana, prompting them to ask Fedock if she had any other contraband. She pulled a green bag out with multiple small bags, some with a white powdery substance inside and others with a green leafy substance inside. The substances tested positive as cocaine and marijuana.

Fedock told deputies the man hiding in the back seat was 40-year-old Laquenton Cade of Florida City. Fedock says Cade approached she and her boyfriend earlier and asked them if they wanted to go to Miami for the day.

Fedock says when they were being pulled over, Cade told her to hide the bag of drugs in her pants. Cade denied knowing anything about the stolen vehicle or the drugs. Two cigars stuffed with marijuana were found in the back seat with Cade, according to police.

Cade was placed under arrest and charged with possessing marijuana.

Fedock was arrested and charged with grand theft auto, trafficking in cocaine, possession of marijuana, and driving without a license.
