A 21-year-old Bradenton man was charged with two felony counts — Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Possession of Rock Cocaine — and a misdemeanor count of Possession of Marijuana Less than 20 Grams after Sarasota Police officers allegedly found the drugs and weapon in his vehicle during a traffic stop, the department has reported. At 3:15 a.m. on Jan. 21, patrol officers directed Tarvin Martin of 2108 14th Ave. East in Bradenton to pull over at the intersec- tion of 24th Street and Palmadelia Avenue in Sarasota after they saw his Toyota had illegal window tinting, a report says. When officers approached the car, Martin quickly exited it and tried to walk away, the report adds. After officers told Martin to return to the car, they smelled "an obvious odor of marijuana being emitted from the vehicle," the report continues. An aerial view shows the intersection of Palmadelia Avenue and 24th Street in north Sarasota.
