Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois was not arrested despite having a search warrant executed at his home that turned up 17 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia on Wednesday, but Tallahassee Police still released details from a two-month long surveillance of Francois’ residence.
Police were reportedly tipped off about drug activity at the house and seized multiple items they believed to be connected to drug activity, according to Karl Etters of the Tallahassee Democrat.
The police made four separate evidence grabs between Feb. 27 and executing their search warrant on Wednesday night. They claim to have confiscated a grinder, baggies and container. Nine blunts were recovered a month later followed by an iPad, more baggies and raw marijuana on April 3.
However, police wouldn’t indicate how they came about those items or where exactly they were recovered. But when the 17 grams was uncovered on Wednesday night, Francois said he knew about it but claimed that it wasn’t his, reportedly indicating that it belonged to his pregnant girlfriend.
Still, the police simply recommended Francois be entered into a diversion program. That course of action will still have to be authorized by the state’s attorney and then signed off on by Francois, but a police spokesman indicated they feel comfortable it will be accepted.
