Police Suspected FSU QB Deondre Francois Sold Marijuana From Apartment

Police Suspected FSU QB Deondre Francois Sold Marijuana From Apartment”

He's still rehabbing but has bigger problems to worry about.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Tallahassee Police received an anonymous tip that Francois had approximately two pounds of marijuana in his residence, and executed a search warrant on April 12 with the expectation to find what the report terms as "on-going criminal activity" that was consistent with individuals who have the intent to sell. That kicked off the investigation.

Police conducted a search of Francois's apartment last Thursday and found 17 grams of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia near his bed. The 21-year-old Francois was not arrested, and entered a pre-trial diversion program. The player reportedly said, "Can't smoke right now", and he allegedly said that the marijuana belonged to his girlfriend. Blaming your girlfriend? Solid pivot Deondre. Authorities searched Francois' garbage on four separate occasions during the investigation, according to the search warrant.

Not exactly the kind of stuff you want to have in your trash if you're trying to seem like you're not using drugs.

The specifics surrounding Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois' citation for marijuana possession earlier this month are nothing short of freakish.

The evidence obtained through the garbage searches was enough to get the warrant.

Francois worked this spring in a limited fashion while recovering from a knee injury he suffered last season.

"He's still with our football team", Taggart said after FSU's spring game. On Tuesday, the Orlando Sentinel revealed that Francois was the subject of a two-month drug investigation. He could also be asked to participate in a substance abuse program.

"He's got to be smart about who he's around and what he's around, and make good decisions", Willie Taggart said at the time of the original report.
