When deputies entered the wooded lot, they noticed several tents and personal property. Exiting one of those tents was Kenneth T. Glenn ( 01/17/1963). Once Glenn made eye contact with deputies, his demeanor shifted. Glenn begun pacing and it became apparent that he was attempting to conceal an object behind his leg. Inside the tent behind Glenn was a smoking pipe. When asked what he was hiding, he took off running.

Deputies pursued Glenn while giving verbal commands to stop running. Glenn continued on until members located him wedged between multiple peppertree vines laying on his back. Glenn was removed from the vines and brought both hands to the front of his body revealing a canister that contained two plastic baggies. At this time, Glenn quickly shoved both baggies into this mouth and attempted to swallow the contents.

While attempting to remove the contents, Glenn opened his mouth and spit the contents directly into the face of a deputy. The baggies and canister which contained two more baggies were collected as evidence. The contents inside the 4 baggies were separately identified as Cocaine and a Methamphetamine/Fentanyl mix.
