According to the officer that discovered the drugs, Bryson Bryant was “sitting on the grass” in front of a residence talking to another cop when he took his flashlight to inspect Leakes’ 33-year-old son’s Durango.

“On the center console near the gear shift, in plain view, was a small plastic bag that contained a white powdery substance,” the report read.

The officer said he suspected the bag contained either cocaine or fentanyl. “I field-tested the white powdery substance, which provided a presumptive positive for fentanyl,” he wrote.

“Leakes was assisted to his feet and placed in handcuffs,” the report continued, adding he was told that he was under arrest for loitering and prowling “for being within the curtilage of the residence without permission from the homeowner.”

The report also stated that no other drugs were found in Bryson’s vehicle. As exclusively reported, Leakes’ son was arrested on July 3 and charged with felony possession of Fentanyl and a misdemeanor for loitering/prowling.
