Miami Springs Police announced the arrest of Josvany Garcia-Lara on Sunday, July 10, 2022. According to Police, Garcia-Lara was in the driver’s seat of a Hyundai that was parked on the lot of a closed business. (It was approximately 10pm on Sunday.) The Officer that spotted the vehicle ran a records check and noticed the license plate was registered to a Volkswagen instead of a Hyundai. (Editor’s note: Parking in a closed business was the first suspicious activity. Now, the car’s plates are for another car. That’s now two suspicious activities the officer is aware of before approaching the vehicle.)
According to Miami Springs Police, the officer approached the driver who was identified as Josvany Garcia-Lara. According to the Police, Garcia-Lara allegedly informed them he knew the business was closed, but was waiting for his wife. He allegedly also knew the license plate belonged to another vehicle.
According to Police, Garcia-Lara consented to a search of the Hyundai. That’s when Miami Springs Police say they allegedly found several small clear baggies containing suspected methamphetamine.
A K-9 unit responded to the scene to assist with the investigation. The K-9 alerted officers to an area under the steering column. According to Police, they found a small container attached to the steering column with a magnet. MSPD alleges they found more suspected methamphetamine inside the container.
As a result, Garcia-Lara was arrested and charged with Amphetamine Trafficking.
