Pasco detective: Doritos bag held stash of drugs, cash

DADE CITY — A woman was arrested Tuesday night after deputies found marijuana, cocaine and more than $1,000 in a Doritos bag in her home, authorities said.

A detective walking to Lora Nanette Daniel's home at 14341 Delmar St. noticed the smell of marijuana 30 feet before he got to the front door, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report says. The detective was there because of a suspicious mail package to her address that had been intercepted, but once there, the detective also asked about the smell of drugs.

Daniel, 46, denied having marijuana in her home. She declined three times to allow a search of her home before eventually signing a consent form allowing the detective inside.

In the home, the report says, the detective found pots with cocaine residue in them, two crack pipes, a handgun in a dresser drawer and "a large Doritos bag with handles" that held about 35 ounces of marijuana, about 7 ounces of crack cocaine and $1,441 in cash.

Daniel was arrested on charges of armed trafficking of cocaine, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of paraphernalia. She remained Wednesday in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $170,150 bail.
