A local Jacksonville man stopped for speeding in Holly Ridge Friday, April 6 has bonded out of jail on a $22,500 bond.
Daniel Tyler Parker was traveling at 66 mph in a 45 mph zone through Holly Ridge early May 6 morning, when he was stopped by Holly Ridge Police Department. When the officer who initiated the traffic stop approached Parker’s vehicle, she smelled a strong odor of vanilla. Parker then informed the officer that he had a weapon concealed under his driver’s seat.
