Bonifay, Fla. – FDLE Agents arrested Bonifay Police Officer Dwayne Frazier White, 48, for selling a controlled substance within 1000 feet of an assisted living facility and unlawful use of a two-way communication device. 

 

FDLE began its investigation in September at the request of Holmes County Sheriff’s Office.  The Sheriff’s Office received information that White was selling prescription opioid tablets.    Earlier this month, FDLE agents made a controlled purchase of opioid tablets from White. At the time of purchase, White was selling the drugs out of his marked patrol vehicle, while in uniform and was using his personal cell phone to facilitate the drug deals. 

 

White was arrested Friday night at the Bonifay Police Department.  He is being housed at the Walton County Jail. 

 

The Office of the State Attorney, 14th Judicial Circuit is prosecuting this case.  Holmes County Sheriff’s Office and Bonifay Police Department are assisting with this investigation.
