A man who robbed a drug dealer at gunpoint then shot at him when he discovered the bag he thought had marijuana in it contained a hamburger instead, police said. Timethy Delarrance Morrison, 22, of the 6500 block of Northwest Dragon Street, Port St. Lucie, was charged Thursday with attempted murder, burglary, escape, possession of marijuana and providing a false name to a law enforcement officer. He was being held at the St. Lucie County Jail without bail.
The man who said he was the victim described the incident as a “drug deal gone bad” and told Port St. Lucie police it happened about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday behind a BP station in the 1200 block of Southwest Delrio Boulevard. The transaction was supposed to be for $100 worth of marijuana. The dealer said he drove to the area for the deal when Morrison walked up to his car and demanded the drugs, the affidavit states. The dealer said he gave Morrison a white bag and sped away. Morrison told police that when he looked in the bag and saw only the burger, he fired shots at the dealer’s Volvo, according to his affidavit. Police said the car had a couple of bullet holes and a shattered right rear window.
Witnesses to the deal knew Morrison by his street name only, but detectives said they used the information to track Morrison to the Sanctuary Apartments in the 5400 block of Northwest Moorhen Trail about 2 p.m. Thursday. Morrison was in the parking lot and fled on foot when he saw the detectives, but was apprehended shortly in a wooded area near the apartments, they said. Detectives found 4.7 grams of marijuana on Morrison, they said. Morrison remained at the St. Lucie County Jail Friday without bail.
