John “Quincy” Adams, 51 of Morriston, Fla., was arrested in early June in Ocala and hit with multiple felony charges related to narcotics possession with intent to distribute. On the final day of the breeze show for the OBS Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training, Adams was pulled over as part of a traffic stop about five miles from the sale grounds.
According to a redacted police report provided to the Paulick Report this week, Ocala Police Department officers received consent to search Adams’ truck, where they found one and a half pills Adams identified as Xanax, as well as a glass pipe and small baggies of various substances.
According to the report, Adams told the officers that he sells narcotics and that he does not have a valid prescription for Xanax.
Field tests conducted on the substances were positive for 2.5 grams of cocaine, 3 grams of crystal methamphetamine, and 1 gram of fentanyl.
Adams was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of controlled substance in a vehicle, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of amphetamine with intent to sell, and possession of heroin with intent to sell, the latter four all being felonies. He was arraigned on the morning of July 7, according to Florida’s digital database for the Marion County Circuit Court.
Adams has enjoyed success in the Thoroughbred auction market as a pinhooker, and began selling 2-year-olds under his Q Bar J Thoroughbreds banner in 2017.
