Because Little failed to have a light on the rear of his bicycle, deputies attempted to make contact with him. As deputies approached, Little dropped the backpack and fled. Little was soon detained and search incident to arrest led deputies to recover two bags of methamphetamine totaling 230.5 grams, in Little’s backpack. He was immediately taken into custody and booked into the Sarasota County Jail.
