Police smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle. Inside, they found a handgun, a large plastic bag with marijuana residue, a small bag of marijuana, a scale, a broken bong wrapped in a towel and $390 in cash. Gamble said the cash was from his sales in the last three hours, according to the report.
After Gamble was read his Miranda rights, he told police he distributes as much as a pound of marijuana a day to students on campus and across Boca Raton. On busy days, he said he can make up to $1,000, according to the report. He told police he owns the gun because selling drugs “is dangerous.” Gamble claimed that in 2016, he was robbed at gunpoint during a deal in North Miami. Though he had his gun on him at the time, “but did not have the opportunity to use it,” according to the report.
