Deputies arrested Palm Coast residenct Lawrence Di Virgilio on Sunday, Jan. 22, after deputies spotted Di Virgilio, was known have a suspended license, driving a white GMC Sierra, according to a charging affidavit released by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.

Di Virgilio, 51, was stopped at the intersection of the Palm Coast Parkway and Old Kings Road North.

While making the stop, deputies noticed a “small glass pipe” in the driver’s side door storage compartment in plain view. The pipe had what appeared to be residue and a metal mesh inside of it consistent with being used to smoke crack cocaine, according to the report.

In a probable cause search of the vehicle, deputies found a “small white powdery rock,” a translucent orange pill container filled with the metal mesh known as Chore Boy — a brand of scouring pad commonly used when packaging a crack pipe — and a single 40 caliber hollow point round in the backseat of the passenger’s side of the vehicle.

The white rock and the residue within the pipe tested positive as cocaine, according to the report.

Di Virgilio was arrested for possession of crack cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.

Di Virgilio was originally convicted with grand theft in 1997 and possession of cocaine in 2006. Both incidents were in Flagler County.
