When asked to exit the vehicle and provide her name and date of birth, the female initially gave her sister’s name and birthdate. Later, she admitted she had previously lied and identified herself as Amber Dweck, which was later confirmed by her Florida ID card. She admitted knowing her FL license was suspended and used her sister’s name because she did not want to get in trouble.

A search of the vehicle was conducted and a metal box was located on the rear passenger seat containing two filled 270mg bottles of Methadone. The Methadone was prescribed to her sister and was filled the previous day.  Amber advised she had picked up her sister’s prescription and was delivering it to her. Amber further advised the Gabapentin was left in the vehicle by her father who was previously in the vehicle with her. The Gabapentin pills were later counted and revealed only 72 pills remained out of the original 90 pills. The prescription was filled on May 31.

Dweck, 30, of Orlando, was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Providing a False Name/ID to LEO. She was transported to the Flagler County Inmate Facility and released on $5,500 bond.
