An Ocala man with 16 prior felony convictions was arrested Wednesday evening after a traffic stop at Buffalo Ridge Plaza in The Villages.
A vehicle in which 25-year-old Thomas Daniel Dorsa had been riding as a passenger was pulled over for traveling without headlights, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. A K-9 alerted on the vehicle and a search turned up marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Dorsa admitted it belonged to him. A criminal history check showed no prior narcotics convictions, but it did turn up 16 prior felony convictions.
He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $3,000 bond.
