A 34-year-old Floral City man is accused of drug trafficking.

Allen Gage, of 3138 East Vernon Court #3, is now charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug trafficking.

He is being held on $33,000 bond.

According to an arrest affidavit, Gage was stopped Tuesday morning on East Gulf to Lake Highway.

Citrus County deputies say when Gage got off his motorcycle they noticed a bulge in his pants where his belt buckle would be.

Deputies say they found a pill bottle containing four different opiates.  They identified the opiates as 30 milligrams of morphine, 10 milligrams of methadone, 10 milligrams of methadone hydrochloride and nine milligrams of hydromorphone.

Also inside the bottle was a small plastic bag containing meth, deputies say.

An arrest affidavit states Gage admitted he was heading to Inverness to distribute the drugs.

Gage was arrested and his motorcycle towed from the scene.
