On October 5, 2012, Sgt. Raymond Lloyd conducted a traffic stop in the course of his assigned duties as a sworn officer with the Lakeland Police Department. This traffic stop led to a DUI investigation being conducted by Officer Edds, based upon probable cause developed initially by Sgt. Lloyd.   It is alleged that Sgt. Lloyd failed to complete a supplemental report documenting his actions in a timely manner, and did not complete his supplement until four months later on 02/28/13, just prior to a Suppression Hearing related to the case.
