SEBASTIAN – The Sebastian Police Department received a call from Robert Buckman who wanted an officer present while he retrieved his motorcycle and other belongings from his residence near Shady Rest Mobile Home Park.

Buckman was met by Roxxanna Buhr, 56, who answered the door. As he entered the residence, Buhr began to argue with him.

During the argument, one of the officers saw Buhr push an object up the sleeve of her sweatshirt. She was asked to exit the residence, and that’s when officers observed a metal smoking pipe that is used when smoking crack cocaine.

Police asked Buhr if she had used any drugs recently and she said she had “not smoked any cocaine yet,” according to the report.
