PORT CHARLOTTE, FL – On June 18, a Charlotte County deputy observed a vehicle fail to stop at a posted Stop sign. The deputy conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and spoke with the driver, James Riggs, 54, and the passenger, Agnieszka Frasier, 48, who are both convicted felons.
After Riggs refused a search of his vehicle, a K9 conducted a free air sniff and alerted to the presence of narcotics. Riggs and Frasier were detained while a search was conducted, locating a meth pipe with residue, an oxycodone pill, a small clear jar containing crystal meth, a white powder which tested positive as an opiate, and 16 rounds of various ammunition. The pair were placed under arrest and the vehicle was towed to a secure yard.
The following day, a tip was received through Crime Stoppers, advising that Riggs is known to deal drugs out of the vehicle and kept them in a magnetic box hidden under the vehicle. The deputy obtained a search warrant and located the box, which contained Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Oxycodone, Morphine, Alprazolam, Buprenorphine and Sildenafil also known as Viagra.
James Riggs faces various charged related to trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of firearm ammunition or weapon by convicted felon. Agnieszka Frasier faces various charged related to possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an officer without violence.
