ENGLEWOOD, FL – Charlotte County Sheriff’s Marine Patrol deputies arrested two individuals after locating 32 grams of Meth on a vessel near Stump Pass and Thorton Key in Englewood, Wednesday.

According to authorities, at approximately 11:35 the afternoon of June 8, deputies attempting to serve a warrant, contacted two individuals on board the 35 ft. red and white sailboat that was anchored near Stump Pass and Thorton Key. The two individuals on board were identified as 41 year-old Gabriel Wagoner and 37 year-old Frances At.

Deputies placed Wagoner in custody on the Sarasota County warrant for Violation of Probation and began to search the vessel. Throughout the vessel, deputies located an array of drug paraphernalia and 32 grams of Fentanyl-laced Methamphetamine.

Both Wagoner and At were transported to the District 3 office and interviewed by members of the Narcotics Unit. At that time, Frances At admitted to selling the narcotics for profit.

“The arrest of these individuals has undoubtedly prevented numerous overdoses and the loss of lives. Overdoses are occurring far too often across the nation,” states Sheriff Bill Prummell. “We will continue to clean up our community of dealers, and of the poison they push,” he adds.

Wagoner faces charges including Amphetamine-Trafficking more than 14 grams, Violation of Probation of community patrol, and Possession or use of Drug Paraphernalia.
