PORT CHARLOTTE, FL. -- Two travelers on I-75 in Charlotte County were arrested Sunday afternoon about 5:35 p.m. and charged with trafficking in cocaine after the drug was found in the car's spare tire compartment.
Warren Davis, 35 was driving a 20013 Nissan rental car traveling northbound on I-75. Mr. Davis was occupying the inside lane and only driving 55 miles per hour. A traffic stop was initiated at the 150 mile marker in Charlotte County.
Shawnbria Williams, 25 occupied the right front passenger seat. The trooper immediately noticed the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the interior of the Nissan and noticed other indicators of criminal activity.
Ms. Williams provided the trooper with a false name and later recanted her story. A search of the
Nissan revealed two one-gallon size zip lock bags containing two kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride in the trunk, which was hidden in the spare tire compartment.
The suspects were booked into the Charlotte County Jail with no bond.
