PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- A Port Charlotte man called the Sheriff's Office Wednesday morning when he found an unlocked safe containing what he suspected to be drugs in front of his house.
The resident of the home, on the 23000 block of Midway Blvd., told deputies he found a black bag in the county right-of-way in front of his house. When he looked in the bag, he found an unlocked small Sentry safe that had two plastic baggies of what appeared to him to be narcotics.
The deputy field tested the contents of the baggies which tested positive for methamphetamine. One baggie contained 86 grams of crystal methamphetamine and the other baggie had 57 grams of methamphetamine. All of the items were turned in to the CCSO Evidence Unit.
According to Narcotics detectives, the street value of the drugs would be between $5,000 and $7,000.
Anyone with knowledge of illegal drug activity is asked to please call the CCSO Narcotics Unit at 941-575-2157, or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).
