PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Two men and a 17-year-old girl were arrested Thursday on drug charges in Port Charlotte.

It started when a deputy spotted a man walking around a Ford pickup and looking inside.  As the deputy approached 22-year-old Jeremy Lucian Brown jumped inside the truck and locked the door.

The deputy saw Brown putting several bills in his mouth and chewing them.  The pills were later identified as Xanax.

The teenage girl gave deputies permission to search her truck and inside they discovered a small safe belonging to 18-year-old Mohamed Farzan Rahim.  The safe contained 85 grams of marijuana and two Xanax pills.

A search of the juvenile’s purse located a small amount of marijuana inside, but in her vehicle deputies found a white sock containing a glass smoking pipe, two baggies with 1-gram of marijuana in one and a half-gram in the other that belonged to the juvenile. 

Brown was charged with possession of Xanax, tampering with evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an officer. Rahim was charged with possession with Intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana over 20-grams, possession of Xanax, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
