The driver — later identified as Jason Lamont Driggers — and his passenger seemed “uneasy” and “extremely nervous,” according to deputies. He reportedly told deputies there was nothing illegal in the car and consented to a search.
Deputies said a small yellow bag containing multiple bags of narcotics was located behind Driggers’ seat during the search. The following narcotics were seized:
- Approximately 64 grams of Methamphetamine
- Approximately 17 grams of Fentanyl
- Approximately 2 grams of Cocaine
Driggers was arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking fentanyl, and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He was booked into the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.
According to BCSO, Driggers has been arrested at least eight times since 2008 on various charges.
