CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- Two men are facing charges in Charlotte County after deputies say a traffic stop led deputies to drugs.

33-year-old Shayne Boomhower and his passenger, 39-year-old John Ohle – both previously convicted felons -- were arrested after a traffic stop Monday.

A detective reported seeing syringes in the vehicle, with one loaded with Fentanyl. Deputies say they also found a bag with pills and a digital scale.

Deputies also recorded an image of two bags they say fell from Boomhower's pants that contained meth and heroin.

Both suspects are now facing several drug charges.
