PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Charlotte County's Street Crimes Unit arrested two brothers Thursday on traffic-related and drug-related charges.
Law officers spotted the brothers in two separate vehicles driving in the area of U.S> 41 and Enterprise drive. One vehicle did not have a tag on it, the other had an obscured tag with dark tint.
They stopped the vehicles and found that the drivers, Kyle Richard Willeke, 23, of North Port, and Jessie Dean Willeke, 24, of Port Charlotte, were brothers. They also found that both Kyle and Jessie had their driving privileges suspended.
After Kyle was arrested, deputies searching him found a plastic baggie on the ground near his feet. Inside the baggie were four Oxycodone pills and 15 Hydromorphone pills. He now faces various traffic and drug charges.
When Jessie was being searched after being placed under arrest for driving on a suspended license, they found three Oxycodone pills in a folded-up piece of paper in his pocket. He now faces a drug charge and a charge for violating his probation.
