Couple arrested for drugs after passing out with toddler.

On September 27, 2017, Port St. Lucie Police arrested Casey Lynn Shaffer (19 years old, 707 Mades Drive, Fort Pierce) for 2 counts of possession of controlled substance without prescription (Heroin and Clonazepam) and child neglect.  Police also arrested Dontae Minocal Jean (24 year old, 2007 Mercy Drive, Orlando) for 2 counts of possession of controlled substance (Heroin and Clonazepam).

The investigation began on September 27, 2017 at around 10:30 am when the management of the Holiday Inn, located at 1601 NW Courtyard Circle, called police for a couple passed out in their room with a 3 year old boy also asleep.

The manager told police that they were investigating a complaint that a room on the third floor was taking in water from the room above them.  The manager was unable to get a response from the room on the fourth floor so he used a master key to gain entry.  Once in the room the manager found Shaffer and Jean passed out on the bed with Shaffer’s 3 year old boy also asleep in the room.  Further investigation revealed that the bath tub water was running and overflowed onto the bathroom floor.

The manager called police after he could not wake the sleeping couple.  Police arrived at the room and was able to wake Shaffer and Jean.  Police saw three small zip lock type baggies where the couple was laying.  Further investigation revealed the baggies contained marijuana, 10 pills of Clonazepam, and Heroin.

Shaffer and Jean were arrested and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail for booking.  The 3 year old boy was turned over to a family member.
