(Port Charlotte) A Port Charlotte man was arrested on multiple narcotics charges Monday after he was allegedly involved in four separate drug deals with Sheriff’s Office Narcotics detectives.
Detectives arrested Chase Roberts Glorioso, 23, of 22342 Walton Avenue in Port Charlotte, at the completion of what is alleged to be his fourth sale of narcotics in less than one month.
According to reports, undercover Narcotics personnel met with Glorioso as his residence on Wednesday April 17, purchasing three Hydromorphone pills from him for $105. On Monday April 22, undercover operatives met with Glorioso at a county park and purchased three more Hydromorphone pills. Later that same day, other undercover detectives purchased three Oxycodone capsules from Glorioso.
On Monday, undercover Narcotics detectives met with Glorioso in the area of Easy Street and Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte to purchase three more Hydromorphone pills. Glorioso gave the detective one pill but said he could direct them where to get two more.
At this point, other members of the Narcotics Unit moved in to place Glorioso under arrest. They recovered the $105 in pre-recorded funds from Glorioso’s pocket. He was charged with three counts of Sale and Delivery of a Controlled Substance, one count of Sale and Delivery of a Controlled Substance within 1000 ft. of a Specified Area, four counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance and one count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He is being held on $56,000 bond.
