Police say her passenger, 33-year-old Casey Staggs, was fidgety. 

Staggs was asked to step out of the vehicle. When he complies, officers noticed his pants were unzipped and disheveled. The officer asked Staggs if he had anything illegal in his possession, Skaggs replied he did not.

Officers asked Shirley permission to search her vehicle and she agreed. 

During the search officers found three blue pills in Shirley’s purse. In a duffle bag belonging to Staggs, officers found a digital scale with meth residue on it. 

Shirley was issued a summons to appear in court on a charge of operating a vehicle while never licensed her second offense. The pills found in her purse were seized and disposed of.

Staggs was detained on a warrant for failure to appear.

While being transported to the Bedford Police Department Staggs told police he had “probably a half a gram” of meth shoved in his underwear.

Staggs was then charged with possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
