FMPD Officers Share Mission BBQ Officer of the Month Award

Fort Myers Police Chief Derrick Diggs presented Officers Trevor Roberts and Mitchell Daniels with the Mission BBQ Officer of the Month awards. The awards was to recognize them for their work in apprehending a habitual offender and confiscating illegal drugs.

On February 3, 2019, at approximately 11:40 p.m., the officers pulled over Mr. James Tarver (date of birth 07/07/1980) for traffic violations.  While pulling off the road, Tarver was observed throwing a white object out of the passenger side window.

Upon further investigation, additional pieces of crack cocaine were found in Tarver’s car and he was placed under arrest for driving violations and possession of 13.7 grams of cocaine within 1000 feet of a school.

For their astute police work, Officers Roberts and Daniels were presented the Officer of the Month awards by mission BBQ representative Michelle Palladino. The ceremony took place today, February 28, 2019, during the agency’s bi-weekly Citi-Stat meeting.
