PUNTA GORDA — The Florida Highway Patrol arrested a woman on 26 drug charges on Thursday. Leah Rebekah Garrow, 42, of North Fort Myers, was pulled over by a trooper at Taylor Road and U.S. 41 in Punta Gorda because her vehicle appeared to have dark window tints and tinted tail lights. A search of her vehicle revealed multiple forged prescriptions, capsules of oxycodone and $7,590 in cash. Garrow and her passenger told the trooper conflicting stories of what they were planning to do that day. Garrow was transported to the Charlotte County Jail and charged with nine counts of forgery of a prescription, 16 counts of selling or manufacturing a counterfeit controlled substance Schedule I, II, III or IV and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
