A few days after the post, marine patrol deputies noticed two suspects in Chadwick Cove on a 26-foot sailboat. Saylor was in the company of Briar Bloomer.

The owner of the boat had been arrested the day prior and had not yet been released from Charlotte County Jail.

Marine Patrol confirmed the boat owner had not given anyone permission to be on his boat. Deputies arrested Bloomer and Saylor after discovering various drug paraphernalia, a glass pipe and methamphetamine.
