Convicted felon arrested for gun possession and selling drugs near a daycare


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Roman Aundrel Frazier II, 28, was arrested yesterday and charged with two counts of possession of a firearm or ammunition by a convicted felon, possession of trafficking quantities of phenethylamines, possession of a synthetic narcotic with intent to sell, possession of cocaine with intent to sell within 1000 feet of a specified area, and resisting arrest without violence.

An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy reported that he observed a car leaving Holly Heights at about 7:15 p.m. last night; the car reportedly ran a stop sign and then came to a complete stop in the travel lane of SW 8th Avenue, an area that is “heavily populated with families, children, bicycles and other motor traffic at all hours of the day.”

The car turned into Hidden Oak Mobile Home Park, and a passenger got out of the car and entered the code to open the gate. Inside the neighborhood, the deputy stopped the car and asked the driver to exit the car. While gathering paperwork from the driver, deputies saw a man in the passenger seat and a woman in the rear seat and reportedly smelled a “faint odor of marijuana.”

The deputy wrote a warning to the driver, who denied consent to search the car. Deputies saw a “blunt” packaging cut in half and containing a white powder. The two passengers also got out of the car, and a deputy told them they were not free to leave. The deputy reported that Frazier kept reaching into his pockets and talking on his Bluetooth headphones. Frazier reportedly consented to a search of his person, which did not produce anything illegal.

Deputies found a backpack in the back seat, unzipped and open. Inside the backpack they reportedly found a gun; at that point, Frazier was told to put his hands behind his back, and he allegedly ran. He was tackled to the ground about ten feet away from the patrol vehicle.

A search of the backpack reportedly produced a Taurus GC2 handgun with 10 rounds of ammunition (the gun was not reported stolen), 80.1 grams of MDPV, a scale, 4 grams of cocaine, and a number of plastic baggies. Also inside the backpack was a Bluetooth headphone charger that matched the headphones worn by Frazier; the headphones reportedly did not pair to the phones of the two other occupants of the car.

During post-Miranda interviews, deputies were reportedly told that Frazier handed the backpack to the rear-seat passenger before the traffic stop and told her to put it under the seat. Frazier reportedly denied any knowledge of the backpack.

The traffic stop was within 1000 feet of the SWAG center, which provides daycare services for children.

Frazier has five felony convictions (two violent), with the most recent in 2018. He has served two state prison sentences and was released in 2020 after serving three years and six months on a charge of selling cocaine within 1000 feet of a specified location in Gilchrist County. Judge Walter Green set bail at $57,000.

  • What an idiot. Why carry all that work on you like it’s the thing to do? He’s going to rat out his connect, and his boys as well. He deserves everything he gets.

  • F & Fs again…that ain’t french fries.

    The criminals have no regard for the obeying of laws/regulations/restrictions or any governing authority.
    Protect yourselves if you’re able. Put ’em down if you have to. Your family is worth more than they are.

  • Clearly these cops looked for a reason to pull, had no probable cause to search the car, created a reason to search the car.
    Should be a easy case for a lawyer to beat.

    Doesn’t make it right that he has drugs…

    But they definitely searched after the offender denied consent.
    White stuff on a blunt wrapper my ass 😂😂

    • Clearly, he knew what he had in his possession was illegal otherwise he wouldn’t have attempted to get away. Clearly, he’s an experienced, albeit a stupid criminal, (5 felony convictions)..
      Clearly, you want to deflect the blame for his being caught on the police for doing their jobs.

    • You would be saying something different if you or your loved ones were the victim of his crimes.

  • Holly Heights is the template for the rest of the entire SWAG growing cancer area all the way to 34th St along 20th Ave. The woke city and county commies want to ban rental background checks by landlords. It’s safe to assume nobody in that area is being background checked when signing subsidized “affordable housing” crime farm leases.

  • There is an online map for crime in Gainesville. Just so happens that the dots are all clustered in a just a few high crime area’s around the vicinity. Don’t ever fault the Men and women in Blue/Green for keeping the rest of us safe from guys like this.
    It’s always the arresting officers, or judge, or state attorney that are at fault.
    Never the criminal that actually committed the crimes.
