Fort Myers man trafficked drugs while out on bond

A 48-year-old North Fort Myers man who was out on bond from a previous drug trafficking arrest was arrested again on Friday, September 27th for the same crimes. He had been released after posting a $235,000 bond on May 13th.

Based on a tip received by the Lee County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit, a search warrant was obtained for the man's residence in the 8000 block of Bartholomew Drive. There, officers found a large quantity of multiple illegal drugs and controlled substances. They included Fentanyl, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, MDMA, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, morphine, and Xanax.

He has been charged with trafficking in fentanyl, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, eight counts of possession of a controlled substance, and owning or renting a structure to traffic illegal drugs. Arraignment has been set to take place on October 28th. It is very likely that he will now be held without bond.

Any Defendant facing drug charges of this magnitude, especially when arrested while already out on bond, should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately for guidance on how to proceed. It is not advised that one speak to law enforcement or any other authorities without an attorney present under these circumstances. In doing so, a person could jeopardize any chance at a plea deal or lesser sentence that a skilled attorney could have negotiated. Do not walk into a courtroom alone when a potential life sentence is on the table.
