Search warrants net large drug bust in Fort Myers

Fort Myers police executing a search warrant at the 3700 block of Washington Avenue found what they were searching for. Two men, a 24 and a 25-year old, were arrested on multiple drug charges as well as resisting arrest and obstruction of justice.

Police seized a total of $11,691 in cash, drugs, and weapons. The drugs included cocaine, meth, heroin, marijuana, THC cartridges, THC wax, 151 schedule prescription drugs of various types, and 77g of an unknown white powder. The 24-year-old man faces 11 charges total, with bond set at $168,000. The 25-year-old man faces 7 charges, and a bond of $128,000. Both were booked in to the Lee County Jail.

The severity of drug charges in the state of Florida are governed by the weight of the drug intended for distribution. This includes not only the pure drug itself, but also any other chemicals or agents it may be mixed with. Trafficking is a more serious charge than distribution. It carries a minimum mandatory prison sentence. Florida Statute 893 sets out the charges and sentencing guidelines for offenders.

When faced with charges of this magnitude, it is not advisable to walk into a courtroom alone. It would be in your best interest to request legal representation as soon as possible once the charges are announced. Florida takes drug possession charges very seriously, and will not hesitate to hand down a maximum allowed sentence. An attorney may be able to negotiate a lesser charge or reduced sentence in your case.
