Two arrested for homicide in Ft. Myers drug deal

Two suspects have been arrested in a fatal shooting that took place on September 22nd in Fort Myers. Both males, one 19-years-old and the other 21-years-old, are from another state. They are charged with second degree homicide and robbery after fatally shooting a 23-year-old Fort Myers man in what is now known to be a drug deal gone bad. The suspects travelled to the location of the crime to purchase marijuana.

Fentanyl bust near Fort Myers youth complex

One 34-year-old male drug dealer who was well-known to Fort Myers law enforcement agencies was arrested in an undercover drug bust on September 26th. The arrest took place outside of a youth program complex, which was the location chosen by the dealer to make the sale, unknowingly, to an undercover narcotics agent. The bust was set up utilizing information gathered from a confidential informant to the Lee County Sheriff's Office narcotics unit.

Enhanced penalties for drug crimes near parks, schools

Like many other states, Florida has special laws for those accused of selling controlled substances around certain places. For instance, a person accused of certain drug crimes near a school, a public park, public housing, child care facilities, or certain other community facilities where children and families are likely to congregate will face enhanced penalties if convicted.

Police task force effort nets 120 arrests

Local police, in coordination with the U.S. Marshals and other law enforcement agencies, recently announced that they arrested 120 people in the greater Fort Myers area and other communities in Lee County over the course of two months. Charges are still pending against most of those who have been arrested.

Prescription fraud charges can compound legal troubles

Not every drug crime directly involves the possession, sale, or delivery of controlled substances or other drugs. For example, as part of law enforcement's response to the ongoing prescription drug crisis, investigators and prosecutors are paying special attention to what they see as abuses of our pharmacy system.

K-9 search leads to Fort Meyers drug arrest

A Fort Meyers police officer arrested two young men after searching their vehicles and allegedly locating illegal drugs and firearms. One of the men faces a drug crime charge, specifically, possession of marijuana, as well as a charge related to his possessing a firearm with a felony conviction.

Facing a 'zero tolerance' atmosphere when it comes to drug crimes

Of all the states in the country in which law enforcement officials seemingly have a "zero tolerance" policy when it comes to the enforcement of illegal drug laws, some may say Florida takes the cake. As one of the most populous states as well as one through which many illegal drugs enter the country, state and federal law enforcement officials certainly maintain an active presence in Florida. This can have an impact on many different types of cases, from those involving allegations of wide-ranging drug smuggling operations, to those involving something as simple as the possession of marijuana.

Drug crimes include manufacturing and cultivating illegal drugs

Most of our readers in Florida know that if people are caught with illegal drugs in their possession they will likely face criminal charges. However, there are other ways that illegal drugs can lead to criminal problems for Florida residents. Manufacturing or cultivating illegal drugs, for example, can also lead to criminal charges.
