On Tuesday, October 23, 2018, The Fort Myers Police Departments Special Enforcement Division, with the assistance of FMPD SWAT, Gang Suppression Unit and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tabaco, Firearms and Explosives executed a search warrant at 4004 Iroquois Avenue, Fort Myers.

As a result of the search warrant, Jaquan Alexander (DOB 08/31/1993, of Fort Myers), was arrested and charged with possession of an altered weapon, in violation of NFA laws for being in possession of an altered unlicensed black Masterpiece Arms 5.7 x 28 mm firearm. Alexander was also charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of heroin with intent to sell and possession of cocaine with intent to sell.

Jairus Brice (DOB 01/21/1991, of Fort Myers), was also arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine with intent to sell and possession of heroin with intent to sell.

A total of six (6) firearms seized from the residence:

  • Loaded Masterpiece Arms 5.7 x 28 mm Pistol with an aftermarket vertical fore grip attached to the front of the pistol under the short stock barrel.
  • Loaded Anderson Arms Multi Caliber AR15 Rifle, loaded with an extended magazine full of ammunition.
  • Loaded 45 caliber handgun
  • Marlin Firearms .22 caliber rifle
  • 30/30 caliber Rifle with Scope
  • Glock .40 caliber handgun

An abundance of different caliber ammunition and firearm magazines was located inside the residence and also inside a vehicle parked in the yard. A bullet proof vest was also located within the property.

Investigators seized Marijuana, Cocaine and Heroin from within the location which were packaged and ready for street level distribution.

$5,462.00 dollars in United States currency recovered from Jairus Brice’s bedroom was seized in violation of the Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act.

The Fort Myers Police Department continues its commitment to reduce violent crime, remove illegally possessed firearms from violent offenders and make our community a safer place to live, work and visit. Working with our partners at ATF, 6 firearms are off our streets and two violent offenders were taken into custody before any further violence can occur. Given the history of the offenders and the style and caliber of the weapons seized, it is obvious these firearms were intended for protection during drug sales and to commit violent crime.
