Categories: News

The Fort Myers Police Departments Special Investigations Group with assistance from the Violent Crimes Task Force, Community Policing Officers, Public Housing Officers and uniformed patrol conducted a “Roundup” of suspected drug dealers. During the six-month operation Detectives targeted various areas within the city to include North, Central and Dunbar Districts. Detectives had received numerous calls in reference to open air drug sales and followed up on each and every one of them.

Undercover drug purchases were made from 21 suspected drug dealers resulting in 65 felony charges. Many had sold to undercover Detectives multiple times and the majority of sales took place within 1000’ of schools and parks. “The tireless work of our narcotics unit coupled with community support allowed us to identify several players involved in the illegal drug trade. The weather didn’t work in our favor today but tomorrow is another day”, said Police Spokesman Lieutenant Victor Medico. “We’ll work until we get the rest.”
