Police in southwest Florida reported that a 26-year-old man and 22-year-old woman were taken into custody on April 10 after the discovery of illegal drugs and a handgun. The North Fort Myers residents are being held at the Lee County Jail on charges including drug possession, drug paraphernalia possession, narcotics trafficking, attempting to elude law enforcement and driving while under the influence.
Two people were arrested in Flagler County and accused of drug charges. The two people were taken into custody behind the county's public library where they were said to be living in a makeshift homeless encampment. According to police, they are suspected of being drug dealers. Police said that the camp became an "open air drug market" and it is a point of attention in an ongoing drug roundup campaign by the Flagler County Sheriff's Office called Operation Spring Mix.
