North Fort Myers Narcotics Dealer Arrested
In response to the ongoing opioid crisis, members of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit began targeting suspected Heroin & Fentanyl dealers operating within Lee County. During the investigation, detectives identified a suspected narcotics dealer and career criminal, with over twenty six (26) arrests in Lee County, as Christopher Eugene Taylor (DOB 1/08/86).
