32 arrested in drug trafficking operation

Posted: Updated:

The Lee County Sheriff's Office arrested 32 drug traffickers under operation Fall Frenzy.

The two-month undercover operation found that those arrested moved large amounts of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine and marijuana.

“I hope this operation serves as a reminder that we will not tolerate this kind of activity in our community you can all sleep better tonight these thugs are behind bars where they belong,” said Sheriff Carmine Marceno with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.  

Deputies still have warrants out for the arrests of 12 additional people.

Seven billboards throughout Lee County will flash those wanted faces at major intersections, including Colonial Boulevard and Metro Parkway.

Anyone with information about the suspected drug dealers is asked to call Crime Stoppers.
