Tips from residents of a Cape Coral neighborhood led to a monthlong police investigation into possible drug dealing by a Cape Coral man. The investigation culminated with the arrest of Danjulyn Curry, 34, of 1314 SE 21st Lane.
Detectives received calls from residents about concerns that Curry was selling drugs out of his home, where a child also resided. Police began their investigation and arranged for an undercover detective to buy drugs from Curry.
Curry allegedly sold crack cocaine to police on Jan. 23. Detectives then secured a search warrant for the home and the CCPD SWAT team raided the residence on Wednesday.
A search of Curry's home allegedly revealed a stolen 9mm handgun, marijuana, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, heroin, scales, baggies and other drug paraphernalia.
Curry was charged with cocaine sell, cocaine possess, drugs deliver distribute methaqualone or mecloqualone derivative, cocaine traffick 28 grams less than 150 kilograms cocaine or mixture, opium or derivative traffick 4 grams to under 30 kilograms, drugs produce possess structure vehicle know drugs manufactured minor present, heroin possess with intent to sell manufacture or deliver, drugs equipment possess and or use, possess of weapon or ammo by convicted Florida felon and marijuana possess not more than 20 grams.
He was booked into the Lee County Jail, where he remained Friday on no bond.
"This case is a classic example of police-community partnership," Lt. Tony Sizemore, spokesman for the Cape police, said. "Concerned neighbors made a conscious choice to get involved and take stock in their neighborhood. They didn't stand pat and accept a criminal selling drugs in their community, they called their police department."
