A Florida gang member’s activity has been thwarted by sheriff’s deputies after they executed a search warrant.
According to investigators, on Friday Collier County Sherriff’s Office Vice and Narcotics Bureau detectives served a search warrant that resulted in the seizure of 15 firearms and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition and the arrest of a documented gang member on drug trafficking and other charges.
Yoslan Jimenez, 29, of 381 Leawood Circle, Naples, is charged with trafficking fentanyl, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of THC oil, and possession of MDMA (Ecstasy).
The search warrant was executed at Jimenez’s residence. Jimenez denied ownership of the guns and ammunition and they were seized by detectives. The investigation continues.
