Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested four suspects for illegal drugs and weapons at a home in the Naples Manor community of East Naples Friday.

According to the CCSO Facebook post, detectives with the CCSO vice asnd narcotics bureau served a search warrant at a home along the 5300 block of Trammel street, where investigators found three handguns, cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, ecstasy, fentanyl, oxycodone and Xanax among other drugs, ammunition and drug paraphernalia. Detectives also located more than $21,000 cash.

A fifth suspect was arrested on an unrelated charge as the warrant was served.

Detectives learned Joseph had an active warrant through the Miami-Dade Police Department for driving with a suspended license as a habitual offender. He was taken into custody as well.

In 2017, the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy announced that Collier County was being designated as part of the South Florida’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA). The designation opens up federal resources for drug investigations and allows for additional federal funds that can be used in drug operations such as for overtime and drug buys.
