Lehigh Acres drug dealer sentenced to 7 years in federal prison
A Lehigh Acres man was sentenced Thursday to seven years in federal prison for selling controlled substances.
Nestly Jean, aka Baby Zoe, 28, pleaded guilty Jan. 14. He is a documented member of the “Zoe Pound” street gang by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
According to court documents, in the spring of 2019, law enforcement purchased crack cocaine, powder cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl from Jean over the course of four undercover deals at a residence in the Palmona Park neighborhood of North Fort Myers. During one of the transactions, Jean cooked powder cocaine into crack cocaine in front of law enforcement before selling it to them. Although Jean sold his drugs in Palmona Park, law enforcement determined that he lived in Lehigh Acres. On May 9, 2019, during a search of Jean’s home, Jean was found to be in possession of more than $18,000 in cash, an AK-47 firearm, and a large stash of drugs.
