Narcotics detectives with the Cape Coral Police Department arrested and charged two men with selling cocaine Thursday night after serving a search warrant on their residence for the third time.
Delshon Evans, 21, and Jeremiah A. Evans, 23, both of 2205 S.W. First Ave., were charged with three counts of possession of cocaine and three counts of sale of cocaine, with two of the counts within 1,000 feet of a school.
Both remained in custody Friday at the Lee County Jail. Delshon Evans is being held on $69,500 bond, while Jeremiah A. Evans is being held without bond. He was out on bond for a previous drug arrest.
This is the third search warrant that Cape detectives have served on the home. Neighbors were fed up with the alleged crack sales occurring in their neighborhood and worked with police, each time resulting in an arrest.
"For a person to openly sell drugs in a neighborhood, mere feet from a school no less, is totally unacceptable in Cape Coral. The community won't stand for it, and the Cape Coral Police Department will work as hard as it takes to put these thugs out of business," Lt. Tony Sizemore, spokesman for the CCPD, said. "As long as they keep getting released, we'll keep working to send them back to jail. They have three options: change your ways and become a productive member of society, move to another city or wind up in prison."
