A local police patrol in Cape Coral is said to have uncovered a possible marijuana growing operation in a residence in the southwestern portion of the city on March 15. They apparently alerted the force's narcotics unit, and an investigation was said to have commenced. A man apparently arrived at the home around 5:10 p.m., though there was no indication provided to describe what connection he purportedly had to the residence.
Sometimes when Florida residents are charged with drug possession crimes, the allegations are a part of other charges filed against the individual. For example, erratic driving could prompt a traffic stop by police officers. If drugs are found in a subsequent search of the vehicle, drug possession charges could well result.
