    BAD & BAD: Home Invasion - Thugs Get Away, Homeowner Arrested - Ft. Myers, FL

    Lee County deputies investigate home invasion, discover marijuana at the scene : Lee : Naples Daily News

    According to a Lee County Sheriff's Office news release, deputies were called to 8721 Ortiz Circle, in Fort Myers, on Friday, Jan. 02, 2009, at approximately 3:30 p.m. in reference to a home invasion robbery. Due to the nature of the situation, detectives with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Robbery Unit assumed the investigation.

    Detectives learned from the victim that at approximately 3:20 p.m., three men knocked on the front door of her home. When she answered the door, all three men forcibly entered the home and displayed weapons to the victims. The suspects took a jewelry box and immediately left the home on foot. They then got into an older model gray Oldsmobile and left the scene. There were no injuries during the incident.

    The three suspects are described as black males, 16-25 years of age. One of the individuals was described as having dread-locks, with the other two having short hair. One of the suspects was described as wearing a white tank top and blue jeans.

    Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at (239) 477-1000, or Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).

    As robbery detectives conducted their investigation, they discovered an undisclosed amount of marijuana both inside and outside the home. Detectives with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Intelligence Narcotics Division responded to the scene to assume that portion of the investigation. No charges have been filed at this time. The incident remains under investigation.
    Now why wouldn't you hide the dope before calling the police to report the invasion/robbery? How stupid can you be?

    The article doesn't say the homeowner was arrested.
    I'm sure it was for 'medicinal' purposes

    Can we say STUPID!! Of course if your high your not going to think about hiding the dope, after all that's not what the cops are going to be looking for.

    It would've been a good idea to do some quick "flushy" time before the call then.

    A sad case of what seems to be a "regular" home burglary, but the homeowner was busted due to MJ. And I'm guessing it was more than a trivial amount...

    This _EXACT_ same scenario happened in my zone last week.

    I didn't think to post it as it's simply a case of criminals preying on criminals.
    But as this is here I'll go back and recover it from the local news archive for posting.

    The marijuana outside may of been growing plants,they should at least of hung christmas tree lights on them to make them look like special trees,all it takes is for an officer to see some pot seeds or a joint and he has established PC to search

    I wonder if the victims ever did a home invasion to steal stuff so they could buy pot?

    Im betting the answer is no.

    Im all for freeing the non violent drug offender to open up more space for pedophiles and rapists etc...

    You're absolutely correct. There's a reason the US has the largest prison population in the world. And at about $50k per prisoner per year (I believe, I might be wrong on the figure), we needed to have done something long, long ago.

    It could really help reduce a lot of the crime associated with this drug. Remember that what got our NFA weapons near-banned was the gangster era of the Prohibition period. It had nothing to do with alcohol per se, but just the illegality surrounding it. Black markets breed crime, that is a fact.

    There is no logic in banning MJ... and maybe we can extend that to several other drugs as well. IMO people should be free to do what they want, and put in their own bodies... if they want to take harder drugs and mess up their life, that should be their choice.

    IT's time to stop the madness and stop wasting our LE's time. Especially with fading police budgets, we need to focus on real, victim-oriented crime. As of right now, the only justification for MJ legislation is that the distribution network breeds crime. Well, the only reason it breeds crime is because MJ is a crime itself. So... its self-defeating in a sense.

    I agree with Paul34.

    I would never use hard drugs even if they were legal. I believe many think that way. If someone wants to do hard drugs...let it be on their health. Let them kill themselves....purge themselves from the gene pool.

    BUT any crime done because of their drug use or to steal to support their drug use should be dealt with in the most severe manner. Limit their use of public money and health care if they are not paying for it themselves.

    I tend to agree with the statements previously mentioning the decriminilization of MJ but not of heavier drugs.

    My reasoning is the potential benefits: 1. the lowered prison population and associated costs = taxpayer savings. 2. the potential for lowering the cost of the war on drugs= taxpayer savings. 3. the potential for increasing federal and state tax revenues through a usage\sales tax = money for increased border security. 4. the potential to stop the exports of massive amounts of dollars being exported to the drug cartels = thus helping the Mexican government fight said drug cartels and keeping that money circulating here in the U.S. economy.
