Three people were arrested and charged Tuesday night at a southeast Cape Coral home, including one man for 11 felony drug counts.
The Cape Coral Police Department’s Vice, Intelligence and Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at 1418 S.E. 21st Lane at 7 p.m., according to a prepared statement from the Cape Coral Police Department.
