Drug Trafficker Sentenced

Yoslan Jimenez was adjudicated guilty and sentenced to the maximum sentence of 5 years in prison for Grand Theft and Use of a Two-Way Communication Device to Commit
a Felony. He was also sentenced to 6 years in prison for Trafficking in Oxycodone, three counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Marijuana.

The charges involve two cases. In the first, from July 2022, members of the Collier County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Bureau and Vice and Narcotics Bureau served a search warrant at the defendant’s residence. Numerous illegal drugs were found, including a trafficking amount of Oxycodone, as were firearms with hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

In the Grand Theft case, the defendant negotiated a drug deal with an undercover agent for the purchase of 1,000 pressed fentanyl pills. The undercover agent gave the defendant $2500 of Collier County Sheriff’s Office investigative funds for the sale. The defendant left to go retrieve the drugs and did not come back.

Assistant State Attorney Sarah Woodward prosecuted the cases.
