Prince Anthony Davis, 40, of Fort Myers, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for multiple charges including drug trafficking.
On December 15, 2020, the defendant sold a trafficking amount of Fentanyl to an undercover Fort Myers Police Officer by placing the drugs in a car to be retrieved for cash, then returning to get the money. He then sold drugs to another undercover officer outside of his business, a clothing store on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Two days later, the Fort Myers Police Department Vice Narcotics Unit and SWAT Team, along with the U.S. Marshals Service, served a search warrant on the defendant’s Fort Myers business. They located a trafficking amount of Methamphetamine and Fentanyl under the counter, as well as an AK-47 assault rifle and an AK-47 magazine for the weapon. The defendant was arrested, charged, and sentenced as follows:
