Tips lead police to suspected Cape Coral drug dealer

By FOX 4 Staff. CREATED Feb 1, 2013

CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Residents helped spark a month-long  investigation into possible drug dealing by a Cape Coral man.  The probe led to the arrest of 34-year-old Danjulyn Joe Curry of 1314 SE 21st Lane on numerous drug charges.

Detectives received calls from residents living in a quiet neighborhood with concerns that Curry was selling drugs from a home where he lived with his girlfriend and their 15-month-old daughter.

Undercover detectives began making drug buys on Curry on January 23rd.  SWAT raided the home a week later.

Neighbors stood outside and cheered the police action.

A search of Curry's home found a stolen 9mm handgun, marijuana, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, heroin, scales, baggies, and other paraphernalia associated with drug dealing.

Curry was arrested on charges of cocaine trafficking, possession of heroin with intent to sell, drug sales and manufacturing in the presence of a minor among other drug charges.

He's currently in the Lee County Jail.
