By FOX 4 Staff. CREATED Sep 10, 2013

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Fort Myers police served a search warrant Monday night that resulted in the seizure of drugs, money and one arrest.

The operation went down in the 6200 block of Demery Circle following a four month investigation.

Police seized nearly half a kilo of cocaine worth about $18,000 on the street.  They also found 45 grams of heroin worth $4,500.  They also found more than $2,000 in cash along with drug parapernalia.

The drug operation also used multiple surveillance cameras to warn the suspects of police.

So far only 25-year-old Edricka Leshaye Cook has been arrested for trafficking in cocaine and heroin.  Three other suspects fled the house and eluded capture.  Detectives expect to make more arrests in the coming weeks.
