Man gets 15 years for trafficking heroin

Published: Updated:


CAPE CORAL, Fla.- A man who was busted by narcotics detectives twice last year for drug trafficking, has taken a plea that will land him in prison for 15 years.

Lorenzo Marquez, 48, pled guilty on Tuesday to two counts of trafficking in heroin and trafficking in his homemade opiate pills that he was pressing.

“This is an example of the outstanding work the men and women of the Cape Coral Police Department Vice, Intelligence, and Narcotics Unit do.  We want to thank the State Attorney’s Office for their hard work in getting this case ready and in securing the plea that will get a big  drug dealer off the streets of Cape Coral for a long time to come,” said Sgt. Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department.
