Author: wink news

NAPLES, Fla.- Collier County detectives have arrested an 18th person in connection to last week’s drug bust in Golden Gate Estates.

Kevin Wilkinson is now facing a heroin trafficking charge.

Investigators carried out the sweep a week ago at a home on 8th Avenue Northwest, off Wilson Boulevard, cutting off a major heroin pipeline to Southwest Florida. Deputies seized $120,00 worth of heroin, pills, cash, firearms, ammunition, and vehicles.

Deputies say they expect even more arrests in this case.
