CAPE CORAL, Fla. A 34-year-old heroin dealer is facing multiple drug charges, the Cape Coral Police Department said.

Quinton McCray, of 318 S.E. 17th St., was arrested Tuesday afternoon at the 2200 block of Santa Barbara Boulevard South for allegedly selling heroin near Cape Coral High School.

During his arrest, police found 2 grams of packaged heroin in his pocket, according to arrest reports.

McCray’s 4-year old son was with him at the time of his arrest, police said.

Shortly after his arrest, the Cape Coral Police SWAT team raided his home, where he lives with his girlfriend and their two children.

McCray’s girlfriend was at work during the time of the raid, police said.

Authorities discovered over 80 grams of heroin, small amounts of cocaine and Ecstasy, drug paraphernalia, a loaded gun and $17,000 in cash, police said.

Police also seized two of his vehicles.

While McCray’s girlfriend admitted she knew he was selling drugs, she was unaware how much, police said.

McCray is facing charges of trafficking heroin, sale of heroin within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of a structure to traffic narcotics with a minor present, as well as other drug charges.

He was released from jail Wednesday on a $180,000 bond.

The Department of Children and Families was notified.
