A Cape Coral man was arrested Wednesday during a narcotics raid.

Members of the U.S. Marshalls Regional Fugitive Task Force served a warrant on Leonard Pitters, 26, of Northeast 11th Street in Cape Coral.

Pitters was already the suspect for an active case involving aggravated assault with a deadly weapon dating from June 17, in which he is accused of battering and later threatening a victim at gunpoint.

Detectives found several narcotics in plain view when they arrived at Pitters’ home Wednesday. The LCSO Narcotics Unit obtained a search warrant, leading to a search that found more than a kilo of cocaine, a half kilo of fentanyl, more than half a kilo of heroin, nine grams of crack cocaine, oxycodone and hydrocodone pills, two firearms and $87,452 in U.S. currency from suspected narcotics sales. Around $100,000 in street narcotics were seized altogether.

Pitters was arrested and now faces several felony charges, including trafficking in fentanyl, trafficking in heroin and trafficking in cocaine.
