U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announced the return of an indictment charging David Levon Massey, 31, of Cape Coral with possession of heroin and 40 grams or more of fentanyl with the intent to distribute. If convicted, Massey faces a minimum mandatory term of 10 years, and up to life, in federal prison. He has two prior convictions for federal drug offenses.

According to court documents, Massey was released from federal prison in February and told his probation officer that he would be living at a house in northwest Cape Coral. However, law enforcement determined that he was secretly living in an apartment off Pine Island Road in Cape Coral, and he was dealing drugs again.

On Oct. 7, the Cape Coral Police Department arrested Massey as he was leaving his apartment. A search of his home revealed around 50 grams of fentanyl, 36 grams of heroin, a cutting agent, scales and nearly $8,000 in cash.
