The Fort Myers Police Department's special investigations group arrested and charged 15 people, including one Cape Coral woman, in connection with a street level narcotics investigation, according to officials.

Police began the sweep of alleged drug dealers in the central and Dunbar sections of the city last week.

During the three-month-long investigation, undercover detectives reportedly purchased drugs from 23 people, totaling 71 felony charges. Eleven people were from one neighborhood along the Henderson Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard corridor.
