Lehigh Acres Drug Dealer Sentenced To Eight Years In Prison

Fort Myers, Florida – U.S. District Judge John E. Steele today sentenced Tacuma Ivan Horrobin (36, Lehigh Acres) to eight years in federal prison for drug distribution and firearm offenses. He pleaded guilty on January 9, 2017.

 

According to court documents, in 2015, Horrobin sold nearly $5,000 of heroin to an undercover law enforcement officer. A subsequent search of his residence revealed additional quantities of heroin, along with cocaine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, alprazolam, suboxone, ecstasy, marijuana, and five firearms. As a previously convicted felon, Horrobin is prohibited from possessing firearms under federal law. Officers also recovered numerous items used for the preparation, packaging, and distribution of controlled substances, including cutting agents, digital scales, and cookware from his home.

 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Michael Leeman and Michael Bagge-Hernandez.
