Cocaine Trafficking Arrest

A 28-year-old man was arrested Thursday after he tried to sell cocaine to an undercover Collier County sheriff’s deputy, sheriff’s reports said.

Elton Iram Garza told the undercover deputy that a source had just received a shipment of cocaine. Arrangements were made for the deputy to purchase 10 ounces of cocaine in exchange for $10,000, reports said.

Garza met with the undercover deputy in North Naples where he gave the deputy the cocaine.

Deputies arrested Garza, 616 Willie Mae Harper Drive, Immokalee, and charged him with trafficking in cocaine.

The seized cocaine weighed 10 oz and had an estimated street value of $12,000, arrest reports said.
