Drug dealer arrested in Lehigh Acres ATF raid

A convicted drug dealer was arrested again when federal agents raided a Lehigh Acres home Thursday night. They were looking for - and found - 28-year-old Jermaine Alterma.

Authorities say they had to force their way into the home, where they later found more than 85 grams of cocaine and a loaded .40 caliber pistol.

Residents near Long Island Street and Genesee Avenue South reported hearing police sirens and saw masked ATF agents closing in on a house. They then heard a number of 'bangs' as law enforcement moved in.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Alterma has been on their radar for a long time. He is charged with distribution of cocaine and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Alterma's previous convictions include possession and sale of cocaine, felony battery, grand theft and burglary.
