Yeah yeah yeah, it’s Friday the 13th…


Here is what going on..

A woman was arrested for trafficking fentanyl and distribution/delivery of the drug within 1000 feet of a church or school. The Lee County detectives arrested Stasia Bolitho on Wednesday after finishing an investigation into the transportation of illegal narcotics. Detectives found 1.06 kilograms of highly dangerous fentanyl, which has a street value of about $30,000. The amount of fentanyl that was found is enough to kill 530,000 average-sized adults.

The NBC2 First Alert Hurricane Tracking Team is keeping a close on tropical development over the southern and central Bahamas, where a tropical depression could form later this morning. Development is expected to be very slow today due to some wind shear plus a little dry air on the west side of the disturbance. This system will be close enough to Southwest Florida to increase our rain chances some today, but we won’t see much out there until this afternoon. Today won’t be a washout (all-day rain) but we’re going to track several passing showers and storms spreading in from east to west this afternoon. Saturday’s forecast looks very similar. Expect scattered areas of rain and storms at times, but based on the current track of soon-to-be Humberto, it’s not going to be a washout. Jason has all the updates coming up.

You may have seen the 7.8 acre empty lot. It’s right on the corner of McGregor Boulevard and Altamont Avenue. It was once a plaza with shopping and restaurants, but for the last several years, it’s been sitting untouched. The developer of the site said next week they’ll begin construction on phase one, which is an apartment complex. It’ll have more than 300 units and a garage. The remaining space will be used for retail and to build either a hotel or office space Local downtown residents are happy to hear the project is beginning.
