Steel Bridge Road Couple Arrested Following Chase, Drugs and Stolen Firearm
On Saturday, July 1st 2017, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics agents arrested Akil Matthew Mcaden age 34, of 3990 Steel Bridge Road, Sanford. After an attempt to elude agents in a vehicle and to destroy evidence, Mcaden was apprehended and taken into custody.
Agents had three outstanding arrest warrants for Mcaden. Mcaden was processed by agents for 3 counts of possession with the intent to sell and deliver heroin, 3 counts of selling heroin, 2 counts of felony maintaining a dwelling place (3990 Steel Bridge Road) used for the storage and sales of illegal controlled substances and 3 counts of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. It is unclear at this time what exactly Mcaden attempted to destroy while in the process of eluding agents, but a small amount was recovered from the road side in a clear plastic bag.
