Last week, U.S. District Judge John E. Steele sentenced Tacuma Ivan Horrobin, 36, of Lehigh Acres, to eight years in federal prison for drug distribution and firearm offenses.

He pleaded guilty on Jan. 9.

According to court documents, Horrobin sold nearly $5,000 of heroin to an undercover law enforcement officer in 2015.

A subsequent search of Horrobin's home revealed additional quantities of heroin, along with cocaine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, alprazolam, suboxone, ecstasy and marijuana.

Five firearms were also discovered in the home. As a previously convicted felon, Horrobin is prohibited from possessing firearms under federal law.

Officers recovered numerous items used for the preparation, packaging, and distribution of controlled substances, including cutting agents, digital scales, and cookware from his home.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael Leeman and Michael Bagge-Hernandez prosecuted the case.

It was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
