Lee County sheriff’s deputies are conducting “an ongoing investigation of significance” at a San Carlos Park home.

Lee County sheriff’s deputies are conducting “an ongoing investigation of significance” at a San Carlos Park home, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said, but they haven’t specified what they’re investigating.

Deputies are at 17363 Meadow Lakes Circle, near San Carlos Park Elementary School, for the investigation. It’s unknown when more information might become available.

The neighborhood isn’t at elevated risk, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tiffany Wood said.

More than a dozen Sheriff's Office vehicles were on the scene starting in the late morning and extending into the evening, neighbors said. A few neighbors said they didn't know who lives at the home, saying they thought it was rented.

Neighbor Greg Gremaud said one male he estimated to be in his late 20s or early 30s lived at the home, with others coming in and out of the house. Gremaud said some investigators at the home were wearing heavy duty gloves, leading him to suspect chemical use or a drug manufacturing investigation.

Gremaud said the circle, which has about 60 homes, hasn't seen crime problems in his 20-plus years there.

"It's just a quote-unquote quiet little neighborhood," Gremaud said.
