Suspected Fentanyl Dealer Arrested Paying Traffic Fine with ‘Buy’ Money

Hiring a Saint Lucie Fentanyl Arrest Lawyer

WPEC-TV reported on November 20, 2019, that the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said it had arrested a 35-year old man who was paying a traffic fine using the sheriff’s own “buy” money from an investigation into his drug. Sheriff Ken Mascara told WPEC that the 109 grams of fentanyl seized was the largest fentanyl recovery the agency had ever done and the largest in the four counties.

The sheriff’s office charged the man with trafficking fentanyl after undercover agents and informants made nine different buys from the man at his home and from his vehicles. Mascara said detectives also recovered heroin, cocaine, marijuana and two hand guns, which led to him being charged with possession of firearms by a felon.

While detectives served the search warrant at the man’s home, the sheriff placed a sign on the lawn reading, “Drug House — Closed for Business.” The office was also in the process of taking the man’s car and motorcycle through the forfeiture process.
