69-Year-Old Florida Fentanyl Dealer Behind Bars After Months-Long Investigation

A 69-year-old suspected drug dealer is behind bars and the seizure of trafficking amounts of fentanyl and cocaine and nearly $100,000 cash, concluded a months-long investigation.

“The sheer volume of the drugs this individual was dealing and the amount of fentanyl he was putting out on the street was significant,” Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said. “This was an outstanding arrest thanks to terrific investigative work by our Vice and Narcotics Bureau detectives.”

William “Bill” Jones, 69, of 6513 Autumn Woods Blvd. faces more than a dozen charges including five counts of fentanyl trafficking 28 grams or more, four counts of cocaine trafficking 28 grams to 200 grams, and one count of trafficking cocaine 200 grams or more.
